Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? It was an ok place and it was perfect to meet others, a very social place, the Kollegium! So if you come alone I would definately recomend it. Also very close to the main university!
Personal comments:
It is a rather new building with a big common area in the middle with common kitchen. There is a TV room, possibility to wash clothes with a special card you have to buy. You have a room in a freezer. There are lots of parties going on!

Nightlife
Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Student life dominates the city
Activities: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Nightlife, Travel: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
One of the most popular places is defenitely Studenter Huset! Every Wednesday it is open for an International Night where all the international students are having their social get together. One of my favourite places in Aalborg is an Art House cinema called Biffen. Best cafe is defenitely KloserTorvet, the one that provides with best snacks for the cheapest price.

FINAL COMMENTS

be aware in Denmark there are a lot of very open, helpful and cearing people - if you have any problems just ask and you will receive help; everybody understands English; be aware it rains in Dnemark very often, but the weather is quite worm; you can find easely a cheap second hand bike - it will help you to save some money;
