A word on multiple occupancy
You are welcome to request double or triple occupancy, even if you do not have a roommate(s) in mind. We will group people accordingly.
Triple occupancy is subject to minimum registration. If you register with a group of three, the minimum is met – you may pay your deposit and the room will be guaranteed (if one is available). If you request triple occupancy without roommates, the room will not be guaranteed until the other beds are claimed. For more information on the particulars of this option, please e-mail .
