Rental invoice, deposit and refund

Your rental invoice


You will receive rental invoices by email and on a monthly basis (except for the first invoice which you will receive shortly upon check-in).
The deposit is charged on the first invoice. You should settle each invoice within 30 days..

Please note that there is no need to pay anything pre-arrival nor upon your arrival. On arrival, we will explain to you how to pay the rent (and deposit if applicable).


Each monthly rental fee is the same. Only the first and last invoice could be slightly different, e.g. in case the start date of your tenancy agreement was in February or September. 
In case your agreement did not contain the full month, the rental fee on your invoice will be adjusted according to your rental agreement.

Please note that only rent is charged for the term (days) as mentioned in the tenancy agreement.


Invoices are always in name of the tenant, never a third party (like e.g. your home institution). However, please note that anyone can pay. As long as the unique structural reference number (which is the same as the invoice number) is mentioned, any transfer from any account will be accepted.

Which period?

On each invoice, you can find the period for which the rent was billed for. You can find this information just below the general info and data bar on the bill.

Payment options?

Payment with VISA or MasterCard is only available for PhD students, Staff members or visitors to our University, staying here only for a short period.

Students have two main options: by bank transfer or by cash in a post office. Please always keep in mind that fees or outbound rates may apply.
