Opening Hours for Students

How to get a CPR number as an international student

We cooperate with 31 municipalities (kommuner): if you live in one of these or in the Municipality of Copenhagen (Københavns Kommune), you can register for a CPR number through International House.

EU students (except Nordic students): Before you can apply for a CPR number, you must apply for an EU registration certificate at SIRI EU. See how you apply for an EU registration certificate here - please note that SIRI EU has special opening hours for students. You can find a declaration for study activity here and the application form here.

When you have all the necessary documents, you must complete the online application for a CPR number - apply for a CPR number here.

Once your application is approved, you will receive an email with an invitation to collect your CPR number at International House during our special opening hours for students:

  • Tuesday 3 September 2019 from 16.00-18.00
  • Wednesday 11 September 2019 from 16.00-18.00

This means that you should not make an appointment, but show up within these hours. From 2 September to 13 September 2019, you will not be able to collect your CPR number during normal opening hours.

It is important that you bring your passport/national ID. Bring other relevant documents if you have been instructed to do so in the invitation email.

Please be aware that you must have moved in to your accommodation before you can collect your CPR number.
