If you live in rented accommodation, you may be entitled to receive housing benefits. Whether or not you are eligible to receive housing benefits depends on a number of conditions, e.g.:
Citizens from EU/EEA countries can receive housing benefits on equal terms as Danish citizens. Non-EU/EEA citizens may be able to receive housing benefits depending on which residence and work permit they carry.
In general, non-EU/EEA citizens who are employed by the university or another Danish company can receive housing benefits on equal terms as Danish citizens.
The categories below all have a foundation for residence that does not allow one to receive housing benefits.
How much you can get in housing benefits depends on a number of conditions, including:
You do not need to pay tax on housing benefits.
