- Administration and Handling: One-time cost applied to the beginning of each semester. Since these dorms are classified as social housing by the authorities, we may not charge for administration and handling procedures as part of the overall rent, as we usually do. Therefore we must make a separate charge for these services. If you move to Signalhuset, Tietgen, or Øresunds, you do not pay a moving fee, but instead need to pay the Administration and Handling fee. Each time you move to these specific residences, another Administration and Handling fee will be applied. If you move within the same dormitory, you do not need to pay an extra Administration and Handling fee.
- Furniture Services: In Denmark, dormitory rooms are usually not furnished, so the Housing Foundation provides furniture for all the rooms it rents out. However, as these four dormitories are classified as social housing by the authorities, this means we may not charge for furnishing the room as part of the overall rent, as we usually do. Therefore we must make a separate charge for costs relating to buying, placing, and maintaining furniture in these dorms.
- Applies if you cancel before the tenancy start date, but more than 14 days after booking OR if you have made a room swap and have not uploaded your contract within the 3 days
- Applies if you cancel a room with an immediate tenancy start date or in the first month of renting (without moving in)
- (If you require personnel to open your room door between 16:00-08:00. The fee is applied for each subsequent occurrence, irrespective of hours.) Letting you in is not a general service we provide so you should not expect (nor rely on) the housing staff and RAs to be available at all times
