Living expenses

There is no getting around the fact that living in Denmark can be quite expensive.

Students are required to cover their entire living expenses: meals, accommodation, transport, books, materials, and clothing, as well as any other living costs.

We cannot accommodate all students close to the campus, so the cost of transport can be quite high. However, public transportation in Copenhagen is very reliable, punctual, and will take you everywhere you need to go.

In Copenhagen the trains, Metro, and busses (including waterbuses) can be accessed with the same ticket. All you need to know is how many zones you will be passing on your journey.

During Introduction Week we will introduce you to public transport in the greater Copenhagen area. But please note that as long as you have a CPR-number and a NemID, you are entitled to a public transport discount: Ungdomskort.

Cheaper still is to hop on your bike. The Copenhagen area has an extensive cycle-path system. We strongly advise you to invest in a bike. You can buy a used bike for around EUR 135. Learn more about public transport and bikes.

 Please note that there is 25 per cent consumer tax (‘moms’) on all goods and services sold in Denmark. In stores, this consumer tax is always included in the price.
