I really enjoyed my Eramus experience in Demark. I enjoyed so much that I repeat this year again. It is a calm country but for me it is perfect. I have made good friends and it was an experience I recommend to everybody. Watch out!!! It is very cold and not much light but if you do not care much about this you will find out a wonderful country. Read Review

HOUSING    
Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: On campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why? I like to be living near to where I have to study and attend to classes.
Personal comments:
Housing depends very much on the luck you have but it is very difficult to have something good and is always expensive. I was not very lucky first and then I found some other accomodation independently. I have always lived in the Campus but first I was in a place everybody calls "containers" so you can imaging how was that... Then I moved to a typical residence for danish students using the subletting procedure. I was more comfortable there and I payed less as well.
