Check Out Notice: Should I give prior notice of my intention to check out?
Yes. Residents must give at least four weeks’ notice in advance to Wittenborg Housing of their intended check-out date and time, so a mutually suitable pre-check-out time can be agreed by both parties. The intended check-out date and time can be on or before the last date of the housing package.

Check-in Rules: I have moved into Wittenborg student housing recently. What should I do next?
At check-in, residents are provided with an inventory checklist, the Check-In Form*. Please use this document to report any issues within your apartment and submit it signed to the front office within 3 working days of your arrival. If this document is not submitted, it is taken as confirmation that all items, and dormitory, as set out in the inventory checklist, are present and in good condition. Residents must pay for any damages incurred outside normal ‘wear and tear’.
*This list is used again when checking out. The items on the back of the form must be present when checking out. All missing items are to be paid for by the leaving student. The personal items on the list must be removed from the room.
