Departure & deposit


All the rooms, bathrooms and common areas will be checked once the students have left. If you have left your room, bathroom or common area in an unacceptable state you will be held responsible and an invoice will be sent to your home address if your deposit does not cover the costs. If the cleaning company has to conduct major cleaning of your room, decalcify the bathroom, remove left items, wash dirty dishes etc.  you will be charged the direct costs (normally around 350 DKK per hour).

Remember to close all windows and lock the doors. If any damages happen such as broken windows or window frames because of open doors or windows please notice that it can cost you up to 3000 DKK to replace the damaged items.

Upon your departure put your key(s) and laundry card (if applicable) into an envelope. Make sure that your name, residence and room number are clearly marked on the envelope, and place it in the inspector’s mailbox in your residence if you reside at Porcelænshaven, Kongens Tværvej, Nimbuskollegiet, or Holger Danskes Vej. Inspector’s mailboxes can be found near the student mailboxes or at the main entrance to each residence. If you stay at Tietgenkollegiet, please place the envelope containing your key in your own mailbox at the residence.

If you received a laundry card/tag from CBS (Holger Danske Vej, Tietgenkollegiet, Nimbuskolleget, and Porcelænshaven) please make sure you return this by putting it in the envelope with your keys.

You may choose to take home the bedding you have paid for. If you do not want it, please leave it in your room on your bed in the plastic bag provided by the inspector.

All students must leave their residences by noon on the last day of the contract.

If you would like an inspector to review your room before departure, please make a request at the help desk category "Others" at least two weeks before departure. Please notice that the review only can be done on weekdays.


Your deposit will be returned to you as soon as possible, unless we need to deduct payment for incidents during your stay or in connection with your moving out. For instance:

•If all of your keys are not returned, you will be held responsible for the cost of the installment of a new lock, which will be between 300-3000 DKK depending on the residence.

Conc. lime in tap water 

The water in Copenhagen contains very much lime. If not removed regularly, it will settle on the floor and walls of the bathroom, in kitchen, in toilet, on the shower head and on the water tap etc. It has surprised many that there is so much lime in tap water that bathrooms and kitchens need extra cleaning to remove lime etc. We have therefore decided to make this fact even clearer for future residents, so the amount of extra cleaning hopefully can be reduced in the future.
