Come and join us for Orientation Day

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. We will explain the procedure in much more details at the orientation day.

The dates are as follows:

  • EU students: Tuesday 20 February 2024.
  • Non-EU and Nordic students: Tuesday January 2024.
