What and How?

  • Return all keys and or tags that were issued to you on your arrival, or that belong to the room/apartment.
  • Do not return the keys in an envelope or plastic/paper bag when using the key return chute. Using an envelope or plastic bag will lead to blockages in the key return chute.

Please note

  • Returning your keys means that you are obliged to return all keys and other items belonging to your set of keys. What belongs to a set of keys varies but it can, for example, be a laundry lock, laundry key, key finder tag, laundry tag, balcony key, etc.
  • The keys remain your responsibility until they are received by LU Accommodation. If you send them to us from abroad you need to stand for all costs until they arrive at our office. If sent to us this way, the keys should always be marked as a gift to avoid additional costs.

For Students at Helsingborg:


At 12:00 noon on the last day of your contract, at the very latest.
