Accommodation for Interns
As a participant on an agri LIDA internship program, you are guaranteed housing.
Renting rooms in shared flats
- It is very common in Denmark because many young people cannot afford their own flat. For young foreigners, who come to Denmark to work or study, renting a room in a shared flat is an easy, fast and cheap solution. The contract for a room in a shared flat will normally be a quite informal agreement with the flat owner.
- All student residences in basic fully- furnished farmhouse apartment with single private locked bedroom. Every apartment has all the necessities, including lockable bedrooms, cooking utensils and of course WiFi.
- The flats are self-catered so you will be preparing your own meals and shopping at a nearby grocery store. Mostly you will be placed with other international intern students. It is very common to live in mixed-gender housing in Denmark.
- Your room will have no decoration, so you might want to consider bringing some things to make your room nice (just make sure to take them with you again once you leave).

- Tenant(s) is responsible for cleaning all areas of the Premises, including but not limited to, living room, dining room, kitchen, hallways, laundry room, bedrooms, closets, bathrooms, outdoor walkways.
- When it comes to shared kitchens and other common areas, we suggest that you make a cleaning plan with your fellow residents at the beginning of the stay so you can all share equally in the work.
- To prevent the infestation of rodents and insects, Tenants must remove any collected trash and food waste from the Premise at least once a week.
- Carpets and rugs must be vacuumed at least once a week. Hardwood floors or tiles must be swept once a week. Bathrooms must be cleaned regularly, and as frequently as needed, to prevent the formation of mold and mildew.
- If Tenant(s) does not clean adequately and regularly, Tenant(s) will be liable for reasonable cleaning charges – including charges for cleaning carpets, draperies, furniture, walls, etc. that are soiled beyond normal wear (that is, wear or soiling that occurs without negligence, carelessness, accident, or abuse). Landlord reserves the right to hire a recurring Professional Cleaning/Maid Service if Tenant(s) are not keeping the premises in clean/sanitary order at Landlord’s own judgment. This expense will be the responsibility of the Tenant(s)
Good to know
- Denmark has some of the cleanest water in the world, so it is safe to drink it straight from the cold-water tap.
- Radiators in Denmark have a thermostat. This means that you can control the temperature in your room yourself. However, you should turn off the heat when you air out your room, as the radiator will heat more trying to keep the same temperature in the room and thus waste energy and money. Switch it on again when you close the windows.
Lock your doors and windows
- Denmark are generally nice and safe places to live. However, it is important that you remember to lock the doors and windows when you are not home as well as when for instance you prepare food and socialise in the common kitchen.
- Remember that it is your responsibility to insure yourself and your belongings while you stay in Denmark.
- A Travel insurance making sure that you will be able to return to your home country or that your family can travel to Denmark, if needed, in case of severe illness or accident
- A Home and Liability insurance to cover your belongings in case of theft, water damage, fire, etc. This insurance should also cover you if you by accident damage other people or property, including the furnishings of your room, for which you are responsible during your stay.
- An Accident insurance in case of severe consequences to you in connection with an accident, not covered by the travel insurance
- We do not recommend any particular company, but you can use Forsikringsportalen to find affordable insurance company offers, or you can ask your Danish employer or fellow international students, if they know of any insurance companies to recommend.
