What is the Placement fee?

Placement fee refers to the only one time-fee that you pay before your move in date. This means that the placement fee must always be paid in advance in order to reserve a room. This one-time fee will cover all the amenities available during your stay such as the application paper work, furnished bedroom and living room, full bedding set, kitchenware, regular maintenance, utilities, TV and Wi-Fi provided and a live-in manager who provides assistance 24/7.

What is a Move Out Notice?

Resident must give a 4-week notice before leaving our Accommodation or Homestay. Failure to comply with this then one is liable to be charged for the 4 weeks rent when they move without a 4-week notice.

What time can I check in?

The check in time in our Accommodation is between 10am – 4pm. We might charge an extra fee if you check in before the reception hours. The check in time in Homestay is between 10am – 8pm.

What is the minimum lease requirement for Homestay?

As it is hard to find a host Family interested to host an International Student for less than a month, we require at least a 4-week minimum lease.

What is the minimum lease requirement for Accommodation?

There’s no minimum lease for Accommodation. However, keep in mind that the reservation is based on the payment period dates.

Can I extend the period of stay in the Accommodation after my arrival?

Yes, as long as there are available rooms. The number of rooms is limited, so you should make a reservation for the whole expected period.
