We strive to provide tenants (students and interns) with all the services and facilities for a pleasant stay in OES owned and/or managed properties.

We do not charge tenants a “damage deposit” and we do not add charges for any anticipated damages to the room rent. Rather, we charge each tenant upon check-out of the room at the end of the contract duration for items that need repair according to the conditions of the room that are different from those at their check-in. Most of recurrent damages have been included in the table of damages provided here, however, the management of OES reserves the right to apply fines on any other damages not captured in the table below.
