Who and when can we help?

  • CBS primarily offers assistance in finding accommodation for incoming exchange students and Full Time MBA students during the autumn and spring and CBS Summer University students during the summer.
  • If we have spare rooms (primarily in the spring and summer), we can offer aid to international Freemovers as well.
  • CBS Housing Team does not guarantee accommodation for any of CBS's students.

See your student category for help:

Exchange student 

CBS welcomes many international exchange students each semester and we are happy to help them in finding accommodation.
Housing in Copenhagen is difficult to find and expensive. The CBS housing Team has access to 6 student residences or dorms. See Student Residences.  

There is no guarantee that you will get your first priority. In addition, in some semesters there are not enough rooms in Student Residences for all students, so some will be living in private housing. To help us find a solution that will be optimal for you, please take some time to explore the different housing options which you will find on this website.

CBS Summer University students
The housing application process will begin in the second half of April for registered exchange students. Students who have been admitted to the CBS Summer University Programme will receive an email inviting them to apply for housing. The email will be sent to the email address supplied by the student. CBS email addresses are not required for CBS Summer University Housing. There is no possibility of applying before the link is received.
CBS Full Time MBA Student
This section applies only to international students enrolled in the CBS Full Time MBA Program. Students pursuing a course of MBA study at their home university should refer to the sections Exchange Students or International Degree Students.

Housing for CBS MBA students is assigned on a first come, first served basis for as long as rooms are available.

Application and allocation takes place via the Housing Team ( You will be asked to complete an application after which the CBS Housing Team will allocate you to a room in one of the dorms mentioned below.

Accommodation available to International CBS students in the full time MBA program is the 4th floor at Porcelænshaven dorm.
You will be able to apply for housing together with exchange students. 
International Full-Degree Student
The Housing Team cannot assist international full-degree students with accommodation. We strongly recommend that you actively search for housing on your own.
