Our Housing & Student Affairs office is located just next to DIS Copenhagen classrooms, providing accessible support services to you. This department is staffed with trained employees who are on-site and can assist you in any next steps to move forward when you have a non-academic issue or question. For academic concerns, find DIS Academic Resources here.

DIS Student Affairs Teams

The Student Affairs staff can assist with general inquiries regarding non-academic information such as Residence Permit or CPR info, the Visiting Host Program, events and activities, the DIS phone plan, the insurance plan, and more.

DIS Housing Teams

Where you live is one of the most important aspects of your time abroad and can be the basis for rich personal growth. Nevertheless, living in a foreign country can also be challenging. This is why we offer you support when it comes to your housing.

If you live in a Residential Community, Living & Learning Community, or Kollegium, you likely have a Social & Residential Advisor (SRA) that you can contact for practical, social, and emotional support. All students can reach out to DIS housing coordinators, who are full-time staff trained to support and empower you when undergoing housing-related challenges. Conversations with DIS housing coordinators are private, but not confidential.

To book an appointment with a housing coordinator, email:

  • sharedhousing@dis.dk (if living in a Kollegium, Living & Learning Community, Residential Community, or a Folkehøjskole)
  • host@dis.dk (if living in a Homestay or a Rented Room)

Include a brief description of what you would like to talk about and when you are free. A housing coordinator will respond to your request within one business day.

DIS Care Team

Given the transitions, adjustments, and adaption you go through while studying abroad, it is important that you have support. As a current student at DIS Copenhagen, our Care Team is trained to help you in times of difficulty through support services available during your time at DIS.

Members of the Care Team are Housing and Student Affairs administrative staff at DIS – not doctors or counselors. If a case demands professional assistance, the Care Team will advise you on how to see appropriate medical professionals.

To book an appointment with the Care Team, email care@dis.dk. Include a brief description of what you would like to discuss and when you are free. Someone will respond to your request within one business day.

Conversations with the Care Team are private, but not confidential. Utilizing the Care Team serves as your consent to processing of the information you choose to share with the Care Team, which may include sharing of information with individuals outside of DIS. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions about what this means before and throughout your conversations with the Care Team.

Referral to an External Provider

If necessary, DIS is able to refer you to an outside affiliated psychologist/psychiatrist or assist you in accessing other resources. In some case, DIS insurance will be able to cover these referrals. If you decide to find your own provider, DIS can share a list of therapists or doctors who have previously worked with DIS students.

If the Care Team refers you to a trained psychologist/psychiatrist at a local clinic, and you do not show up for the scheduled appointment or fail to cancel 24 hours in advance, you will be charged 1,000 DKK.

Though the Care Team can assist you in navigating the health care system, you do not need to work through the team to see a doctor. Find details on seeing a doctor, going to the hospital, or locating a pharmacy here.
