In order to confirm a room reservation, students are required to pay a €500,00 housing deposit as a guarantee of full compliance with all the commitments undertaken when accepting the housing assignment.
The payment of the housing deposit must be carried out by credit card through Paytool as indicated in the message sent after completing a room reservation.
The refund of the security deposit generally takes place within 2 months from the end of the assignment.
The housing deposit will be returned to the student by January 2023, interest-free, and only after the final check-out from the room assigned.
For residual assignments (after January 2023) the housing deposit will be returned within 2 months after the end of the assignment period.
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 housing deposit will not be refunded in case of “termination” of the student’s housing assignment due to lack of the requirements (enrollment in a.y. 2022-23 and possession of the merit requirements, the latter only for students enrolled in years subsequent to the first) which were not verifiable at the moment of notification of the housing assignment, and according to what indicated in the relevant sections of the Housing Application Requirements and Regulations for each housing application.
The housing deposit will not be refunded in case of “early withdrawal” and in case of “early withdrawal due to graduation or internship” and will be withheld as security deposit as a compensation for the right of withdrawal, according to what indicated in the Housing Application Requirements and Regulations.
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.
