Housing associations

Public housing is a common concept in Denmark and housing associations exist in order to ensure a variety of public housing options for the general 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 amount per year, and offer seniority on waiting lists, meaning that those who have been members the longest will be first in the queue. However, in some cases you can find good accommodation within short notice.
