Guidelines for Harmonious Living

| Friday, January 28, 2011 | 8 Comments

As a resident of Glasan student village, you are required to maintain order and cleanliness in their living accommodation. Respect and consideration towards your sharers, along with communication and personal responsibility will allow for harmonious household living. General adherence to the following guidelines is expected of all individuals;

Common areas are for the enjoyment of all tenants – Occasionally prolonged visitors, constant “friends over”, excessive noise, continual or loud talking, music, TV can infringe upon the right to peaceful enjoyment by other tenants. Please give other tenants needs due consideration.

Noise Levels – consideration on noise levels needs to be given to sharers and neighbours who are entitled to adequate time for proper study and sleep. Tenants are expected to refrain from disturbing activities such as loud conversation, shouting, loud music, parties etc. after 11pm. Tenants do not have the right at any time to be so excessively loud that it is unfair disturbance to other residents/neighbours.

Shared bedroom spaces are for the use and enjoyment of those tenants exclusivelyTenants in shared bedrooms should not:

  1. permit others to store belongings in a room shared by tenants
  2. allow others to sleep in a shared room, without prior notice to and mutual consent of other affected,
  3. commit acts necessitating privacy, which would offend other roommates

Housekeepingcleanliness of the house is the responsibility of everyone. Tenants are to keep bathroom, their respective rooms and common areas neat and orderly. All must help to maintain cleanliness. Guidelines;

  • Clear and wash cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment after you, with limited equipment it’s only courtesy to your sharers.
  • Wipe down all surfaces after cooking.
  • If you have had friends over, clean up immediately after them
  • Organise a weekly house clean; floors, bathrooms, Hallways/stairs/landing, kitchen/lounge. This is the fairest way and it will only take an hour tops if everybody helps out!
  • Remove and dispose of refuse regularly. Please ensure materials do not accumulate so as to cause odours, hazards or be in violation of any health, fire or safety regulation.

External Areas – it is your responsibility to keep areas to the front & back of your unit clean and tidy. Please ensure doors, windows are kept clean with foodstuffs washed off. Pathways in front of unit should be swept and back gardens should be litter and debris free.

Positive Communication is the key to trouble free living and a stress free life. If you have a problem, talk to your sharers and seek a resolution – you’ll be surprised how easy it is. If however your efforts prove ineffective, the situation can be brought to the attention of the complex manager
