Learn about how to get accommodation when moving to Denmark

Housing in Aalborg

Denmark does not have a tradition for on-campus housing as they do in other parts of the world. UCN will do its best to help international students get ready for their stay in Aalborg. However, all incoming students are required to find their own accommodation. In order to help you with finding accommodation, we have compiled a FAQ about this subject. 

AKU Aalborg

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 2400 to DKK 4200 for a single room. Interested in sharing a room? Please check out their website uchouse.dk in order to see the prices for sharing a room. Please note that 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.

Beware of dodgy landlords

Please do not pay any rent or deposit for a room/flat to a bank account in e.g. UK or another country. A legitimate landlord in Denmark only have a Danish bank account. If you are in doubt, please contact us before you make any payments at all.
