Common Storage Areas and Storage Bins for Belongings

There are storages dedicated to outdoor equipment, baby carriages and bicycles in every student building. Some of the residential locations have a limited number of wire cages for storing belongings for each residence in the basement or attic.

These areas are not meant for storage of any belongings that may endanger fire safety, such as: mopeds, batteries, fuel, etc. The storage of any loose belongings in other common areas is forbidden, and we also wish that old belongings not be abandoned in common areas. Tenants are responsible for moving any unwanted items. If Kuopas removes any items the owner of the item will be charged for the costs of the moving service.

Club Rooms for Residents

Student buildings have club rooms that are meant to be used for spending time together. Please, contact to Kuopas office if you want to use the club room. In using the club rooms, consideration towards other residents should always be remembered.

The Yard is a Big Co-operative Area

The look of the yard area can be improved by the residents by getting together and arranging work parties. In buying plants, etc. our housing association will definitely be involved along with the tenants.

The upkeep of yards as well as the greens and plantings are taken care of by the maintenance group of the housing association or a maintenance firm. Residents may help with the yard`s upkeep by taking care of their own belongings and by respecting delicate plants, greens, etc.

Your Mail

Depending on the site and the type of building, mail is delivered either directly to the apartment or to a separate letter box.

Moving Around in the Residential Area

Driving and parking on courtyards and walkways with a motor vehicle is prohibited in all cases except when moving in or out. As many yards are very complex in structure and small children are frequent on walkways and courtyards, bicyclists are also to take great care in the residential area. Also, when hauling a moving load, it should be remembered that grassy areas are not driveways and any excess parking disturbs other traffic and maintenance work.

When walking your pet, please consider your neighbours. Droppings are to be picked up.
