Student Accommodation

You must apply for accommodation as soon as you have decided to study in Aarhus – before you receive you admission letter.

Business Academy Aarhus is unfortunately not able to offer accommodation as we do not have any dormitories. However, you can apply for accommodation via Student Housing Aarhus, which administers residences for students across Aarhus.

How to apply for accommodation 

At you will find instructions in English on how to apply for a room, as well as a list of dormitories. These are listed according to town areas and room types (single, couple, couple with children).

You should apply long before you get to Aarhus - the demand is extremely high and the number of places is limited. The waiting times are also usually long, but most students are able to find accommodation through Student Housing Aarhus if they apply early enough. You can apply up to 6 months before study start.

Please note that your application has to be renewed each month.

Housing guarantee 

All new international students, moving to Aarhus, are guaranteed housing.

Short-term accommodation

If your long-term accommodation is not available when you arrive in Aarhus, there are several options for short-term stays. Please note, however, that these are rather expensive compared to the monthly rent of a student dormitory room.
