A security deposit of € 500.00 is required from students who accept the housing assignment to guarantee the fulfillment of all commitments made with the acceptance itself.
Payment of the security deposit must be made by credit card through StoreUB, following the instructions available within the housing application at the time of the reservation.
Please note that students who confirm for A.Y. 2023-2024 the accommodation occupied for A.Y. 2022-2023 will not have to repeat the payment of the previously paid security deposit.
The security deposit will be returned to the student, without interest, and thereafter at the time the student finally vacates his or her assigned place at the end of the A.Y. 2023-2024, but no later than January 2025. This refund timeline will apply to all housing assignments related to the standard assignment period (end of August 2023-end of June 2024), including annual open reservations.
The deposit will be refunded under condition that the student has completed all the due housing payments and that he/she has no debts towards Bocconi University or the residence management. In addition, in case the student will not take in charge the possible restoration costs for damages made to the structures of the residence or for recovery of sanitary and general conditions of the room, the housing deposit will also be used for covering the related expenses.
When foreseen, the housing deposit refund will be made on a bank account in the student’s name that he/she will need to register on Punto Blu >Home > Personal data > Data Bank Account (Refunds).
The security deposit will NOT be refunded and will be kept as a penalty deposit in case of withdrawal from the housing assignment.
The security deposit will NOT be refunded in cases of housing renunciation not substantiated by the specific academic reasons provided for the acceptance of the request for withdrawal. More details on this page of the website
The security deposit will NOT, moreover, be returned in cases of revocation and cancellation of housing assignment.
Note: if the bank details are not entered when the refund request is processed, the Office will check the possibility of refunding the student on the University Card (if active) or the student will have to wait for the next refund request processed by the office, generally in the following 2 months.
Tip: If more than two months have passed since the end of your assignment, it is possible that your security deposit has been refunded to the University Card. Check with Banca Popolare di Sondrio to see if the card is active and if you have received a credit.
