Living and studying in Copenhagen

On the university's website for international students www.studies.ku.dk you can find all the information you need about living and studying in Copenhagen as for example information about housing, residence permit and insurance, health and safety, costs, money and banking etc. Visit also the website Study in Denmark for more information on studying and living in Denmark. 

Getting to and from the faculty
The Faculty of Theology is located in central Copenhagen, Købmagergade 44-46.

From Copenhagen Airport it is possible to take the Metro to Nørreport Station, which is only approx. 5 minutes walk from the Faculty down the pedestrian street "Købmagergade".

The Metro runs day and night. At rush hours (between 7-10 and 15-18) the intervals between departures are four minutes. Outside rush hours the intervals are six minutes. At night the intervals are 15-20 minutes. More information can be found at The Copenhagen Metro's website

The S-train also runs to and from Nørreport Station, but is not connected to Copenhagen Airport.

On krak.dk  you can find a map of our location. The map shows "Nørreport Station"; "Købmagergade" where the Faculty is located near "Rundetårn" (the round tower); and "Frue Plads" where the University Main Building is located.

You enter the building through the gateway with the sign "Det Teologiske Fakultet" in Købmagergade 46. Once inside the building you will find the Student Hub on the ground floor, where also the administration is situated. Teaching is taking place on first, second, third or fourth floor.

Study facilities
The faculty's libraries are housing study facilities with plugs for laptops and wireless internet network. In order to log in to the computers in our libraries (and anywhere else in the faculty) you must obtain a user-id and password at the Student Hub at the ground floor. To gain access to our student computers and printers in the adjacent building you have to register in the Student Hub.

Wireless network 
To access the wireless network you should follow the instructions given at the website  Further help is given at our IT-department, ground floor room 047.

Photocopies and prints

Our photocopiers and printers are located in the libraries on the first, second and third floor. You can only print from the student computers in the libraries or from the computers in the student computer room (ground floor).

To access our photocopier, printer and student computers you need a special user-id (username) and a password from the Student Hub (ground floor). The user-id (username) can not be changed but you can change your password (ask in the Student Hub how to do so).

You have to pay online to a print and photocopy account before you can photocopy or print. Please read here for instructions for WebPay.

Student ID
All international guest- and exchange students and international full degree students will receive a Danish Student ID number by post mail. You need this number the first time you access KUnet. All international full degree students will have to apply for a CPR-number (Social Security number) and the CPR-number will replace the Student ID number - it is therefor important that international full degree students hand in their CPR-number to the Exam administration. 

KUnet (Campus Net)
Our campus net is called KUnet. Through KUnet students have their university email accounts, access to Absalon, and print of transcripts. To access KUnet you need a KU-username. To activate your KU-username you must use your student ID and your pin code (sent to you) and follow the instructions

  • Go to http://www.kunet.dk/
  • Click on the British flag for English
  • Click on the link "First time you log in". This will open a new page. 
  • Enter your student ID in "PERSON NUMBER" and pin code in "PIN CODE/CARD NO."
  • Now you will see your KU-Username. It is important that you remember your KU-Username.
  • Enter a password
  • Enter your personal contact information (mobile phone and private email address - not your KU email address). If you forget your password, you can receive a new password by text and/or email.
  • Now you can log in to KUnet with your KU-Username.

You can find an instruction video on how to activate your KU-username and access KUnet and Absalon here

The username you receive consists of three random consonants followed by a three-digit number, e.g. "bdg123". Your KU Username cannot be changed. Visit also http://intranetguide.ku.dk/english/username/

Pin code 
You will receive a pin code by mail. This code is used to activate the KU-username and for access to Absalon and together with your Student ID-card for access to buildings etc. Please ask at the Students Hub, ground floor, if you have any problems with your pin code.

Student ID-card

International guest and exchange students will have to pick up their student ID-cards at the International office in Fiolstræde http://studies.ku.dk/admission/Student_ID_and_Email/. Full degree students will receive the card by post mail to their home address. You need your student card and pin code to enter the library and to enter the university areas at certain hours during the afternoon and night.
