3. If property is damaged, and a single person can be held accountable, they will be held financially liable for any repairs needed. If this is not the case, residents will be jointly held liable for the damage, unless a resident can document their own absence during the event in which the damage occurred.

4. Hallways and all stairwells act as fire passages and must not be used for waste or storage of items. There must be free passage in all areas at all times.

5. DIS provides cleaning supplies outside the 3rd floor laundry room. You may take these supplies to your room to clean, but you must immediately return them after you are done. Additionally, do not take more than two rolls of toilet paper and one roll of paper towels at once.


C. Standards of Conduct

  • Sunday-Thursday from 22:00 to 8:00.
  • Friday-Saturday from 23:00 to 8:00.

2. Residents are encouraged to notify fellow residents about social gatherings (i.e., posting in the DIS Navigate app to let students know the hours of the gathering and how a resident can contact you if there is a noise complaint).

3. Keep the outdoor areas clean. Do not throw anything on the ground outside.

4. Trash must be disposed of correctly:

  • Trash from your apartment must be disposed of in the dumpster outside the building. Recycling from your apartment should be taken to the recycling bins on Varvsgatan. Residents may not throw their trash/recycling from their apartments into the common room trash bins.
  • Trash bins in the common room may only be used for food/related waste if you were eating in the common room (but remember that it is prohibited to cook in the common room). Liquids must be poured down the sink drain, and not thrown away in the trash bins.
