If you are a student or are going to study in Aalborg you have the opportunity to apply for a college or youth residence through AKU-Aalborg. AKU-Aalborg is an association responsible for providing college and youth housing in the municipality of Aalborg. To be considered for a home, you must create an application with AKU-Aalborg so that you are on a waiting list. On AKU-Aalborg's website, you can find more information about guidelines that you should be aware of before applying as an applicant. It is free to register and you can find answers on how to make your application on the AKU-Aalborg website.
Right now, the waiting lists are historically short. However, experience shows that longer waiting lists will occur especially up to the start of the study. It is therefore a good idea to be out in good time. You may wish to move in up to 3 months before the start of your studies, and it is a good idea to do so. This way you will have far more chances of getting a home than if you only want to move in right up to the start of your studies. Also, a good advice is that you search broadly by adding as many housing requests to your application as possible.
