Housing application via the IC

The housing application process consists of the following steps:

  • Housing applicants must set up an account on AU's self-service system.
  • When the applicant is logged on to the self-service system, they must fill out the relevant housing application form. 
  • The applicant's contact person or supervisor at AU will then receive an email, which requests them to verify via a link that the applicant is a guest or employee at AU.
  • After the contact person has responded to the email, the housing applicant will receive a confirmation email from the contact person. This will allow the applicant to complete their housing application and submit it to the International Housing Office via the self-service system.
  • The International Housing Office will then try to find accommodation, and eventually a housing offer to the applicant. The applicant can either accept or reject this offer.
  • If the applicant wishes to accept the housing offer, then they must pay the first month's rent via a 'Dibs' payment system. This system requires an applicant to have a credit card. The security deposit will only be charged later on, together with the second month's rent (usually after arrival).
  • In the event that the applicant's rent and/or deposit is to be paid by the institute or others, you are kindly asked to contact as early as possible.
  • The International Centre is open on weekdays 10am-2pm. The IC doesn't provide any welcome service or handing out of keys outside opening hours. Do your guest arrive outside opening hours you are welcome to collect the key on behalf of the guest.
  • Please notice, that all rooms are furnished with basic furniture only (bed, table, chair, lamp) and kitchen equipment (plate, cutlery, glas, pot and pan.) Aarhus University does NOT provide additional furniture, duvets, pillows, blankets or towels.

Via the International Housing Office's main page, you can find information about the AU housing service for the various target groups.
