As you will soon embark on your studies at RUC, we encourage you to arrange a place to stay in good time before your arrival. RUC supports the global network Housing Anywhere, a peer-to-peer platform where international students can find local housing.
There are also other options such as Findbolig.nu, Findroommate.dk, Akutbolig.dk, Lejebolig.dk or Boligbasen.dk.
You can also check out our brochure ‘Getting Started’ for tips and tricks on finding accommodation.
It is very difficult to find affordable accommodation last minute. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to use these or other safe platforms for booking in good time prior to your arrival.
There are also groups on Facebook and other social media where you can look for rooms. We don’t recommend this approach and remind you that you should be careful because of potential scammers on social media.

Handbook for New International Students
Read the handbook “Getting Started” with information for new international students. It offers a lot of hands-on information regarding student life at RUC and your stay in Denmark, including what to do before your stay in Denmark and what to do upon arrival and much more.
The Mentor Programme is a face-to-face introduction to student life in Denmark by a current student at the university. This way you can be sure to get a fun and informal introduction to student life at RUC. Mentors are here to help you have to have the best start at RUC and offer a first connection upon your arrival. International students who become members of the mentor programme tend to have much better experiences at RUC and find it easier to make the most of their studies at RUC.
You are very welcome to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, comments etc.
