Learn about how to get accommodation when moving to Denmark

Housing in Aalborg

Aalborg is located in Northern Denmark. It is a very popular city amongst students, and it is therefore important to proceed with applying for accommodation as soon as you have decided to study in Denmark.

It is relatively easy to find housing in Aalborg. Prices are quite low compared to other big cities, e.g. Copenhagen.

UCN will do its utmost to help international students make their stay in Aalborg beneficial and comfortable. Keeping that in mind, however, students have to apply for housing in due time. Therefore, the earlier you apply, the higher the chances that you will get an offer of accommodation.

Please note: All incoming students are required to find their own accommodation.

Housing guarantee

The Municipality of Aalborg also guarantees that everyone coming to study in Aalborg will be covered by the housing guarantee, provided that students have registered at AKU-Aalborg.

You can read more about how to book accommodation using the Housing Guarantee in Aalborg (PDF).

Housing possibilities

Learn about your housing possibilities in Denmark by viewing the list below. You can also look for housing elsewhere, e.g. Housing Anywhere and AirBnB.

AKU Aalborg

We have learned that if e.g. 2 students register and apply together at AKU, then it is easier to receive an offer for 2 people sharing a flat. So this is something that you can think about and try to find another student with whom you can share a flat. If you do have any questions regarding this, please send an e-mail to housing@ucn.dk.

Students should expect to pay a deposit for renting a place, which they will get back at the end of renting provided that the place has been kept in good condition. Some places students are also requested to pay at least the first month’s rent. Therefore do count on extra expenses the first month to get settled.

Please note that when applying for housing through AKU-Aalborg most rooms/flats are unfurnished.
UC House

UCN has an agreement with UC House which is situated just opposite the largest shopping area in Aalborg with more than 100 shops, in an area called Skalborg. You will find everything you need here from supermarkets, banks, pharmacies, etc.

UC House is less than 2 kilometres from our department at Sofiendalsvej, approx. 4 kilometres from our department at Hobrovej and about 5 kilometres from the city centre. Several buses connect UC House to the city centre.

We offer refurbished, spacious rooms with beds, computer tables and lamps. The centre of the house is the main living room with direct access to a closed garden with barbeques. There are large sofas in the living room for hanging out with your friends or for watching TV on the big flat screen. There is also table tennis and pool tables.

Furthermore, there is free high‐speed wireless internet. You will find that there are laundry facilities with washing machines and tumble dryers (which you have to pay for). There are also fully fitted kitchens with a place to sit down and enjoy a home cooked meal.

Most rooms have the size of 20 m2 and have private toilets. Prices range from DKK 2100 to DKK 3900 for a single room, and DKK 1550 to DKK 1950 per person for two people in a shared room. There is also installed a fridge in all rooms.

Private accommodation

If you get accommodation via a private landlord, and you are not sure if the rental agreement is OK or not, please contact the staff at the international office or send an e-mail to housing@ucn.dk. We are here to help you and we will look through the rental agreement in order to see if it looks OK or not. Unfortunately, there are some landlords who can be quite dishonest.

Housing at the cottage village in Hjørring
For the international students at the Natural and Cultural Heritage Management programme, UCN can offer temporary housing at the cottage village.

The cottage village

We can offer you housing in small houses with room for up to 6 people in each house. There are shared bathrooms and toilet facilities as well as a separate house with kitchen and dining area. In addition, there is a house with a living room and a room for social activities for you to use.

The cottage village has sleeping, cooking and bathing facilities for 44 persons. You will share the facilities with your new fellow students so you will have the opportunity to get to know each other.

Please note that there will be blankets and pillows in the cottages but you do have to bring your own sheets, duvet cover and pillow case.

There are green areas surrounding the cottage village. You can e.g. play football or do other sport activities. Nearby you will also find swimming facilities and tennis court yards (payment required).

The cottage village is situated at the following address:

Børge Christensens Vej 12
9800 Hjørring

How long can I stay at the cottage village?

You can stay until 15 October 2017. From the day that you arrive and until the 15 October, you will have a unique opportunity to find new roomates to share more permanent housing and you will have a chance to learn about the local area of Hjørring before you decide where to stay permanently during your study period. We will also help you with finding suitable accommodation.


The price for staying at the cottage village is DKK 50 (approx. EURO 7) per day and per student. Please note that electricity is not included - you will have to pay for this separately.
