AU Housing assists international Summer University students finding a place to stay during the course.
Aarhus University does not own students' residences. However, AU Housing has an agreement with a Central Student Housing organisation and with private landlords, so we can offer these two types of accommodation in Aarhus:
Student residences - the most common is single corridor rooms with shared kitchen and bathroom, where you will live with Danish and other international summer university students or shared 2 room’s apartment, where you share kitchen/bathroom with a summer university student.
Shared facility houses - typically houses with 6-12 single rooms with shared kitchens and bathrooms, where you will live with international summer university students only.
Unfortunately it is not possible for you to choose which type of accommodation you prefer. AU Housing allocates accommodation depending on number of participants at the same course, etc. However you are welcome to note your preferences in your housing application and we will do our best to take in to consideration.
All rooms in student residences or shared facility houses are furnished; single rooms are situated within a distance of max. 7 km from the campus. All rooms have access to a kitchen and bathroom (some rooms have private bathrooms, but this can’t be guaranteed). Rooms are furnished with bed, table, chair, lamp and wardrobe or alike.
No meals are included. You will have access to the kitchen in your accommodation, which is equipped with basic kitchenware and equipment for preparing meals. There are numerous canteens located on Aarhus University campus locations where you can purchased meals during daytime hours.
The rent includes utilities (heating, water and electricity) and internet access. Internet connection is limited to use for study purposes, email or Skype, but not for streaming.
Duvet, pillow and bedlinen are provided. You will receive them together with the key to your room upon arrival. Remember to bring towels yourself.
Venue outside Aarhus. AU Summer University courses are mainly held at Campus Aarhus. However some courses are placed outside Aarhus due to the fact that the content of the courses is related to a sudden location/need of material or laboratory. Please look at each courses page for the venue of the course and how to book housing at the venue.

If the duration of your summer university programme doesn’t match the housing period exactly, you can consider whether a reservation at a hostel or a combination of hostel/student residence is a cheaper option. When you consider the housing period remember, that some final exams will be held online. It is not neccesary for you to be in Denmark in order to take the online exam. Look for more information in the course catalogue.
