If your residence is rented you may be eligible to receive housing benefits from Udbetaling Danmark to help pay the rent.
In Danish, the concept “to rent” is “at leje”.
Rents in Aarhus Municipality vary depending on the location, size, and general condition of the specific dwelling. You can rent a room, a flat or a single-family house.
Rooms, flats or houses from private landlords are often found through web portals online.
It is also possible to find accommodation through a housing association (boligforening). The rent in a housing association is typically lower than for other types of rental accommodation, but they are usually let out on the basis of a waiting list.
Subletting is quite common in Denmark and for many, the first place of residence is often a temporary one.
