How

If you’re a postdoc or PhD looking for a new place to hang your hat, you may want to take a look at a new apartment complex at Helsingforsgade 5 A-D in Katrinebjerg, just north of AU’s central campus in Aarhus. 

Fifty-one of the 129 apartments in the complex are reserved for postdocs or PhD students and their families. 

From 47m2 to 89 m2

There are apartments in different sizes, from 47 m2 one-room units to 62m2 two-room units and 89m2 three-room units. 

The monthly rent is 5,062 kroner plus utilities for the smallest apartments and 7,923 plus utilities for the largest. 

You (and your family) can move in as of October 1 this year.

How to join the waiting list

You can sign up for an apartment by creating a profile on  AARHUSbolig.dk

AARHUSbolig is a waiting list for all of the not-for-profit housing associations in the Aarhus area.

After you create a profile on aarhusbolig.dk, you can select the apartments for which you want to join the waiting list. Then you contact the rental office at Boligkontoret Aarhus, which is responsible for renting out the apartments.

Remember to state that you’re a postdoc or PhD student

“We need people who are interested to call us and tell us that they’re postdocs or PhDs. This is the only way we can make sure that they get priority access to the new apartments,” explained Rikke Laursen from the Boligkontoret rental office.
