Rules in shared apartment

Living in a shared apartment – common rules

Shared apartment is a community where some rules are made together. A good relationship starts with a presentation; tell the other student who are you and where you come from. Also tell what kind of student life you wish to live.

The responsibility of the shared apartment is shared. If other roommate doesn’t do their chores, it doesn’t give you the right to not do them either. If the other roommate doesn’t do their chores, you should inform KUOPAS.

Animals are only accepted if all the roommates accept them. If someone lefts and the new tenant doesn’t want to live with an animal, the animal must be found a new home. Smoking is not allowed in any of our apartments or balconies.

If you want to invite a person of opposite sex to spend a night in your shared apartment, it must be always be confirmed with other roommates. You can’t invite your friends or partner to spend nights in your shared apartment every week. It is not nice for the other roommates to live with extra persons all the time. You can always have a visitor come by during day time, but please inform and agree with your roommates if you plan to have parties or other larger get-togethers. You should always respect the other roommates and give them the peace to study, if they need it.

What if roommates disagree?

If you have a problem with your roommate, try talking to him/her first. Acting nice always helps! If talking doesn’t help, then you can contact Kuopas’ customer service about the issue.
