Moving out of the dormitory

You want to move out of the dorm?

If you want to move out of your room, please note the following points to save time and money and to avoid inconsistencies.

Organizational matters: Dates & deadlines

firstly, the notice period is usually three months. This means that if you wish to terminate the lease, you must terminate your lease no later than the third working day of a calendar month to the end of the month after next. There is one exception: At the end of the winter or summer semester, the tenant can give two months' notice. If you are unsure about the period of notice, please contact the staff of the Student Housing Department.

secondly: Before the rented dorm room/appartement is returned, a preliminary inspection is to be carried out by the caretaker or a representative of the Studierendenwerk. The purpose of the preliminary inspection is to jointly inspect the rented dorm room with the aim of giving the tenant the opportunity to have any defects and damage found remedied or to have them remedied at his/her own expense by a suitable specialist company or by doing the work professionally by the end of the rental period/return of the rented dorm room at the latest. The defects or damage identified during the preliminary acceptance shall be recorded in a protocol. The Tenant shall remedy the recorded defects and damage by the agreed return date. If the tenant fails to comply with this obligation, the defects and damage shall be remedied by the lessor or by a specialist company commissioned by the lessor. (General Terms and Conditions of Tenancy §8 Para.4) With the preliminary acceptance, the Studierendenwerk would like to give the tenants a reasonable period of time to carry out necessary cosmetic repairs on their own until they move out.

thirdly: To hand over your room, please make an appointment with the caretaker (in Neubrandenburg with the dormitory administration) 1 week before you move out (see also § 8, paragraph 4 of the general terms of lease). Office hours of the caretaker as well as telephone numbers can be found on the handed out house rules or here.

Fourthly: You can only move out on working days Monday - Friday. On Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays it is not possible to move out.

fifthly: If you move out properly, you will receive your deposit or the unaccounted parts of the deposit back 3 months after the end of the contract.

Proper condition - what does that mean?

When you hand over your room, the caretaker or dormitory administrator will check the proper condition of your room and the condition of the common rooms.  If you do not hand them over properly, your deposit will be reduced and will not be returned to you in full.
