Top tips in finding a place to stay

Here are our best five advices for new international students looking for a place to stay in Aarhus.

Apply for a room in a student dorm

  • Send in your application to Student Housing Aarhus 6 months before you start at Aarhus University.
  • You can send in your application without a confirmation of enrolment or any other documentation (you will need it later, but you can gain seniority at the waiting list without it.)
  • Renew your application every month. VERY IMPORTANT.
  • Apply for a room from 1 June or 1 July instead of 1 August or 1 September.

Use the Housing Guarantee provided by the Municipality of Aarhus

  • You can subscribe to the housing guarantee between 1.2.-15.8. Read more here.

Look for rooms outside the campus area.

  • Most students in Aarhus don't live close to campus. With the use of www.journeyplanner.dk you will find, that you can easily commute to/from campus.

Don't arrive without having a place to stay

  • In many countries, it is a tradition that students go to the university cities and find a room with a private landlord within the first weeks. This tradition doesn't exist in Aarhus. It is more or less impossible to find a room in Aarhus in August and September, and we advice against taking the chance.

Don't be too critical

  • Everybody wants a cheap room in the city center. As you compete with thousands of other students about these rooms, we recommend that you set your expectations low, so you won't be disappointed. You may find that the location of your accommodation is not that important after all.
