Finding a room in Copenhagen is sore subject. With hundreds of people moving to the Danish capital every month, there’s a lack of accommodation that doesn’t help at all.Rules to find an accommodation in Copenhagen: do not have too high standards and do not expect long-term.
The average price for a room in a shared apartment varies from 4000-8000kr/month (540-1.075€) depending on a lot of factors (area, bills included, size of the room, etc.) Also remember that you will often have to pay a huge deposit before moving in.You might be lucky and find something long-term right away, but do not expect that to be easy. I moved here on the 7th of July, and on the 01st of March I will have to move for the 3rd time (Lucky enough, in a long-term studio apartment!)
Where to find an accommodation:
- You can search for accommodation on websites like boligportal, dba.dk and findroommate.dk.Unfortunately, these websites always require the payment of an initial fee that will let you contact landlords for a few days, and than withdraw a monthly fee from your creditcard each month. They are quite expensive and, as my experience taught me, not really reliable.
- Facebook is your crack of gold at the rainbow’s end (And where I found 2 of my 3 different rooms here in Copenhagen)Here’s the list of all the Facebook groups that I used:
