Apply for housing as exchange student
As a new exchange student to Aarhus University campus Herning, you can apply for housing through AU and/or you can look for housing options yourself.
The housing application is an integrated part of the admission application process. When you fill in your admission application you will be asked whether you want to apply for housing through AU or not.
If you wish to apply for housing through AU, please find information about the application process below.
Unfortunately, AU Housing doesn't offer a housing guarantee. Therefore, you should also look for other housing options.
1. Until 14 days after the date you accepted your housing offer, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to cancel your contract, and we will refund you the paid rent and booking fee.
2. After the 14 days and until 6 weeks before your leasing contract starts, you can cancel your lease by sending an email to email@example.com and we will refund you the paid rent but not the booking fee.
3. Hereafter the normal notice of termination deadlines for your lease apply. You find the deadlines here.
4. If you - for any reason out of your control - want to cancel your housing reservation shortly before your housing contract starts or has already started, you must do so within the normal termination deadlines and pay your rent until you with due notice terminate your contract. This means that also in the case you have not been able to move into your accommodation, you are liable to pay your rent. We recommend that you regularly keep us updated on your situation, and we will advise you in the best way possible to minimize your costs.
Your leasing contract starts on the day stated in your housing offer, and normally you can pick up your key from that date (or any day hereafter) at the Reception at AU Herning (AU HE). If it happens that your lease starts on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday, you can't pick up your key until the first weekday hereafter. You need to arrange and pay for short term accommodation until then yourself.
You can pick up your key and leasing contract at the Reception, BTECH, Birk Centerpark 15, 7400 Herning. Office hours Monday-Thursday from 8am to 2pm, Friday from 8am to 12.30noon. However, we always suggest that you contact Heidi Maibritt Trampedach Larsen - firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment for picking up your keys and leasing contract. If you arrive outside office hours you need to arrange short term accommodation yourself.
You have to fill in the moving in checklist immediately after having moved in. As this might determine how much of your deposit you will get back, you are asked to complete the report on your first day. Complaints should immediately be addressed to Heidi Maibritt Trampedach Larsen - email@example.com including if you notice any problems with the furniture or you have complaints regarding the cleaning of your room.
AU Housing strongly recommends that you take out home contents insurance that will cover your loss in case of burglary, fire etc. AU does not cover any losses.
