Arriving and living in Aarhus

We recommend that you arrive in Aarhus at least a few days (and preferably more) before beginning your studies. This will give you time to settle in and to get acquainted with the city before starting classes. A buddy will meet with you, once you arrive in Aarhus and take you to your dormitory.
