Students at the University of Copenhagen or Roskilde

If you are a student at the University of Copenhagen or Roskilde you are entitled to remote access privileges. You will have to register as a user in REX.
Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for your remote access to be activated.

You get remote access via REX. Use your social security number (10 digits without hyphen) as user your ID along with your chosen password.

Guest students registered at the University of Copenhagen with a 10-digits student number (pseudo CPR) can get remote access, if the number is used for registering as a new user in REX. If you have registered as a user with your Social Security number, send your pseudo CPR to the library.

Help to find pseudo CPR

If you have problems registering as a user in REX, or you have forgotten your password, please contact the library.
