Housing for full degree students
You must apply for housing as soon as you have decided to study in Aarhus – before you receive your admission letter.
Business Academy Aarhus is unfortunately not able to offer housing as we do not have any dormitories. However, you can apply for housing via Student Housing Aarhus, which administers residences for students across Aarhus.
How to apply for housing
At studenthousingaarhus.com (Student Housing Aarhus) 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 housing through Student Housing Aarhus if they apply early enough. You can apply up to 6 months before the study start.
Please note that your application has to be renewed each month and Student Housing Aarhus requires you to be 18 years old when the accommodation contract needs to be signed.
All new international students moving to Aarhus for the autumn semester are guaranteed housing.

Other long-term housing
There is also the possibility of renting a room or a flat on your own.

However, beware of swindlers and never make any payment before physically viewing the accommodation and signing a legal contract. Make sure that you carefully read the contract’s terms.
Most landlords will require a deposit. Normally, you must pay a 1-month deposit for a room and a 3-month deposit for a flat. Ask for a separate receipt and do not pay cash. A bank transfer can be traced in the case of fraud.
And remember: If the offer sounds too good to be true – it probably is!
If your long-term housing 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.

Do you need any help?
The best advice you can probably get is from our current students, so we would advise joining the international facebook group and ask any questions there.
