MSc students who have applied for the MSc program before the March deadline and have been admitted can apply for accommodation. Deadline for applying for accommodation is May 1st.
Exchange students can apply for accommodation before May 1st for the autumn semester and before November 1st for the spring semester.
At DTU, we guarantee to find accommodation for our international MSc students for a period of maximum 2 semesters. For the 3rd and 4th semester the MSc students have to find accommodation themselves. For our exchange students, we do not guarantee accommodation, however, we do our utmost to find accommodation for all the students who apply within the deadline. We provide accommodation services only under strict conditions as there is a housing shortage in Denmark and rooms are in short supply. Therefore we recommend that you search for accommodation on your own! Please read the following carefully.
First and foremost, do not apply for a room until you have received an acceptance letter from our admissions office. You cannot apply to DTU for accommodation without your CampusNet login number. After having received your CampusNet login you can download the accommodation form which must be completed type-written and returned by e-mail to the Accommodation Office:
Please notice that you need to install the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to fill out the accommodation form.
MSc degree students accommodation form.
Exchange students accommodation form.
If we find you an accommodation, you will receive a rental agreement by email. Once you have accepted the offer, you will recieve a log-in and a password to our on-line payment system, as you are required to pay an accommodation fee of DKK 750 plus deposit (equals 1 months rent) and first month’s rent. Details will be stated in the rental agreement. Please note that the accommodation fee is a non-refundable fee.
The rental agreement will specify the address, the dates of the lease, the monthly rent and the amount of the first payment (rent + deposit + accommodation fee).
DTU’s offer of accommodation is made once only. You can decline it by sending an e-mail to . If you decline it, it will not be renewed and you will be responsible for finding your own accommodation.
DTU reserves the right to re-allocate your room should you fail to present yourself on the date specified on your accommodation form. If you arrive before the date specified in your lease you must find your own accommodation until your lease comes into effect.
Important: A room is booked for the duration of the lease. If you have to move, one month's written notice must be submitted to the Accommodation Office. In case the room is a room with a family, you need to inform both the landlord and the Accommodation Office. Please note that it must be submitted before the 1st of the month. If you submit your cancellation the 1st or later in the month, you have to pay for the following month, even though you will not be staying in your room. These terms are as stipulated by the Danish Rent Act.
It is essential that students requiring accommodation return the application form as soon as possible after notification of admission. Applications received later than May 1st for the autumn semester and November 1st for the spring semester might not be processed.
You can also apply for accommodation via PKS, who manage the halls of residence close to DTU and may provide leases of more than one year. However, be warned that PKS rooms are oversubscribed and there may be a considerable waiting-list. PKS cannot guarantee accommodation.
