Where to live?

SDU will assist in finding housing for all participants in the SDU Summer School. Please make sure you apply for a room in the right city where your programme is taught.

You will find the options available in each city listed below.


Application deadline: 1 June, 2024

Please note that you are not guaranteed housing just because you apply before the deadline, as the number of rooms can be limited. The rooms are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Therefore, we recommend that you apply for housing as soon as you have applied for your Summer School program. 

If you have applied for housing and you do not get accepted to the Summer School, your  housing reservation will be cancelled automatically.
