You can create an application whenever you want to, but your application will not become active until 6 weeks before your requested date of moving in
 
When can I move in to a student flat?
You can move in to a student flat 3 months before you start your education and you are allowed to stay in the flat 3 months after you finish your education
 
Can more than 1 person live in a student flat?

Will I advance on the waiting list for a student flat if I have nowhere to live?
No, the allocation of student flats follow the waiting list rules

What is digital post?
To ensure you get all the important letters from the public authorities when living in Denmark, it is necessary for you to get NemID.
To get NemID you will have to visit Borgerservice and remember to bring your health insurance card and passport/national ID.
Furthermore you will have to register for digital post. To do that go to www.borger.dk and use your NemID.

What is the waiting list system?
There is a waiting list for each type of flat. The waiting lists are controlled by a point system, where applicants with the highest score of points are placed at the top of the waiting lists
Applicants who live outside of Kolding get geographical starter points; this means that the further away from Kolding you live, the more starter points you get
When your application is active you make 1 point per day. An application is active 6 weeks prior to the requested date for moving in
When you add the flats you wish to apply for you will be on the waiting lists for these flats
 
Why am I moving up or down the waiting list?
You move up the waiting list when applicants, who are ahead of you, disappear from the waiting list because they have either been offered a flat, or have accepted a flat or their application is deactivated.
You move down the waiting list when applicants with a higher score of points than you choose to apply for the same flats as you.
For instance:
Applicants with a high score of starter points, who make a new application
Applicants who have been applying for a longer period than you and have chosen to apply for the same flats as you
Students from abroad have the highest score of starter points and when their applications are active (6 weeks before their requested date of moving in) you will see big variations on the waiting lists.
  
How does it all work?
Basically this is how it all works:
You register on our website
You add the student flats you wish to apply for to your application
You are now on the waiting lists for these student flats
When you are first on the waiting list for an available flat we will send the offer to your mailbox
Be sure to give us your answer within the given deadline, otherwise your application is deactivated
If you say yes to an offer we inform the housing association that the flat is yours
The housing association sends you the contract, inform you about payment, where to get the keys to the flat etc.
 
Can I see which flats are available?
Available flats with no waiting list
If you wish to apply for one of these flats you either add them to your application or contact us on phone no. 7979 7525. If the list is empty it means there are no available student flats without a waiting list.
 
How long will I have to wait before I get a student flat?
The demand for student flats is at its highest around July, August and September and that shows on the waiting lists. To increase your chances for getting a flat in this period it is a very good idea to apply for as many flats as possible. Later on in the year, when the busiest time is over, chances are better for getting a flat.
