Apply for housing as exchange student
As a new exchange student to Aarhus University, you can apply for housing through AU and/or you can look for other 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.
Students will be placed in student dorms, shared-facilities houses or offered a room to sublet from a private landlord. Read more about these types of housing here. The rooms are located around the city and we are not able to guarantee a specific location of your accommodation. In most cases you can expect a maximum of 30 minutes travel time to campus. Rooms will be furnished with basic furniture only: bed, table, study chair, lamp and basic kitchen utensils. Duvets, pillows and bed linen are not provided. Other furniture, equipment and appliances will not be provided.
