Student accommodation, flats and rooms for rent in Copenhagen

If your next destination is Copenhagen we recommend that you pay close attention to the following post in which we are going to tell you how to find student accommodation in the city.

To begin, you must keep two things in mind. First, we are talking about a quite expensive city, something that you could guess as it is the capital of Denmark. Second, the accommodation offer is not as wide as in other cities and finding a flat or room for rent can be much more complicated than in other cases.

But don't worry because through our Erasmus Play search engine you will find all the information you need. You will be able to access accommodation of all kinds and at the best price, in addition to being sure that they are verified flats, apartments and rooms, to avoid all kinds of fraud that occur on the internet.

Student apartments for rent in Copenhagen

Finding a student apartment for rent in Copenhagen at a good price is quite complicated as the demand is very high and the prices are not affordable for all budgets.

To find cheaper accommodation in Copenhagen we are going to have to pull the old trick of moving away from the centre, locating ourselves on the periphery to save on monthly rental expenses.

The price of student rental apartments in Copenhagen is varied. Prices can be between € 900 and € 1500 per month. These prices can even increase depending on the location. The positive point is that if you are looking for roommates, this expense is distributed among those who live in that apartment.

In the Erasmus Play search engine, we have included a map of the area so that you know where each flat, studio or apartment on the search engine is located and thus be able to choose the one that best suits your needs.

Student room for rent in Copenhagen

The supply of rooms for rent for students in Copenhagen is not much better, the existing demand for this type of accommodation being very high. In part, it is understandable since, as we have mentioned before, private apartments are much more expensive than in other cities.

In this case, we can say that a room for rent for students in Copenhagen can be around € 500-800 per month. In the best-case scenario, you can find cheaper accommodation even if that means moving a bit away from the centre.

You have to know that the demand for rooms for rent in Copenhagen is very high, so we recommend that you look ahead to find an accommodation according to your needs that has a good price.

Student accommodation in Copenhagen

To find student accommodation in Copenhagen at a good price we will have to take into account its location. Downtown areas are considerably more expensive and not all students can afford a room or a flat in these areas.

Regardless of this, we are going to give you the information you need about some neighbourhoods where you can stay during your study or work trip in Copenhagen. The final decision is yours, since only you know what you need, if you want to be close to one side or the other, if you prefer a quiet area with more atmosphere, etc.

Apartments for rent in Amager

For students, Amager is an ideal location to search for apartments for rent in Copenhagen as the university is located in this area. Also, it is a middle-class neighbourhood that is located between the airport and the centre of Copenhagen. Prices are cheaper in this area and it is very well connected to the rest of the city.

Apartments in Osterbro

The residential neighbourhood of Osterbro is much more expensive than the previous one but it is located in a very well connected place by both the metro and buses. The rental cost is medium-high as it is a neighbourhood where many families and older people live, which makes it a quiet place to live.

Rooms for rent in Vesterbro

Vesterbro was formerly a working-class neighbourhood that has been transformed into the hipster neighbourhood of Copenhagen. This has led many students and young people to want to live in this place. In this area is the Istegade red-light district, in which we do not recommend living.

Erasmus accommodation in Indre By

The well-known centre of Copenhagen is called Indre By and the price in this area is much higher. Of course, if you can afford it, it is an ideal place to live, with all services nearby and connected to the rest of the city by public transport. 

University residence in Copenhagen

It is an advisable option if you are one of those who does not like to worry too much about things about housing. Living in a residence makes things easier for you, however, you will also have less freedom. The problem with the offer is the same, there are many annual requests for these residences and running out of space can cause you to have to look for a last-minute apartment, leaving the most expensive.

We recommend that you search early and always compare all the options available in Copenhagen, so you can make sure you have chosen the best one.
