As an international student, you can apply for a furnished accommodation in Aalborg, only after you have received a letter of admission or a conditional admission letter. Danish students must apply at the AKU.
Please note that you are only entitled to accommodation via the International Accommodation Office if you enrol in courses and participate as an active student at the University of Aalborg. We recommend you to apply as soon as possible, as we only have a fixed amount of accommodation, and we cannot guarantee an accommodation for all students.
For your application to be processed you must pay a part of the full deposit, DKK 2,000 ($345 or 270 euro) in advance along with your application for accommodation. For refunding the pre-paid deposit please see here.
All rooms are private.
To see more go to list of accommodation. Please note you cannot choose the accommodation but you can state your wishes which we will try to meet.
Must be paid with credit card.
The prepaid deposit is a part of you housing deposit, and is deducted the first rent & deposit payment. You will not be allocated without a prepaid deposit.
If you have cancelled the accommodation offer within 14 days, you will have the prepaid deposit refunded in March or September. If you have paid the prepaid deposit by credit card, it will be refunded to the card which was used on the payment. Pre-paid deposit will be refunded along with the housing deposit in March or September - or sooner if possible.
If you have been away on an internship/traineeship, you need to reapply, and thus pay the deposit again. There is no guarantee for the same accommodation, we will do our best to meet your wishes according to the application form.
There is no deadline for applying in Aalborg. The International Accommodation Office works by the principle of "first come - first served". This means there is no housing guarantee. In case the accommodation office cannot offer you an accommodation, you will receive an email and guidance how to apply elsewhere and how to get back the prepaid deposit.
We cannot offer short-term, the rentals are 6 months´ from the 1 February to the 1 August and the 1 August to the 1 February.
If you are in need for a shorter period, you can find many different kind of accommodation on such as B&B, hostels and much more on Visit Aalborgs webpage.
If you have a disability, wish to accommodate close to a friend or a particular area etc. It is important to state that in the application form. We will do our best to meet your requirements though no guarantee is given.
Please note, you can have your classes in many different locations. There is main campus in the east and city campus in the centre. You must write in the application form, if you wish a certain area. You can see descriptions and locations under the list of accommodation.
