Applying for Housing as an Exchange Student
As a new exchange student at Aarhus University, you have the option to apply for housing through the university or search for other housing options on your own.
The housing application is integrated into the admission application process, and when you complete your admission application, you will be asked if you would like to apply for housing through the university.
If you choose to apply for housing through Aarhus University, you can find information about the application process below. However, please note that AU Housing does not provide a housing guarantee, so it is advisable to explore other housing options as well.
Additionally, it is important to note that you will only receive one housing offer from AU Housing at the most.
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, chair, lamp and basic kitchen utensils. Duvets, pillows and bed linen are not provided. Other furniture, equipment and appliances will not be provided. You will receive maximum one housing offer from AU Housing. You can decline the housing offer and look for other options instead. It is not possible to recieve a new housing offer from AU Housing if you want to move during the semester.
