Important Updates from your Residential Life Team: hot chocolate study break, final room checks, linen exchange during finals week!

Study Break with Hot Chocolate & Cake

Join your ResLife Team next Monday, December 15 at 7pm for a much deserved break during the busy exam preparation period. Wind down with some lovely hot chocolate and delicious cake in the Wohnzimmer and refuel accordingly for the rest of the week.

Final Room Check

On Wednesday, December 17 we are conducting this semester’s last room check. Please make sure that your apartment is accessible (though you will not need to be present) all day as the room check will take place from 9am onwards. This room check will help us evaluate the condition of the apartments and the interior to efficiently plan our maintenance- and cleaning period between semesters. The room check will also give you and us the opportunity to assess any damages caused during this semester. Please do note that we will be entering all rooms in each apartment. Thank you for your cooperation!

Linen exchange during finals week

Since we are approaching the end of the semester, this week’s linen exchange was the last regular linen exchange. If you would like to have fresh linen during the upcoming days, just stop by the ResLife office during office hours (between 9am – 6pm).
