The International Office recommends new students to begin their search for housing as early as possible. When admitted to the Academy, we recommend that you ask your fellow students for advice on housing. Below you will find relevant information and housing links.
WHERE TO LOOK FOR ACCOMMODATION?
It may be difficult to find accommodation in the city center of Copenhagen, therefore we advise you to extend your search to nearby municipalities. Copenhagen's extensive public transportation makes it easy to get around in Copenhagen and the surrounding suburbs.
RDAM is situated in the Municipality of Frederiksberg, which is part of The Capital Region of Denmark (Region Hovedstaden).
See a map of Greater Copenhagen here.
A good place to start is to have a look at the different housing websites that you find below.
GROUPS ON FACEBOOK & NETWORK
The Academy periodically receives offers of available rooms from landlords. You can send an email to RDAM's Reception and inform them that you look for accommodation.
Please note that the Reception only has limited service as they are highly dependent on their external Network.
GOOD TO KNOW
Be aware of scams and make sure to receive and review a renting contract. Furthermore, you can check who owns the respective house/apartment at www.boligejer.dk.
It is a good idea to ask the landlord if the rent includes electricity, heat and water. We also recommend that you receive a copy of the house rules and a signed rental contract, which states the rental period and the terms of ending the lease.

Please be aware that many buildings in Copenhagen are more than a hundred years old. Although many have been renovated, there are still buildings and apartments with small or shared bathrooms.
