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 the State Administration - see how you apply for an EU registration certificate here. You can find a declation for study activity here and the application form here. Please note that the State Administration has special opening hours for students.

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:

  • Friday 1 February 2019 from 15.00-17.00
  • Thursday 7 February 2019 from 16.00-18.00

This means that you should not make an appointment, but show up within these hours. From 28 January to 8 February 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.

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