living

Welcome to your new home!

Moving in to PSOAS student housing will most likely signify a great change in your life, especially if you are starting your studies. Don’t start worrying about things beforehand though. Your neighbors will be quite nice and you will surely get along.

The comfortability of the living community and even living costs depend quite a bit on tenant teamwork, courtesy towards others and fulfilling your own duties. When tenants get together to clean up the location and otherwise keep the place clean, maintenance costs are reduced.

The condition of PSOAS’ apartments are checked and maintained continually by inspecting the premises. In addition, short-and long-term maintenance and repair is carried out. The purpose of regular maintenance is to preserve the condition of the equipment in the apartments and to ensure that you continue to find our apartments to your liking. Based on the concept of the whole lifespan of a building, we are trying to prevent the buildings from wearing down in advance.

Remember that the rent that residents pay is used to cover the maintenance costs of the apartments such as water, heating, maintenance and repairs. At PSOAS, students like you decide these matters.

Some rules and regulations have been proposed to ensure that living here is safe. The most significant of these is moving into your apartment, keeping the right to live here, inspection of your apartment and instructions for rules and regulations. These instructions are meant to be complied with and many problem situations can be prevented before they get started by studying them carefully. When you follow these instructions, take care of your apartment and remember that you have neighbors, you will be sure to enjoy living here. Above all, we hope that you feel at home with us from the start.

The purpose of the resident’s guide is to introduce you and your family to your new home, clarify your rights and duties as a tenant and assist you in other living-related matters. The resident’s guide will also give you some hints as to how to ensure that you enjoy living here and how you can affect your rent.  It will also clarify for you how various matters are handled at PSOAS.
