Where to look?
Aarhus is quite good choice. It is internationalized, good for students, there are many companies - and there are different districts in Aarhus such as the center of the city with shopping, bars and cafés all over. Frederiksbjerg
is a district in the inner part of Aarhus looking like something from the 1800s. Latiner-kvarteret (latin quarters) is a hip place for hanging out. Trøjborg
is an expensive village area in the northern part of Aarhus on a hill. Aarhus Ø
(east) is more fashionable and expensive with sea view
and with new and expensive buildings.
Private rent out of rooms/rentals within the average price level
can for instance be found on findaroommate.dk or on local groups on facebook. There are other sites and apps for renting, buying and selling flats like dba.dk, but the site is in Danish. It can be hard to know which site to trust. In general, it is advisable not to believe an offer, which is extremely cheap, looks like a scam and asks for money through Western Union.
In general, it is easier to find something outside the city center of Aarhus, which will take shorter time to find a place and you get a better price.
