Apply for a dorm room through AU

AU Housing disposes of a limited number of  single rooms (one person only) in dormitory style buildings available to arriving international postdocs and staff members. The rooms are all furnished, have shared kitchen facilities and are available either with or without private bathrooms. The rooms are available for temporary accommodation (max. 12 months) only, and are meant for you to be able to settle down and familiarize yourself with Aarhus while looking for a more permanent accommodation solution. 

Application tips

  • It is always possible to shorten a lease at these dorms with due notice (one month to the 1st) but it is not possible to extend a lease. Consider this when you fill in your application form.
  • Please be aware that we receive many housing applications and often have very few vacant rooms. It means that you might receive a housing offer starting before or after the date you have applied for or no housing offer at all. In case that you need short term accommodation before or after your lease please find some options here. Due to limited ressources we are able to send one housing offer per applicant only. Before declining a housing offer you should therefore be prepared to start the house hunting process yourself. Please find some suggestions here.

Important information about accommodation at a dormitory

  • Minimum stay is one month. It is not possible to pay per night and the minimum price is therefore one months’ rent. Do you need accommodation for less than one month, please book a room at a guesthouse, hostel or hotel.
  • Leases start on the 1st of the month and end on the last day of the month.
  • You can move in after 3pm on the 1st, unless the 1st is a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday. In that case you can move in on the following Monday.
  • You are responsible for the cleaning of your room and common areas (kitchen).
  • You must respect the house rules and participate in the public duties listed there.
  • The dormitory doesn’t have permanent staff. Within office hours (weekdays only) you can contact the janitor or AU Housing at housing@au.dk. There is no staff present outside these hours.
