Due to severe student housing shortages in the Greater Copenhagen area, it is IMPERATIVE that students accepted onto the Kansas/Copenhagen exchange apply for student housing via the UCHF as soon as the UCHF sends out e-mailed invitations to apply for housing via the UCHF’s on-line system (usually in June for Academic Year applicants, and mid- to late November for Spring applicants).
The University of Copenhagen offers incoming exchange students a Mentor Program, which pairs incoming students with a Danish student, usually studying the same subject as the KU applicant. The mentor can help newly-arrived students get settled in with practical advice for registering with the Danish authorities, shopping locations and getting familiar with the University.
The University of Copenhagen is located on four main campuses in central Copenhagen. Most KU students take courses on the City Campus (Social Sciences) or the South Campus (Humanities). A student's perspecitve on each campus can be found here in the independent student newspaper, Uniavisen.
