What to think about before moving out


Keys: You must return the keys to the Info Centre in Studenthuset according to your housing contract. If the 1st is a Saturday or Sunday, you should return them at the latest the first weekday after this day at 12.00 noon. If we receive the keys later than this date and time, we must change the block on your door and it costs about 4000 SEK if you live with Heimstaden and about 2000 SEK if you live with Studentbostäder. Depending on their different types of locks system. We need to know as early as possible if you have lost a key, in order to have time to change the lock before you move out.

If Info Centre in Studenthuset is closed when you come to return the keys, we have a post box installed on the left side of the glass door to entrance 31 at D-building (opposite to Pressbyrån). You can reach this post box 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Just put the keys in to an envelope and leave them there. It is ok to ask a friend to leave us the keys but remember to inform them about exact place and when the keys should be left. It is your responsibility that we receive them back in due time. Do not give the keys to Studentbostäder or Heimstaden! Your room are rented by the University so we must keep the keys.


Other important tasks:

  • Make sure that you do the cleaning that needs to be done, depending on what accommodation you have (check the section about cleaning for more information). If cleaning is not included in your contract, and you leave your apartment without doing the final cleaning, you will get an invoice from Studentbostäder via e-mail. Contact us if you have questions about it housing@liu.se. 
  • You should avoid leaving any belongings or extra furniture in the room, cause you will be charged for transporting it away. Throw away all other belongings from you or the tenant before you. It is only ok to leave a router, network cable, clean pillow or a blanket.
  • The door to your student accommodation must be locked when you leave it.
  • If you paid the rent by automatic on internet, or from your bank, make sure to cancel it.
  • Do not throw away the bill for the coming month. Leave it in the post box for the next tenant.
  • If you have a parking place, cancel it with Studentbostäder or Heimstaden; info@studentbostader.se; linkoping@heimstaden.com.
  • Before you move out, it is important that you cancel your internet contract with Utsikt, otherwise the next tenant will be able to surf on pages in your name. Phone 0771-504 050 or send them an e-mail at student@utsikt.se
