Copenhagen Transportation Coverage

DIS provides transportation coverage for all students to DIS activities, as well as a choice of two Housing-to-DIS transportation options for students living in DIS housing, with the exception of those who live within walking distance from DIS.

DIS requires all students studying in Copenhagen to use the DSB app for transportation tickets. The app will allow you to purchase and use tickets across public transportation options throughout Denmark so that DIS will be invoiced for the following:

Your single tickets on public transportation to:

  • The Copenhagen Airport or Central Station when traveling for Study Tour
  • Field Studies
  • Practicums, external university courses, or other courses held offsite from DIS
  • All activities officially hosted by DIS, including academic and social events listed in the Events Calendar

Before your summer session begins, DIS will send you information about downloading the DSB app so that you can get started.

Additional Commuter Coverage: Housing-to-DIS Transportation Options

If your housing site is located outside of walking distance to DIS, you will be offered a choice between two Housing-to-DIS Transportation Options that will cover your commute from your housing to DIS:

  • A Commuter Card that provides unlimited trips between your housing and DIS on public transportation
  • A Summer Bike from a trusted bike rental agency
