Exchange students can apply for housing when they fill out the online application form. Read more on the housing webpage for exchange students.
The housing options are clearly outlined on our housing website for exchange students.
As a rule, AU Housing provides only one housing offer per student. This means that we cannot relocate you to another residence if you are not satisfied with your current accommodation.
Should such a situation occur, you are responsible to make your own arrangements. Please note that you cannot apply for alternative housing through the Central Housing Office in Aarhus (Kollegiekontoret) as they only allow a limited number of exchange students in their residence halls. Their quota has already been filled by AU Housing and other higher education institutions.
Even though there might be vacant residences due to students leaving Aarhus early, these rooms may not be distributed by the university and therefore cannot be given to other exchange students.

All students arriving in Denmark are covered by the Danish Health Securities Act, which offers free health care (from doctors and in hospitals). Danish Health Securities Act does not cover evacuation, repatriation, or personal liability, therefore, separate personal travel insurance is highly recommended.

Students must apply for a CPR number (Danish social security number) to have continued access to the free health care system in Denmark.
