Q: What is the role of Cphbusiness’ administration and international office?

A: They are only responsible for confirming that the applicants are active students.

Q: Why will there be a deduction of 150 dkk per month from my deposit?

A: We are renovating/painting the rooms due to wear and tear every 2-3 years depending on the duration of the stay of the resident. The longer you stay in the room the likelier it will be to need to be painted after you leave. We are trying to increase the quality and the standard of the rooms and that is why we aim to give a newly painted room for everyone that moves in. So these 150 dkk go to a separate account that will be used to paint the room upon leaving. You will not be required to pay any additional amount if the room's condition is a result of normal circumstances. However, if you make holes in the walls, break a window or a sink or the alike then additional reduction will be made from your deposit to cover these costs.

Q: What do I get when I move in?


○ key for your door (and used for the shared entrance door leading to the room)

○ Smaller key for the letter box

○ ID access card that is used for entering the residence as well as for the washing machines

Piece of paper with your log in credentials for the washing machines system.

Q: I have applied for a room but I have not hear anything from the administration for a couple of days now, when will I get a room?

A: Applying for a room does not guarantee you a place at the dorm. We are focusing on providing deserving students with long term accommodation (1.5-2 years).
