Operational disturbances on the website from 24/1 kl. 16.00 until 26/1 kl. 18.00

As our system provider has to renew parts of their central equipment in their data center, unfortunately there will be operational disturbances in the weekend from Friday January 24 at 16.00 until Sunday January 26 at 18.00.

In periods the website will be accessible, and our system provider will seek to make the operational disturbances as short as possible. Still, we will recommend you to log on to
your application before January 24 to update it and make sure there are no unanswered offers that expires in the period, due to problems with logging in.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience it may cause, but we hope that it will not be a big problem

Absolute Assurance for Accommodation works!

In 2018, 111 students used the Absolute assurance for accommodation. The guarantee had an impact on 46 % of the student’s choice on which city to study in.
In general, there is less students who use the guarantee compared to previous years. The highest number of applicants was in 2015 with 181 students, but has been decreasing steadily since then. The expectation is that the amount will keep decreasing. This is due to the growing number of new student accommodations in Odense. There has been built 1,025 new student accommodations in the period 2011-2019. In addition, the number of youths between 19-22 years of age have been decreasing slowly.
The Absolute assurance for accommodation guarantee for Odense municipally are used by students who move to the city and therefore can be guaranteed a place to live, if they cannot find a place on their own. 
It gives the students access to a common sleeping dormitory divided in gender. There are common kitchen, toilet, shower, common room and Wi-Fi, which is included in the rent, which is between 2.000 and 2.200 DKK.
In 2019, the dormitories are offered from Diamanten in Vollsmose, Kragbjerggaard Vandrehjem and Odense Hostel ApS. There is an expectation from The Department of Culture and Urban Development that 90-120 students will make use the offer in 2019.
