QUICK RECAP OF THE STAGES OF THE HOUSING APPLICATION:
Allocation of Accommodation
Allocation depends on several criteria’s, which are notified to the student in advance. Depending on the availability of accommodation and to respect gender, allocation will be made by school or by the accommodation provider and then sent by e-mail.
The student may refuse the accommodation offered.
If he/she refuses, he/she will have to find his/her own accommodation.
The allocation of accommodation offered by the housing coordinator will be validated when the student has made the housing payment before the given deadline.
If the deadline is not respected, the reservation will be cancelled and the student will have to find his/her own accommodation.
It is advisable to inform the Housing Office of any health problem, which could affect the choice of accommodation.
The allocation of shared accommodation respects strict rules :
If one or both of the roommates wish(es) to leave the accommodation before the end of the designated period, the rent must be paid by both parties until the end of the period whatever the reason for leaving – regardless the departure reason. As you cannot stay alone in a double-occupancy accommodation, you will be relocated to another.
Arrival, departure and inventory of fixtures and fittings
Arrivals and departures take place on weekdays between 9am and 4pm and must be planned in advance.
It is impossible to enter or exit accommodation during the weekend or on a Bank Holiday and outside the times given above or outside the date and time planned in advance.
If you wish to arrive earlier, you must find other accommodation at your own expense.
The inventory of fixtures and fittings will take place in the presence of the tenant. The inventory may also take place before the arrival of the tenant. In this case, the tenant must sign the original copy of the inventory on arrival and a copy of this inventory will be given to him/her.
The tenant will then have seven days to notify the Housing Office of NEOMA BS and fifteen days to notify the leaseholder of any malfunctions.
The tenant must absolutely be present for the checkout to make an inventory of the room/studio. The room/studio must be empty of the belongings by the time of the appointment. The fridge must be empty and clean.
The aim of this check-out is to make sure that everything is in order for you to get your deposit back. If something is broken or dirty, the tenant will be charged for the repair and it will come out of the deposit.
A cleaning fee might be charged depending on your residence.
The hall of residence must receive the notice of departure one month before the departure of the tenant if the accommodation is furnished.
