Check-in on the day of arrival is at 14:00. Upon check-in students staying in the apartments, hostel and student houses will be asked to pay a damage deposit of € 100.00 which will be refunded upon departure. Students who arrive during the night are to leave their ID Card / Passport with the security guard and return to the main residence (Garden View Complex) reception the next morning to pick-up their document/s and pay the € 100.00 damage deposit. If students’ arrival is early in the day and they prefer immediate access to their room, the School recommends that the accommodation is reserved from the night before to guarantee immediate access.
Check-out on the day of departure is at 11:00. When checking out, students staying in the apartments, hostel and student houses should allow at least 1 hour for management to check the accommodation and refund the damage deposit. If a student fails to allow at least 1 hour, management reserves the right to refund the damage deposit at a later stage. In order to be checked, the accommodation has to be vacated and keys returned.
The damage deposit of € 100.00 paid on check-in will be refunded (in full or part thereof) on check-out, upon presentation of the damage deposit receipt and after the accommodation has been inspected. The damage deposit is held against any costs that may be incurred in respect of missing items of inventory, breakages, damages or excessive dirt that students may cause during their stay. Management also reserves the right to fine students where disturbances to other clients or third parties have been reported. In these cases the fine will be taken from this deposit. It is very important to note that students’ liability is not limited to € 100.00 and the School reserves the right to charge extra money or take any other necessary measures as and when required. Clients departing during the night are to pick up their deposit from the main residence (Garden View Complex) reception the evening before between 18:00 and 23:30.
Cleaning of the accommodation and change of towels and bed linen takes place on a weekly basis; missing items will not be replaced. Cleaning includes washing of floors and bathroom/s, and dusting of furniture; cleaning of plates, pots and pans is not included. Even though cleaning is provided, students are to keep their rooms tidy to make cleaning easier and must throw all their rubbish into the large container situated outside the main entrance of the accommodation on a daily basis. Rubbish is not to be left to accumulate indoors as this will attract ants and other unwanted insects. Students leaving untidy rooms will not have their accommodation cleaned and may have to pay an additional fee for extra cleaning services.
If a student changes from one accommodation to another accommodation of the same category, an administration fee of € 25.00 will be charged. If a student changes to accommodation of a superior category, the student will only be charged the difference in price. There will be no refund if a student changes to accommodation of an inferior category. The respective hotels’ policies will apply for students staying at a hotel.
If a student changes from one host family to another host family, an administration fee of € 25.00 will be charged; the administration fee will also apply if the student changes to any other type of accommodation.

Management or staff can enter to check the accommodation whenever they deem it necessary. Pots, pans, plates, cutlery etc. must not be moved from one accommodation to another. When inspecting the accommodation on departure, clients will be charged for missing items even if they are in another accommodation. Posters, photos, postcards, etc. must not be stuck on to the walls; this is to avoid damaging the plastering – a maximum fee of € 25.00 per room will be charged for whitewashing. Students are responsible for missing items of inventory, breakages and damages in their accommodation; therefore, it is in the interest of the students who are sharing accommodation to ensure that any damage caused in their accommodation is reported to management immediately.
