Apply for accommodation

As our accommodations are general youth and dormitory accommodations, we have some requirements that you have to meet to apply for accommodation with us. You can read more about the requirements below. 

How do I apply for an accommodation?


All our accommodations are rented through Studiebolig Odense, who has a common application site for accommodations when studying in Odense. If you wish to apply for one of our accommodations, then you need to make an application on Studiebolig Odense. It is not possible to rent one of our accommodations without being on Studebolig Odense's waiting list. 

When you make your application, it is important that you read the information page at the website. Studiebolig Odense has a set of rules and demands for your application has to meet. If your application does not meet the required rules and demands, it can have negative consequences for your application of accommodations and in worst case scenario, your application can be deleted. 

How do I get offered an accommodation?

You will be contacted automatically by e-mail, when it is your turn to get an offer of accommodation. To answer the offer of accommodation, you have to go to "housing offers" at Studiebolig Odense. It is very important that you answer all offers even if you decline an offer. If you do not answer within the deadline, your application will be deactivated and you will loose your spot on the waiting list.  

You can read a lot more about this on the information page on Studiebolig Odense.

How long is the expected waiting time? 

Unfortunately, it is very hard to say how long it will take for you to get an accommodation. The wait time is based on a lot of things e.g. how many people is applying for that specific accommodation and when they become available. Also, the time of year can influence the wait time. The following is a rough estimate of the wait times:

  • 1 room accommodation (shared kitchen and bathroom): 2-3 months
  • 1 and 2 room accommodations in Odense C and M: 12-18 months
  • 1 and 2 room accommodations outside Odense C and M: 3-6 months
  • Specific dormitory: 1-2 years

Exceptions are Bikubenkollegiet, Munke Mose Park, J.B. Winsløwkollegiet and Cortex Park as these accommodations are very popular and therefore have an expected wait time of about 18-24 months.

How do I make changes to my application?

Changes to an already made application has to be done at Studiebolig Odense.

I am starting my education soon - how do I get an accommodation?

If you live outside Odense Municipality and are going to study, then you have the possibility to get into group C for applicants on Studiebolig Odense. Then you are in the group for "absolute assurance for accommodation". Read more about it here.
