Under the menu item “Create user”, select which package you want (Introductory package, Intermediate package or Premium package). Once you have selected a package, fill in the fields with personal information. Please note that the field “Coupon code” is not a mandatory field, but can only be used if you have received a code from kbh-kollegier.dk.

After filling in your personal details, you will need to enter your payment details (note: regular Dankort cannot be used). To save the information and sign up as a member, tap “Sign me up”.


If you have used a regular Dankort to pay for your subscription, your subscription has not been paid for and you are therefore not registered. Instead, use a payment card such as VISA or Mastercard. If you don’t have a VISA or Mastercard, we can help you set up your account manually. A manually created subscription costs DKK 149 for 30 days of access. Contact us at mail@kbh-kollegier.dk.

If you are studying outside of Greater Copenhagen, e.g. in Næstved or Slagelse, there are still Copenhagen dormitories where you are eligible to apply. However, the selection is significantly smaller than if you were studying in Greater Copenhagen or Roskilde. As a member of kbh-kollegier.dk, you can read about each dormitory’s application requirements under “Kollegier” in the menu. Note that Roskilde is mostly considered part of Greater Copenhagen.


At kbh-Kollegier.dk you will find 46 student halls of residence that accept residents based on motivated applications. This can be a quicker route to a dorm room than the traditional waiting list.

In the application, write about yourself and why you should be the one to get a room in the dormitory. For example, tell us about your interests, where you’re from, etc. It’s also a good idea to write about what you would bring to the dormitory as a resident. In many cases, it is the students themselves who read and assess the motivated applications. Read more about the motivated application.

As a member of kbh-kollegier.dk, you can easily find dormitories that accept motivated applications and see their requirements for formalities and the like.


280 halls of residence with a total of more than 34,000 student residences.


In many cases, you can start your application a year before you expect to start your studies, even if you don’t yet know if you have been accepted. Please note that application requirements often vary from dorm to dorm and some dorms only accept applications 3 months before the expected start of studies. As a member of kbh-kollegier.dk, you can easily dive into each dormitory’s application requirements.


Yes! Halls of residence are certainly not just for students in higher education/universities. There are many student accommodations where all degrees, whether they are characterized as short, medium or vocational, make you eligible to apply.

At KBH-Kollegier.dk, you can use our search system to see which halls of residence your education qualifies you to apply to. You can choose from the following educational institutions:

  • Youth education (STX, HF, HHX, HTX)
  • Vocational education (NEXT and TEC etc.)
  • Apprentice
  • Short higher education
  • Professional Bachelor (Metropol, Campus Roskilde, Niels Brock, CPH Business, KEA, University College UCC and others)
  • University of Copenhagen
  • Technical University of Denmark
  • Copenhagen Business School
  • Other bachelor and master programs (RUC, ITU, AU, DPU, SDU, DADK, etc.)
  • PhD students
  • International students (exchange students)


The short answer: it’s a myth that living in a dorm is expensive. In 2020, KBH-Kollegier.dk conducted a study that showed that there are more than 11,600 student and dormitory homes in Copenhagen with a maximum rent of DKK 3,500 per month. The lowest dorm rent is DKK 1,500 per month.

If you’re interested in finding one of these cheap student and halls of residence, it’s all about looking in the right places and having a good grasp of the application process. At Kbh-Kollegier, we are ready to help you do just that.
