Get your CPR number and residence document

When arriving in Aarhus, you must be issued with a CPR number (only for students living in the municipality of Aarhus) and a EU residence document (only for EU/EEA students).

What you need to do depends on when you arrive in Denmark. Please read and follow the procedure carefully.

Arrive in Denmark earlier than 6 weeks before study start

If you arrive in Denmark more than 6 weeks before semester start, you will need to arrange these permits yourself and make your own appointment: get more information on getting the right permits yourself.

Arrive in Denmark later than 6 weeks before study start

If you arrive later than 6 weeks before semester start, you will be invited to partake in a “CPR day” at Dokk1. Here you can apply for both CPR number and residence permit at the same time and the process will be administered faster.

As a Nordic student, you must follow the procedure from the Citizen Service (find link further down the section) to:

  1. Apply for a CPR number (Danish Social Security number) online – once you have a confirmed housing offer in the municipality of Aarhus)
  2. Book an appointment to finish your registrations in person with Citizen Service at Dokk1 once you have applied for a CPR number online. See available dates:

    30 August 2022
    8 September 2022

It is important that you follow the registration process carefully and bring all the required documents to Dokk1.

Important notice for EU/EEA and Swiss students: If you are unable to appear in person at Dokk1 on the dates above you must follow the normal procedure to acquire an EU residence document and a CPR-number, which is considerably more time consuming. 

As a student from outside the EU/EEA you must follow the procedure from the Citizen Service (find link further down the section) to:

  1. Apply for a CPR number (Danish Social Security number) online – once you have a confirmed housing offer in the municipality of Aarhus) and a residence permit.
