Cleaning and Enviroment
You will need to provide your own cleaning products.
SiA expect you to keep your room clean and tidy. If you are sharing bathroom and kitchen with another person, make a rota or schedule for weekly cleaning.
Clean and tidy day-to-day of shared kitchens
Use hot water, soap and new cloths and clean properly as you go, don’t leave pots, plates and cooking stuff to pile up in the sink. Establish some ground rules, and make sure everyone’s on the same page about things like cleanliness, social habits and noise. Make a weekly cleaning rota together with those you share with. Garbage must be taken out every day.
If one of the rooms in your corridor is empty, everyone that shares kitchen, has joint responsibility of cleaning the week that are associated with the empty room.
If you are away for some time, you are responsible for switching your cleaning week with one of your neighbors.
If a kitchen is reported by cleaners to be consistently inaccessible, or if standards of day-to-day cleanliness are below a reasonably acceptable level, SiA may serve notice on the residents, requiring improvement by a specified date.
Bedbugs often accompany you home when you have been travelling. Check your luggage before you bring it into one of our dorms. If you discover bedbugs, you are obligated to contact SiA immediately.
Now and then, pests in general may enter a student housing. To help avoid this, it is important that you keep your room and kitchen clean and tidy. Dry food items should be stored in closed containers. Sort garbage and take the trash out regularly. Change of bedlinen and vacuuming should be done at least every other week. If you detect any pests you are obligated to report it immediately here

When living in a SiA Housing accomodation, follow the recycling instruction. Recycling stations can be found in all of the student housing areas.
