Advice on Accommodation & Living Costs in Denmark.
Most international students in Denmark will choose to live in university accommodation at first, as this the easiest way to settle in, make friends and be close to the university.
The main types of accommodation open to international students in Denmark are:
• Halls of residence (kollegier) – usually on campus, and solely for students. These are generally cheaper than private accommodation.
• Homestays – where families open up their home to international students for extended periods, so they can experience the culture whilst completing their course.
• Private rentals – where you rent an apartment privately from a landlord, either on your own or with other people.
Denmark is regarded as an expensive country in which to live compared to other European countries. However, this is offset by the quality of life in Denmark being amongst the highest in the world.
