Moving out

Prepare your residence for a new student 🧡

Thank you for staying with us, we hope you had a nice time. Before you move, there are some things you must remember to do to make the student home ready for a new student.

Moving out

Terminate

If you want to move out before your contract expires, you have to terminate it on My page. Don't forget that you have a three month binding period from your contract started and a three-month notice period, so it's a good idea to make sure that the notice is submitted at the right time.

Change adress

Remember to enter a new address on My page. Mail that arrives at the student accommodation after you have moved will be returned to sender.

Move out cleaning

Cleaning when moving out is usually much more thorough than a regular weekly cleaning. Our experience is that most people need to spend more time on this than they initially thought. We have expectations for how it should look when you move out and will therefore help you along the way.

Damage report:

If there is a problem/damage in your room, you must register a case on My Page before moving out.

Storage room

Remember to empty your storage. If you are sharing a storage with others: hand in the storage key when you hand in your room key.

Personal belongings

It is important that you take all personal belongings and furniture with you, including things you have stored in the storage room. If you have things that you do not want to take with you further, you can:

  1. Sell the items

  2. Throw away items that are broken

  3. Pass on items in good condition to a lucky fellow student - some of our student accommodations have their own recycling rooms.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to leave personal items in your student accommodation for the next tenant.

Cleaning check

We want moving out and cleaning to be as smooth as possible. Therefore, we would like to offer you a check before you leave. This way, you can be more confident that you have done what is necessary and won't risk receiving an invoice for additional cleaning.

If you want us to check your home, you make an appointment with our cleaners from My Page. It's a good idea to make an agreement about check-out well in advance of moving out, to find a time that suits you - cleaning is quickly fully booked at the end of the semester😅

If there is something broken or missing in your student accommodation, register this on My Page before you move out.

Schedule a cleaning check:

Return keys

Keys must be handed in before 12.00 on the day your contract expires. You can of course deliver it earlier, if that suits you better.
