Moving out?

What you need to do when moving out

Termination of tenancy
Your contract must be terminated at My Page. Click "Terminate lease", and contact us if you do not find the button. Sammen Housing does not accept any other kind of termination of your contract. Contracts issued after the 1st of February 2018 have a 3 months’ binding period and a 3 months’ notice period, counting from the 1st of the following month,  thereafter.  Information on when your contract was issued, or other contractual terms, you will find on My Page, or by contacting

You can sublease your accommodation if you have a formal letter of acceptance from Sammen Housing. As a subleaser you are responsible for the payment of the rent, and for the state of the accommodation. Please note that the leaser must be a fulltime student. Remember to include documentation (student card or admission letter) attached to the application. You are responsible for finding a suitable tenant. Note that the leaser can not have a contract with us throughout the rental period.

This document has to be filled out and uploaded as a case on My Page. 

Cleaning your student home
By the contract’s expiration date, the residence and fixtures are to be handed over cleaned and in the same condition as when moving in. Make sure to remove all your belongings and empty out the storage room. Please note that the cleaning department will enter the room after 12pm in order to prepare it for the next resident, even though we have not received the keys.

Our cleaning department will email you an offer to carry out an inspection of your residence 1–2 weeks before your contract expires, but this is not mandatory. If you are not contacted by any of our cleaners, you may contact Sammen Cleaning at well before moving out if you wish for an inspection.

Please see further details on what needs to be cleaned before moving out.
