Heating information

In Denmark, it is normal to wait until mid-later October to turn on the heat, in order to preserve energy and think more sustainably. However, it is the individual building owners who decide exactly when the heat is turned on, which is normally around the Autumn holiday or in some cases, depending on the temperature outside. Your residence handbook might give more information on when the heating is turned on in your accommodation. 

Please also note that your room/apartment is not meant to be so warm that you can walk around in shorts and T-shirts during the autumn and winter months. Rather, most Danes wear long pants, sweaters and warm socks – this is a great way to participate in the Danish Hygge.
