Like students at the University of Iceland know, the University buildings are closed, but we contact those who need to sign leases and pick up keys (between 10-12 at Eggertsgata 6). Keys can be returned through a hatch on the door at The Property Management. As before, you can reach us via email and phone.
In response to the situation created by the pandemic Covid-19, FS Student housing will temporarily reduce educational progress requirements. At the end of the academic year, fall 2019 - spring 2020, it is enough for those who are seeking continued residence to demonstrate that they have completed 20 ect units in total, for autumn 2019 and spring 2020 and show that studies will be conducted in the autumn of 2020. In addition, the rules on maximum residence time will not be followed now in the spring 2020.
Those who suffer temporary loss of income due to the circumstances will be given the flexibility to pay 75% of the rental price until June 30, ie. rent in April, May and June. Previous due dates will go the traditional way through the billing process. Those who opt for this recourse must have paid their outstanding debt on June 30, 2020 before commencement of lease agreement renewals. The termination notice remains unchanged.
With this decision the board of Icelandic student services is temporarily relieving full rent payments due to the circumstances.
