If the applicant does not get an apartment, the application is
put in a queue (in the same order as we receive them) for
vacant apartments. The application is valid for two months
and the applicant has to report to the student housing office if
he/she wants it to be valid for another two months. You also

priority to the following applicants:
1) Foreign students
2) New students (students who have not lived in our
student housing before) have priority over students who
have not renewed their agreements
3) Students who live far from Ekenäs

the solution and wipe the walls, the sides of the cupboards
and the floor in the recess where the cooker usually stands.
At this point it would also be advisable to wipe the surfaces
of the cooker hood.
- When the oven cleaning agent has had its effect, it is removed from the oven and the cooker according to the instructions. Wipe the surfaces with a cloth dampened with
clean water. Wipe the sides of the cooker, the surfaces in
front of it as well as the temperature knobs for the hot
plates. Push the cooker back to where it was.

the grill (use an old washing-up brush).
Condition of the apartment
Complaints about the condition of the apartment (e.g. broken
furniture, possible water leakage or construction defects)
have to be reported without delay (within 3 weeks from
moving in) to the landlord or housing office. Remarks about
the cleaning have to be made immediately.
All remarks are to be filled in in a ’notice of defect’ form and
handed to the student housing office. The defects will be
marked down in the room card.
The apartment is to be kept tidy and clean. You are not
responsible for normal wear and tear, but you are obliged to
compensate the landlord if you cause any damage.
Cleaning the oven and the cooker
Clean the oven immediately when it has cooled down after
you have been using it. If the dirt is ingrained you need a
special oven cleaning agent in order to get it properly
TIP: use oven paper, roasting bags and baking plates when
you cook so that the oven does not get dirty. Prepare the
food in ovenware which is large enough so that the food does
not boil over.
Checklist for moving in
Fix the advice of rent security
to confirm your stay
Read the enclosures and sign
the lease agreement
Collect your key
Report to the housing office if you notice any defects in
the apartment
Read through the housing guide!
Make a ’change of address notice’ to the post office
and/or Local Register Office. Make sure that the address
has a legible apartment number!
Also check these things when you move in:
- Has someone smoked in the apartment?
- Are all the sockets functioning and intact?
- Do all the lamps function?
- Do the fridge, cooker, oven and microwave (if there is
one) work?
- Are there any bigger scratches, spots or dents on the
walls, ceiling, floor or doors?
- Is the handbasin ok?
- Is there a leakage in the toilet or any of the taps?
- Make sure all the furniture is intact
- Clear the area in front of the window so that it is easy to
open it. Cover the floor and the radiator under the window
with a floor-cloth.
- Mix some washing-up liquid (NOT TOO MUCH) into a bucket
of water. Wipe the window frames with a damp cloth.
Wet the window cleaner and start cleaning the window panes.
Start with the lower-most ones. Wipe the window panes with
the squeegee. You can use horizontal or vertical movements
across the window pane. Continue by washing the following
window panes. Every now and then wipe the rubber part of
the squeegee with a towel.
- Let the windows dry before you close them.
- Remove the covers from the radiator and the floor and, if
necessary, wipe them. Remember also to check that water
has not trickled on the walls.
You must not:
do any repairs, paint the walls or make any other
nail things to or drill the walls. If you want to make your
room more cosy you can hang e.g. pictures from the

smoke in the apartment
Cleaning materials:
mild disinfectant
dust brush and dustpan or vacuum cleaner
dust cloth
toilet brush
- When cleaning, make sure that no electronic devices in the
wet facilities are connected to electric outlets.
- Put the towels and, when needed, the shower curtain (if it is
machine washable) in the laundry basket.
- Vacuum.
- Start cleaning by taking the rugs out. Beat or vacuum them
and let them hang outdoors to give them an airing while you
clean. Also take your bedclothes outdoors.
- Vacuum the floor, all the corners and the baseboards. Also
vacuum your mattress.
- Wipe all plane surfaces with a dust cloth which has been
dampened with cleaning agent. Wipe also knick-knacks, the
TV screen, etc. The cloth should not be too damp when you
wipe electronic appliances.
Saving energy is not only sustainable and eco-friendly living,
it is also about saving money. Unnecessary consumption and
increasing energy costs have an effect on the rents. To make
noticeable improvements you do not have to lower your
standard of living, only change your habits.
Energy saving tips for your home:
- Mop the floors with a damp mop or floor-cloth.
- Throw away old food from the fridge and wipe the surfaces.
- Dust or vacuum the radiators.
- Clean the waste bin and the area around it.
Cleaning the windows
Turn off the lights and turn off electrical
equipment when they are not in use.
Replace old light bulbs with energy saving lights.
Do not let the water run unnecessarily. Take a
quick shower or turn off the tap while shampooing
your hair.
Immediately report if you notice a leaking toilet or
Do laundry only when you can fill the entire
wash ing machine
Open the windows for ventilation only for short
peiods of time
Sort your waste and recycle (more on page 24)
Take your recyclable bottles back to the shop
As to the weather, choose a suitable day when
cleaning the windows. If the day is too hot and sunny,
the cleaning agent dries and gets stuck to the window
pane before you can wipe it off. If the temperature is below
zero, it will get cold inside and in addition to this you will need
anti-freeze agents (sinol) when cleaning the windows. The
most suitable weather is mild or warm, but not too windy.
Cleaning materials:
washing-up liquid (two drops), bucket
window opener
clean cloth or window cleaner
Squeegee cloth
Apartment interior
It is up to you how you decorate your own apartment, but
there are still some rules you have to follow. No bigger
changes are to be done without the landlord’s permission,
such as painting and repairs. To avoid damage to the walls
there is a wooden frame on the wall from wich you can hang
e.g. pictures. Do not move out any of the original furniture.
Balconies and windows
Balconies are to be kept tidy and during the winter the snow
is to be swept away. Do not wash the balcony with running
water. Grilling is unfortunately prohibited. You may not dust
rugs or have e.g. bedclothes hanging from the rail. Do not
throw garbage from the balcony. You are responsible for
adjusting the window ventilation in the window frame
according to season (winter-closed/summer-open)
Bikes are not to be stored in the corridors for safety reasons.
Leave them in the bike stand or in the storage room.
Car heaters
You are not allowed to warm up your car by having a cable
plugged in from your apartment. There are some poles for
car heaters at Raseborgsvägen 9 for rent.
Common facilities
The common facilities should be used only for their purpose.
Remember to leave the room in the same condition as when
you arrived.
This also applies to the laundry room. Clean up spilled
detergent, empty the water containers in the driers and
empty the dust filter after use.
The tenants are coresponsible for conducting the common
facilities, furniture as well as the equipment. They are obliged
The purpose of the cleaning is to maintain a good level of
cleanliness in the apartment and to prevent the surfaces from
becoming ingrained. The tenant is responsible for the cleanliness of the apartment in accordance with the lease agreement.
If you do not take care of the cleaning of the apartment, this
can cause you expenses at the latest when you move out
from the apartment and the condition of the apartment is
checked. If the apartment is not in a good state, the cost of
cleaning and repair will be covered by the tenant. The apartment is checked by qualified personnel, and the condition of
the apartment is documented, if needed also by taking pictures.

doors are to be kept closed for fire safety. There
are automatic fire alarms in all rooms in both buildings,
reacting to smoke, temperature, dust and steam. You must
not touch the fire alarm.
Fire alarms
Remember to use the fan when e.g. cooking, because the fire
department is automatically alarmed if the fire alarm goes off.
At the same time you will hear an alarm in the building. If you
bring about a false alarm you will be liable for paying
damages. As you hear the fire alarm you must evacuate the
building immediately. Familiarize yourself with the evacuation
plan for your building. You will find more information about
fire safety on the notice boards. Keep the filter in the cooking
hood clean, because grease will make the fan ineffective.

All front doors are locked. Use your own key to move around
in the building. If there is anything wrong with your key,
contact the housing office.
Furniture in common facilities
The furniture in the common facilites should not be moved
without permission of the landlord.
In every apartment at Ladugårdsgatan 9 there is a fuse box
on the wall. If a fuse blows you can replace it yourself. There
is also a fuse box in every apartment at Raseborgsvägen 9.
You will find it behind the hangers in the hallway. Remove
the shelf to open the box.
Housing supplement
If you are granted housing supplement, remember that one
month of housing supplement (e.g. during summer) equals
one month of study grants as you calculate the maximum
time for study grants. Get more information from FPA/KELA

insure your personal property. The landlord is not responsible
for e.g. a lost bike, not even if it has been in one of the
storage rooms.

a notice of one month. The notice has to be made in written
form and submitted to the housing secretary. You can find

lease agreements expire. You should still fill in a form with a
notification of change of address to the housing secretary.
This applies to all tenants

rooms. In the folder for reservations you can book a time for
you in advance. Do not book the washing machines for a
longer time than you actually need. Remember that your
neighbours also want to wash their clothes and you probably
do not need five machines at the same time. Also remember
to cancel the reservation if you are not going to use it. Your
time will be cancelled if you have not shown up within 15
minutes after your time starts.
Empty the machines as soon as possible when the program is
finished! If you use the tumble dryer you have to clean the
filter and empty the water after every use. Turn off the machine and turn off the water tap when you
finish washing.
