General Rental Conditions

Reservation Fee:

The reservation fee is 500 EUR. A service fee of 50 EUR will be deducted from the reservation fee. The remaining amount will be forwarded from ERG Universitätsservice GmbH to Studierendenwerk Berlin and serves as a deposit, which will be kept by the Studierendenwerk Berlin administration until the student moves out. The deposit will be paid back within six months after your departure by bank transfer as long you do not have any outstanding costs and the room is in good condition.

Cancellation:

After registration, a two-weeks right of withdrawal applies. After that period the registration is binding.

Cancellations of existing registrations must be communicated in writing (an e-mail is sufficient, but has to be confirmed by the ERG Universitätsservice GmbH) at the latest 14 days after the registration. A 50 EUR cancellation fee applies and will be deducted from the reservation fee before it is refunded to the student by Freie Universität Berlin / ERG Universitätsservice GmbH. All bank transaction fees have to be covered by the student.

No fees of any kind are refunded in case of cancellation more than two weeks after the registration. The whole amount of the reservation fee will be kept.
