We recommend new students to begin their search for housing as soon as possible. RDAM is situated in the municipality of Frederiksberg which is part of Greater Copenhagen Area (find map below). 

Where to start?

A good place to start is to apply at the central administration of dormitories in Copenhagen: . Other options are listed below.

Students are also welcome to contact our reception who can give advice on housing: (attn: "housing"). Note that we have only limited services as we are highly dependent on our external network of contacts.

How to find housing in Copenhagen?

We recommend that you not limit your search to Copenhagen but also to search in nearby municipalities, such as Hvidovre, Brønshøj, Vanløse, Lyngby and Gentofte. You can easily go to Copenhagen by public transportation from these places.


We recommend that you join our Facebook Group for RDAM Students. Here you can get advices from your fellow students or maybe find roommates.

Good to Know

It is a good idea to ask the landlord the rent includes electricity, heat and water. Furthermore, it is recommended to be sure of the house rules and to get a signed housing contract, fx a document that provides 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 some have been renovated, however, many buildings and apartments contain small or shared bathrooms.
