Where should you live in Copenhagen and the surrounding areas?
The prices of both owner-occupied and rented apartments in Copenhagen are some of the highest in Denmark. It is therefore not always profitable to look for apartments for sale. Especially Copenhagen K is priced disproportionately high.
And it is also clear that the pricing is closely related to how close a given home is to the center. However, the many transport options and the generally well-functioning infrastructure in and around Copenhagen mean that you do not necessarily have to live physically close to the inner city to be able to get to and from work or study within a reasonable time frame.
It is especially the Metro, A-buses and S-trains that open up many areas. If you need to study at one of Copenhagen's many universities, for example, you can easily explore the exciting areas around Copenhagen.
Even at the metro station terminals you are with public transport still within 20 minutes reach. With the A-buses, areas such as Rødovre, outer Nørrebro and the areas around Herlev are easy to slip by. The S-train section from Sydhavn to Avedøre also offers exciting sights, which you can visit with advantage.
Some of the most sought after rental homes in Copenhagen are in these areas:
- Copenhagen V
- Copenhagen Ø
- Copenhagen N
What about sharing?
As we have already established, the prices of rental housing and rental apartments in Copenhagen are a problem, and this is especially true for students applying for student housing. Here it can often be an advantage to get together with someone else and find a rental home that is suitable as a shared home.
For example, a share-friendly rental apartment will often be 2 to 3 rooms, a kitchen, and sometimes a common living room. In this way, a monthly rent of 15,000 can suddenly become payable if you are 3 to share the price. Often, it can also provide better options than the often very small rooms and studio apartments available.
It can also be a way to get around the very long waiting times to dorm rooms, and the general lack of student housing that characterizes Copenhagen in particular, but also many of the other large student cities.
On this page we have collected a wide range of available apartments in Copenhagen. It gives you an overall overview, and the opportunity to react quickly when exactly the home that suits you appears.

What should you be aware of when signing the lease?
When you have finally found your desired home in Copenhagen, you must sign a rental contract. Of course, you have to read the contract through and make up your mind if it all fits as it should.
But in addition, as a tenant, you must also pay special attention to §11 - which is also referred to as "Special conditions".
This is because the landlord can add certain conditions that are not covered by the Tenancy Act. The Rent Act is basically always on your side, but §11 makes it possible for the landlord to tighten up the general provisions of the Rent Act.
It will, for example, be here that the landlord states that you as a tenant must be responsible for the maintenance of the home when moving out. Therefore, you are strongly advised to read your lease carefully before signing it.
