Confirmation and check-in
- Once the housing reservation is confirmed and the deposit paid, the Housing Service sends the housing regulations and instructions to each student, with detailed arrival and check-in information.
- The housing regulations include a copy of the accommodation agreement, which students sign during check-in.
- They then receive their room key.
Residents are responsible for paying the rent and additional fees (parking, private lockers, gym membership, etc.) regularly and on time, according to the terms set out by the Graduate Institute’s Housing Service. Details about these additional costs are listed in the applicable housing regulations. Rent is due on a monthly basis, before the 1st of each month.
Before the housing contract expires, the Housing Service inspects the housing unit, in the presence of the student, to check inventory and verify the state of the unit and of all the equipment provided (furniture, kitchen equipment, crockery, etc.). Subsequently, departing residents receive a final closure account, listing any eventual arrears and/or outstanding fees, as well as any costs covering insufficient cleaning, property damage/repairs, and equipment or furniture replacements. After both parties accept this account, any remaining deposit balance is returned to the resident.
For any questions concerning student accommodation, the running of the residences, or contractual arrangements, please send an email to email@example.com or call + 41 22 908 45 01 (8:00-16:30 from Monday to Friday).
