    Holiday houses

    If you have been an employee at AAU for at least one year and work more than 15 hours per week, you have the opportunity to rent a holiday home through AAU’s holiday fund.

    The holiday fund at AAU has five holiday homes at your disposal in the Northern part of Jutland (two in Blokhus, one in Løkken, one in Skagen, and one in Nr. Lyngby) and one apartment in Copenhagen.

    The homes are fully equipped with pillows, duvets, tableware and cookware. In addition, the homes have wood stoves, radio and TV.

    The prices for renting the holiday houses are low compared to renting through a bureau. The houses are generally under the shelter of the tenants and therefore, it is expected that the tenants actively contribute to the maintenance of houses. If you find that there are no cleaning products or other items, they can be purchased for reimbursement at the holiday fund's administration.

    For enquiries on the holiday homes and more information, please contact Lene Søndergaard in the Finance and Accounts Office at AAU.
