Housing services

The main task of KEA Housing is to accommodate incoming international exchange students. If we have available rooms after that, we offer these out to international full degree students on our waiting list.

We do not accommodate Danish students or persons not enrolled at KEA – Copenhagen School of Design and Technology.

Incoming international exchange students automatically get an accommodation offer from KEA Housing 1-2 months before the beginning of the semester.

International full degree students can sign up for the waiting list.

Learning at KEA is to a great extent digitised which requires basic IT skills and the appropriate IT equipment for your specific programme.
