Danish students are not 'spoiled rotten' but perhaps are a quite a bit luckier in comparison to univeristy students in most other countries. I myself obtained my position in life by: 1) hard work and 2) state support for my university education in the form of educational grants + loans. If a Danish student's parents are wealthy and can afford it, why should they not financially support their children in their university educations (e.g. housing costs)? The government should fund (grants and/or loans) students who come from lower income families (like mine). In my opinion, this is a more fair distribution of the taxpayer's money for educating university students.
