Room & Kitchen

The room is 19 m2 and is leased unfurnished.

The resident is responsible for equipment found in the room. The resident can therefore become accountable for vandalism.

You are required to examine your room immediately after moving in. If you find any damage, defects or absences you must report these immediately to the inspector in room 127. If this is not done, the resident risks becoming economically responsible for the damage.

Likewise, damage done to the room or installations must immediately be reported to the inspector. If the damage, according to the inspector’s evaluation, has been done intentionally or negligent, repairs will be done at the expense of the resident.

It is worth noting that the rooms can become rather hot during the summer. However, it is NOT allowed to hang additional things up in the window to protect from the sun, aside from the curtains already present. This is because it may cause the windows to break.

Kitchen

On every floor there are 3 shared kitchens. A- and C-kitchens are similar in size while B-kitchens have an extra room. There are two stoves and fridge-freezer-space to each resident.

  • Rooms 31-47 belong to the A-kitchen.
  • Rooms 1-4, 22-30 and 48-52 belong to the B-kitchen.
  • Rooms 5-21 belong to the C-kitchen.


All kitchen appliances have been renewed within the last 5 years, if they malfunction contact the inspector. 25 DKK of the rent goes to the residents’ union. From here 170 DKK is granted to each kitchen every month. This money may be used to buy durable consumer goods, such as TVs, furniture, dinner sets, microwave etc.

The receipt for these products is delivered to the Residents’ Council’s (Beboerrådets) letterbox in the basement, along with a description of the purchase and at least 3 signatures other than the person who purchased the item(s). Name, room number and kitchen must clearly be readable on all signatures. The cashier will regularly, through notices, inform the residents about the state of their kitchen’s account. Usually each kitchen also has a cash box to which each resident pays a monthly amount. This money is used to cover shared things such as dish soap, tin foil, spices etc. What the money covers and how much each resident pays per month, varies a lot from kitchen to kitchen. To use the common kitchen, it is advised to pay to a
cash box.


Cleaning

It is the residents themselves who are in charge of cleaning their own room, bathroom, corridor and windows. Cleaning of the shared rooms is to some extent taken care of by a staff hired to do so. The residents are obligated to participate in cleaning of the kitchens and to clean up after themselves. Is this not done, complaints may be directed to the Residents’ Council.

The linoleum floor must not be cleaned with acid or siphoning liquids and scratching cleaning preparations. All drains must be kept clean. It is not allowed to throw sanitary towels, cotton, wool and such in the toilet, since these may block the drain. Remember to air out frequently, but for a short period – especially after taking a shower. Turn off the heat while you are airing the room.

Painting

If you wish to paint your room you must get the inspector’s approval beforehand. The inspector will inspect your room both before and after the work is done.

If a majority of a kitchen’s users wish to do so, they can choose to paint the kitchen themselves. Money for this can be found on a maintenance account, so the inspector should be contacted beforehand, since the amount of money on this account decides whether the kitchen can be painted or not. The residents have to lay out the money for paint themselves. If the inspector approves the work, the residents may then get the money for the paint refunded.
