There is a shortage of housing available for students in the larger cities. Jan Johansen, the housing spokesperson for Socialdemokraterne, said that students need to be willing to commute.  

“People who work have to commute between their jobs and their homes, and students should be willing to do the same,” said Johansen.

Jakob Ruggaard, the head of the Danish Student Union, countered that students often cannot afford to commute everyday and that they are more successful if they live closer to school. Ruggaard said that Johansen is covering up the fact that the government has failed to provide affordable housing for students. – DR News
