Damage Deposits

The SiPN’s program deposit will serve both as proof of your commitment to the program (which reserves you a spot) as well as a residence damage deposit

SiPN has negotiated a special damage deposit fee for our students of  350 USD, and if no damages are assessed to your room by the residence, then that amount will be returned to you in full within 45 days after your check-out inspection.

Damage assessments will be detailed and furnished to each student individually by the Residence. Students who are held liable for damages over this security deposit are responsible for restituting FLAD/SiPN in full before receiving their academic transcripts.

Multicultural environment

SiPN’s primary residence is international, mixing Erasmus students from all over the globe as well as Portuguese university students from outside the capital. This provides for a truly cross-cultural living arrangement that will expand your horizons and circle of friends!
