Housing and Orientation
In Aarhus students don't live on campus and few students live in the city center where prices are very high. You must prepare yourself for commuting to/from campus by bike, bus or train every day. From most dorms it will take you a maximum of 30 minutes.
IF you want a specific location of your new home, or a room close to campus, you should NOT apply for housing via AU Housing, but instead yourself find a room at the private market. It is not very easy, and we recommend that you start house hunting 2-3 months before arrival. There is no tradition in Aarhus for finding a room after arrival, and we STRONGLY recommend that you don't arrive without having a place to stay.
