These are the terms the host department or similar commit to when reservering a room/apartment for a visiting guest:


  • The host department is responsible for their guest as well as act as a guarantor.

  • The host department verifies that the applicant is an international guest researcher.

  • The host department has a two full calendar month´s notice on the reservation of accommodation. if the arrival date is changed or the reservation changed less than two calendar months before the start date, the host department will be liable to the rent. That means that if the booking needs to be cancelled before the guest researcher has moved in, you need to notify us (in writing) two full calendar months' before the start date of the contract. For example: If the start date of the contract is the 1st of July you need to notify us no later than the 30th of April. Please note: If a cancellation is not made in time, rent will be charged the host department.

  • When we have reserved a room or apartment for your guest researcher we will send you a confirmation of the booking. Please read it carefully to make sure the details are correct.

If the 1st of a month occur on a Saturday, Sunday or on a public holiday it is the next coming weekday that is the start date of the contract. Upon request the contact person from the host department can collect the keys on behalf of the guest and hand them over to the guest. The keys can however not be collected before the start date of the contract.
