ESN FINT offers a starting kit service for it's members, which is perfect for those only staying here for a short time. The kitchen starting kit consists of useful second-hand kitchen utensils, and the bedroom starting kit contains everything you need for a bed, such as pillows and bedsheets. There is a limited number of the sets available, so they may run out if the demand is high.

You can rent a single kit for a 5€ fee and a 20€ deposit. This means that you pay 25€ of which 20€ will be returned to you when you return the kit. If you rent both of the sets at the same time, you only pay one service fee, so the price is 45€ of which 40€ will be returned to you. You can keep the set for anytime between 4-24 months.

Renting starting kits

You can rent starting kits from the ESN FINT clubroom during opening hours at the beginning of the semester. Keep in mind that this service is for ESN FINT members only, so you will first have to register as a member. This service is also cash only!

Returning starting kits

You can return your starting kit to the ESN FINT clubroom during our normal opening hours, which you can find on the front page of our website. Please make sure that the items are in good condition and that nothing is missing when you return them, in order to get your full deposit back.

Legal stuff

Deposit fee: The deposit is returned to the borrower once the items are returned in their initial condition. If the borrower damages, breaks, is filthy or fails to return one or more items, they will lose the deposit associated with those item(s). The price, which will be deducted, is determined by the cost to rebuy a new item. ESN FINT will decide the location of the shop and brand.
