Tuition, Fees, Housing, and Other Costs
SStudents pay Dartmouth tuition to Dartmouth for the term. Housing costs are paid to the University of Copenhagen. Housing costs for Dartmouth students in Copenhagen are variable and may exceed what they would be at Dartmouth. Check the website below for current estimates of housing and living costs. Students pay for their own food and do their own food shopping and cooking so, depending on your culinary skills and tastes, costs for food will vary. It is important to remember that exchange rates fluctuate. This means that the cost in U.S. dollars for housing, food, public transportation and other tings may vary. Copenhagen is an expensive place to live even though the dollar is strong vis-à-vis the Danish krone right now. Your expenses will probably be higher than they would be at Dartmouth for a term. As of June 2019, the University of Copenhagen estimates that living expenses will be approximately as follows (current exchange rate is $1.00 = 6.6 DKK). Some students have reported that these estimates are low; it depends on your lifestyle:
|Local transportation/Month (if you travel daily)||$57-151||(380-1,000 DKK)|
|Pocket money/Month||$302||(2,000 DKK)|
|Buying a used bicycle||$121-226||(800-1,500 DKK)|
