Living and studying in Nuuk
In Nuuk, student accommodation is very limited. For this reason, it is only possible to be awarded student accommodation for one semester as a guest student.
Ilisimatusarfik has an apartment with five rooms - with a shared kitchen, living room and bathroom.
Nominated graduate students who come via Erasmus +, Nordplus, UArctic or another cooperation agreement have priority.
Guest students, who are Danish citizens, can apply for student accommodation via the Government of Greenland.
Guest students, who cannot be assigned housing through Ilisimatusarfik, can try to find suitable accommodation through e.g. Airbnb.
There are no tuiton fees for guest students at Ilisimatusarfik.
Guests students are, of course, responsible for all personal expenses and travel costs.
If you are a Nordic or European student, you may also be eligible to apply for support from:
- UArctic (North2North)
Check with your international coordinator at your home university if you are eligible.
You can also check if Ilisimatusarfik has a cooperation agreement with your home university.
Cost per month for living and studying in Nuuk for a single person is about DKK 5000,- (excluding rent, which can vary widely).
