Check-out Rules and Regulations

  • Check-out should be initiated by the student or resident within 04.30 p.m on the last day of elective rotation, which should fall on a weekday (Monday to Friday).
  • Every student or resident is NOT allowed to check out from the room on weekends as there are no officers on duty to facilitate the check-out process and inspect for any any damage, removal, or loss to the room.
  • As we are aware of any inconvenience that may occur in the case of a night departure flight, or an extended stay in Bangkok during the weekend, we can help sort out this problem by finding and reserving affordable off-campus accommodation nearby the Faculty as needed on a case-by-case basis.
