Student Accommodation – Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Rates (valid until 26 August 2021)

Exceptionally in the winter semester 2020 and given that classes are scheduled to be delivered in a blended format (online, virtual, and face-to-face), you may choose to book your accommodation on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Due to COVID-19, students will be able to book on a single and twin occupancy only. 

When you choose to book a room on a daily, weekly, or a monthly basis, the corresponding rent becomes due in full and immediately, along the security deposit amount. 

Regardless of the duration of your booking, all refunds will be processed at the end of the Winter semester, during the week of 31 January 2021. We will not be able to process any refunds beforehand. 

OES accommodation is not subject to GUtech decisions about the format of teaching. Please ensure to check your timetable before booking and paying for accommodation. We are not responsible for any changes in your timetable and we will not be able to make any refunds following any changes in the timetable. Again, all refunds, if eligible and applicable, will be handled during the week of 31 January 2021.

Student Accommodation – Semester Rental Rates (from 1st October 2021)

The semester tenancy agreement is the minimum rental option available to students. The semester rate is an economic option comparing to the weekly and the daily rates. We offer you the option to pay the semester rent in four (4) installments if you wish. If you choose to pay the full semester rate in full, you will be able to make saving worth 3% of the total semester rent (providing that you pay before October 3rd).
