Please note that you are liable for rent from the start date of your contract even if you arrive later.
I will arrive before the start date of my contract. Is that possible?
You will unfortunately not be able to move into your room before the start date of your contract. If you arrive early you will have to arrange temporary housing for that period.
What do I need to do once I have moved into my room?
1. Complete the inventory report
The inventory can be found on your housing account. Please inspect the standard and the cleanliness of your room when you move in and fill out the inventory report to LU Accommodation within three days. The report is for our documentation, which is important when you move out. Any costs for cleaning or unreported damage caused to furniture and the room itself will be drawn from the deposit.

3. Make sure your name is on the letterbox
