Guidelines: what to expect from your dormitory?


The dormitories have various standards as Student Housing Aarhus uses different buildings for student housing. The biggest student dormitories (where you have the best chance of actually getting a room) are Skjoldhøjkollegiet and Ravnsbjergkollegiet, which also offer furnished rooms.


The prices for student accommodation vary according to the type of room, to the location and to other amenities. Usually, the rent for a single room ranges from 2,300 to 3,600 DKK per month. The rent has to be paid in advance, at the beginning of each month.


A deposit is neccessary when moving into a new room. This amount varies (it is usually higher for private accommodation), but it often amounts to the equivalent of 3 months’ rent.

What to bring

Even if you get one of the furnished student rooms, you will need to bring a blanket/duvet and bed sheets. Cutlery and dishes may be available in the common kitchens, as well as cooking utensils.
