Once the guarantee fee is paid please make sure to take the payment receipt and present it to the student dormitory administrative office. After payment has been made you are able to sign housing agreement. Please make sure to keep your copy of the document as you will need it later in the City District Government office when registering the temporary place of residence in Estonia.

The dormitory building has three separate sections: A, B and C which can be connected only in case of emergency. Such a key system was especially designed for students’ safety.
You will be receiving an invoice every month containing monthly rent plus utility expenses. The later is higher during the heating season, i.e. September – April.
