Conditions of the AU Housing service

The conditions of the AU Housing service for tuition-paying students are as follows:

  • your present accommodation is outside Denmark and you have not lived in Denmark  for more than 3 months previously
  • you must submit your application before the specified deadlines (autumn term: 1st May, spring term: 1st November.)
  • a booking fee of 600 DKK will be charged when accepting a housing offer from AU Housing (you can decline a housing offer free of charge) 
  • you must accept the terms and conditions of the AU Housing service
  • you must be able to pay the first months' rent with a credit card when you receive the housing offer
  • you must apply for a single room (unfortunately double rooms are scarce and we recommend couples to contact housing@au.dk as early as possible for updated housing options.)
  • you have to be aware that AU Housing offers temporary accommodation only (6-12 months) and in case you need accommodation for longer, you will be expected to find the next accommodation yourself.
