Independent Housing (Self-Arranged)
You are welcome to arrange your own housing in Copenhagen if allowed by your home university. DIS cannot assist with rent payments, deposits, furnishings, bedding, etc. But we do offer some advice and also post various room/apartment offers on DIS Forum (an intranet for accepted DIS students). Note that your local transportation costs are not included when choosing independent housing. There is a fee when choosing independent Housing. This fee covers services from Student Affairs such as comprehensive medical, accident and liability insurance, Arrival workshop and orientation, 24-hour emergency cell phone support, various social and cultural events as well as support and counseling.
The deadline for switching from DIS-arranged housing to self-arranged housing is one month prior to arrival. If you switch after this deadline, a cancellation fee of USD $100 plus additional direct costs associated with the housing change will be applied.
