Student accommodation in Denmark

Most Danish universities do not offer on-campus accommodation and, instead, most students choose to live close by either in the university town or just outside it. As student accommodation can be difficult to find in Denmark once the term has started, it’s a good idea to begin looking for accommodation a couple of months before the term starts.


Some Danish universities offer off-campus Halls of Residence which are reasonably affordable. Living here is a great way to meet other students and make loads of friends.

Alternatively, you could choose to live in private accommodation where you could rent a flat or house by yourself or with friends. If you decide to do this, make sure you do your research and find out what bills are included in the rent and what the contract does or do not allow you to do.

Sometimes, private accommodation is not furnished, so find this out before you sign a contract and, if not, make sure you budget for buying furniture for when you live there.
