On the link "Our Campuses", there is a specific link on accommodation for each specific campus that location.  

Cost of Living:

The standard of living is high and the economy performs above the European average. Accommodation, food, transport and leisure are therefore relatively expensive in Denmark compared to other countries. But salaries and PhD stipends are correspondingly high, and services such as medical treatment and schools are paid for through the tax and welfare system so that user fees are not charged. Here are some estimated prices:

Housing/rent - EUR 300-600/month
Food and daily expenses - EUR 200-350/month
Bus ticket - EUR 2.70/ride (EUR 19 for ten-ride pass)
