Housing associations, rental agencies and landlords can be contacted directly via phone, email or their website. Furthermore, you will often find rental options from private landlords advertised on online housing portals.
Publicly-supported housing is a common concept in Denmark and housing associations exist to ensure a variety of public housing options for the public.
The associations are non-profit and are financially supported by the municipalities. These associations are often characterized by memberships, for which you pay a small fee per year, and offer their members seniority on waiting lists, meaning that those who have been members the longest will be first in the queue. Therefore, you will find it is common for people to sign up for membership with their potential future housing needs in mind. However, in some cases you can find suitable accommodation through associations within short notice.
