What is the duration of each semester?

Aarhus is a very popular place to study. This means that it can be very difficult and expensive to find accommodations on the private market. We, consequently, recommend that you make use of the accommodations offered to exchange students by the school. These accommodations are generally cheaper than what you can find on the private market.

The accommodations which the school offers for the exchange students are made available by Student Housing Aarhus (Kollegiekontoret)
