Living environment

As a tenant in any of our accommodation options there are certain aspects that must be taken into account in order to create a happy and safe living environment.

Respect your neighbors and keeping it clean

One of the most important things is to respect neighbors and room-/corridor mates, as well as future tenants, for instance by keeping the room/apartment and common areas clean. Inspections are carried out and you are expected to keep a good level of cleanliness at all times. The common areas, such as kitchens or laundry rooms, are responsibility of all tenants using them and it is not uncommon to use a rolling schedule to take turns having the main responsibility for the cleaning during a week. Talk to your neighbors to see how you can organize this in the best way.

Another important way of showing respect is keeping the noise down. In Sweden a general rule is that there should be no noise between 10 pm and 7 am. If you are having friends over, please be understanding and respectful if a neighbor asks you to keep it down.

Recyclable packaging or household waste

Trash must be taken out regularly (once a week) and must not be stored in the room, apartment, corridor or hallway. This creates a poor living environment and hygiene and it also blocks escape routes, in case they are needed. In most areas there are bins for household garbage such as food waste, but for packaging such as plastic, metal, glass, cardboard and newspapers there are usually particular recycling rooms. It is appreciated that you recycle as much as possible. No trash should be left outside a bin, as this attracts vermin.

If something breaks

If something breaks in your accommodation it is important that you make a fault report  immediately, so that the caretakers can fix it and the accommodation can work optimally.
