International Accomodation Office Esbjerg


Terms and condition


There is a shortage of accommodation for young people, including students. The University therefore has made a special effort to ensure housing facilities for the international students by renting rooms in student halls of residence and private apartments.

The contracts are standard contracts with the owner’s conditions.

There will always be a 3 month notice when leaving before the finish of the planned study. If you finish on time the contract will expire on the 1st of August that specific year.

House Rules

The company/owner of the accommodation make the house rules and their employees will enforce these.

Code of Conduct

Everybody in University accommodation has the right to feel comfortable and secure and has the right to enjoy the freedom to experience life in their own way, provided this does not adversely affect others. It is inevitable that sometimes other students will have different ideas of what communal living means and occasionally these ideas may be incompatible with your own outlook or views. Sometimes you may have to compromise. It is important to try to empathise with others.
You are reminded that a breach of your tenancy agreement automatically becomes a University disciplinary matter.

Any disagreement with roommates can be discussed in the accommodation office confidently.
The University reserves the right to report to the police all allegations of illegal activities (e.g. taking drugs, acts of violence, theft).


The accommodation from the university is non-smoking. If you anyhow smoke in the apartment, all cost for paint and furniture will be deducted your deposit.

How many can we live in my accommodation?

Your accommodation is for 1 person only, unless something else is stated in the accommodation offer. You can of course have a visitor, but for living we are obligated to follow the rules from the municipality.

Force Majeure

While the University will take reasonable steps to supply heating, water, electricity and internet, the IAO cannot guarantee a continuous supply and will not be held liable for any loss, damage resulting from the failure on the part of the service provider to supply such services and which are reasonably beyond the University’s control. This clause does not intend to exclude liability for damage or loss suffered by the student which is as a result of the University’s negligence.
