For international students only
(All others: Jump to Activating your ITU account below)

When arriving from another country to study in Denmark you need to get yourself registered with a residence permit.

You will also need a social security number (cpr.number) in order to get MitID and e-boks and to be able to identify yourself when getting a bank account and receive medical treatment for free.

Activating your ITU account

Your ITU account (Your username + password) is used to access all the systems at the IT-University of Copenhagen.

The details connected to your account is sent out early July for MSc and early August for BSc - You will have access to your ITU account, the day after it is activated.

See below for how to activate
If you have MitID you need to activate your account using your MitID.

If you are an international student you need to activate your account without using MitID. Even if you have applied for and gotten a cpr.number, you need to follow the instructons for activating your account without MitID.
