What housing options do I have in Copenhagen?

It is no secret that the housing market in Copenhagen is not easy, but you do have several options. You can rent apartments – websites like www.boligportal.dk can be helpful, and there are hundreds of Facebook groups where rooms are posted. If you’re looking for a room, www.findroommate.dk can also be great. Lastly, Copenhagen has a lot of different dorms that are also great options (e.g. www.kollegiernerskontor.dk).

Always be aware of scams – if it looks too good to be true, it probably is. Rooms in Copenhagen can range from 3000-6000DKK (and upwards). Make sure to read up on common housing scams and do not transfer money to anyone before ensuring that they’re legitimate.

Do I have free time during intro?

Your tutors will give you a full program for the intro period where you can see everything they have planned (possibly including optional activities in the afternoon and evening).  

What do I do if I'm late for intro?

Inform your tutors if you are not able to be there for the entire intro period and they will make sure that you get any information you might miss.

What is the dress code at CBS?

There is no dress code at CBS! You can wear whatever you feel most comfortable in – whether that’s a suit or jeans and a t-shirt.

How do I register for classes?

You don’t. Registration for classes happens automatically when you are registered for your program so you do not have to worry about that.

Where can I buy books?

You can find out what books you need at www.academicbooks.dk. You can also buy the books at Academic Books (they have a store at Solbjerg Plads) or you can talk to previous students from your program and buy second-hand books.

How do I get around Copenhagen?

Copenhagen is known for all its bikes and it is a great and easy way to get around! You have the option of buying or renting a bike, or getting a subscription for city bikes that are parked around Copenhagen. If you’re not up for biking, all the CBS campuses are placed near metro stations and are really easy to get to. Lastly you can always use the bus, the 9A stops right in front of Solbjerg Plads.
