Full-degree students

Students studying on a full bachelor’s or master’s degree at SDU Sønderborg should apply for accommodation directly at the Sønderborg Accommodation Office, called Studiebolig Syd.

Please note that full-degree students are not guaranteed housing. You will apply under the same conditions as Danish students, and the rooms are offered on a first come, first served basis. 

Full-degree students can apply for all types of room. The different options can be seen on Studiebolig’s website. The more rooms you apply for, the greater the chance you will receive an offer for the time the semester begins. 
An offer of housing will be sent directly via email from Studiebolig Syd.

For questions, you should contact Studiebolig Syd.
