Signing of the lease contract and handing over of the keys

The signing of the rental contract as well as the handing over of the key is carried out in our front office, accessible exclusively by appointment via Affluences

For organisational reasons, the accommodations are only available from 16.00 on the day the keys are handed over.

Entry to the accommodation takes place at the earliest at 16:00 on the first day of the contract (depending on the contract, either the 1st* or the 16th of the month*).

*Exception: If the 1st or 16th of the month falls on a Saturday, a Sunday or a public holiday, the move-in is only possible on the next working day (except Saturday) following the start of your lease.

It is not possible to collect the key and move in outside office hours. If you arrive in the evening, on a weekend or on a public holiday, you will have to find a temporary solution off-campus.

The signing of the lease and the handing over of the keys are only possible if:

  • Your enrolment at SEVE Admissions is completed, i.e. you have obtained your student card;
  • You have confirmed the booking of the accommodation by paying the deposit and the first month's rent.
  • You have provided SEVE Logement with a certificate of your home insurance: 

You must take out "home insurance" for your university accommodation.

The « home insurance » must cover the following risks:

  • Personal and tenant’s liability,
  • Furniture : € 5 000 minimum,
  • Building and contents 
    • Flooding/water damage : damage caused by the action of water originating in or communicated by real property or its contents.
    • Fire, explosion : personal injury and/or property damage caused by fire, a blaze, an explosion or smoke resulting from fire or a blaze, originating in or communicated by real property or its contents: damage to property caused by the action of water, fire, a blaze, an explosion or smoke resulting from a fire or blaze caused to the rented building.

The University of Luxembourg also offers a multi-risk home insurance http://www.allia.lu/eShop/Home.aspx or you can take out “home insurance” by an insurance company registered in the Grand duchy of the Luxembourg
