Cleaning and Enviroment
The upkeep of the apartment is down to you and your housemates, so we’d advise keeping to a rota or schedule to stay on top of the mess. To help you keep up a good maintenance, here are some guidelines.
Shared kitchen is the tenants responsibility to keep clean. Clean 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.
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
Smoking inside your room or common room is prohibited in all our accommodations. Our non-smoking policy also includes E-cigarettes and vapes. We ask that all smoking occur at some distance from our buildings, and not at the entrance, terrace or out the window. Violating these rules may result in termination of your rental agreement.

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