EU residence document
The EU residence document is proof that that you meet the conditions for residence under EU legislation and therefore have the right to reside and study in Denmark.

CPR Number
In Denmark each person has a personal registration number, which is called a CPR number. CPR stands for Central Person Register.
The CPR number is essential in relation to any contact with the Danish authorities and especially in connection to tax and social security issues.
The CPR-number gives you the right to use the Danish health care system.
