Personal Identification Number (CPR number)
In Denmark all residents are registered in the National Civil Register and have a CPR number (Personal Identification Number).
When you register at Citizen Services Aarhus, you get a 10-digit CPR number. The first six digits state your date of birth (day, month, year) and the last four numbers uniquely identify all people living in Denmark.
You must have recieved your residence certificate before you can apply for your CPR number.
The CPR number is used for registration and personal identification. It is a good idea to memorise your CPR number. You will have to use it over and over again. It is also important that you remember to give your CPR number to the student administration.
