It is a good idea to have obtained student housing even if you do not know if you will be accepted for studies. The lease can be canceled if you are not accepted.

What to do with the contract?

If you are not accepted to a programme, you can cancel your contract by 31 July and be released from the lease starting on 1 August.

If your contract starts on 1 August or later, you will pay nothing.

NB. Tenants with a contract start date in July are obliged to pay the rent for the month of July in accordance with section 5.4 of the rental agreement.

*Non-cancellable contracts for international students

International students are awarded contracts that are non-cancellable and last until June 30 or July 31, based on the student's wishes.

Are you unsure of what applies in your contract? Read §4 in your lease, where you will find correct information about the duration of your tenancy.
