Student Housing

A large part of Danish new build consists of student apartments. Youth housing, student housing and dormitories are built all over the country in high quality and in central locations and can be a shortcut to housing for students.

New build activity is high in Denmark. Particularly in the big cities, significant construction activity is happening, both in existing areas and with the formation of completely new districts. A proportion of the new project buildings are reserved for young people and students, and are usually characterized by fewer square meters and lower prices. The projects include youth housing, student housing and dormitories, and are often built as larger buildings with advantageous locations, close to educational institutions and public transport.

The student housing buildings are spread all over the country, but are primarily centered around the larger cities, with several projects under way in Copenhagen, Aarhus and Odense. The big cities have long had problems with a lack of housing specifically for students, and are therefore seeking to meet the tremendous demand with project buildings aimed specifically at students.

Modern buildings of a high quality

In the past, student housing has been associated with tiny one-bedroom apartments or, in some cases, rooms with shared bathrooms and kitchens. Today, however, the buildings are built using state-of-the-art, high-quality materials, and with a focus on practicality and optimal use of the space. The majority of the homes today are also equipped with both their own bathroom and kitchen, and in many ways constitute small but fully functional apartments. Youth, student accommodation and dormitories are primarily offered as rented accommodation.

A shortcut in your housing search

For young people and students, it can be advantageous to look at newly built homes. Contrary to many existing buildings, with project construction you can 'skip the queue' and move into the apartment when it is ready. Conversely, with existing dormitories and youth housing, you usually have to be put on a waiting list, sometimes with a waiting period of several years.
