Furniture

The tenant is responsible for keeping the rom (and its furniture) clean during the whole lease and for leaving it clean for the new tenant.

Deficiencies regarding the inventory must be reported to the KI Housing office. When a student is leaving, damaged and/or missing items will be replaced and charged to the tenant.

Bedlinen

The rooms are equipped with mattress, mattress cover, quilt and pillow. Please note that you need to bring your own bed linen and towels.

Internet

Broadband is installed in all student rooms and a LAN cable marked “KI cable” is provided. You may start using Internet as soon as you arrive. However, please note that you must register on a portal provided by Bredbandsbolaget to be able to use the internet service. At this link you can download an internet guide. Note that there is no WiFi in the building. If you want to have wireless internet, you must buy your own router.

Please note that several KI Housing tenants have had problems with registering from time to time, sometimes it can take up to several weeks to get it fixed. If you experience problems, please submit a maintenance request at this link. A mobile broadband can be bought in any mall if you need to access Internet before the problem has been solved.

TV/Cable TV

The dorm rooms are not equipped with TV-sets. If you decide to buy a TV, you will have access to the Swedish network. However, note that anybody possessing a TV-receiver has to pay a TV-fee to Radiotjänst.

Common kitchens

There is a kitchen in each corridor with stoves, refrigerator and freezer. The kitchen is furnished with tables and chairs. Every student has one cupboard, one shelf in the fridge and half a shelf in the freezer.

The kitchens in KI Housing corridors have basic kitchen equipment such as microwaves, hot water kettles, pots and pans. The tenants in SSSB corridors are responsible for bringing their own kitchen utensils (sometimes kitchen utensils are left by previous tenants but we cannot guarantee it).

Common areas – code of conduct

Anyone using our common kitchens is responsible for keeping them clean and leaving them in good order after use. Please see this link for information about our rules and regulations that you as a tenant must follow and refer to.

General facts

Cleaning equipment

Cleaning equipment is available in all corridors.

Garbage disposal

You can throw domestic waste in any of the three waste containers by the parking lot, outside of Emmylundsvägen 3. Domestic waste should be thrown in tightly sealed plastic bags.

There is a recycling station for glass, metal, newspapers and cardboards outside Emmylundsvägen 3 and beside the building at Emmylundsvägen 1. For most types of cans and bottles bought in Sweden you receive a refund at the grocery stores.

The entrance of the facility for bulky garbage is found on the front of Emmylundsvägen 3.

For further information about the garbage disposal in our areas and waste separation guidelines, we refer to the information written at this link.

Laundry room

The laundry room is located on the ground floor. Use your electronic key for booking and entering the laundry room.

Electronic key system

The common areas (e.g. the laundry room, kitchen and entrance) are fitted with electronic keys for a safer living environment and to reduce the risk of vandalism. All use of electronic keys is registered and SSSB may make use of this information in connection with acts of e.g. vandalism in the property. SSSB can also block a key in case you lose it, thereby preventing unauthorized entry. Each electronic key is personal and directly linked to the room. Never exchange keys with your neighbor or lend one to someone not authorized to use it since you will be held responsible if anything should happen.

Mailboxes

In Pax, all mailboxes are located beside each corridor and we ask you to write your name on the box. Note that you must buy a padlock for your mailbox as the mailboxes are equipped with padlock fittings. If you want to buy your padlock in Sweden, they can be found in a number of stores, such as hardware stores and larger grocery shops.

If you receive a parcel too large to fit in the mailbox, you will get a notification from the post office telling you where to pick up the parcel.

Bike storage

There is a bicycle room in each building (at Emmylundsvägen 1 and 3).

Smoke detectors

The rooms are equipped with smoke detectors. KI Housing checks the detector between tenants and the tenant is responsible for notifying us of any deficiency of the detector during the tenancy. If you hear a beeping sound, the battery of the detector needs to be exchanged. Please remove it and submit a maintenance service request at this link.

Fire safety

Every single room, common kitchen and common corridor in Pax is a separate fire cell. To prevent spreading any smoke or fire all doors must be kept closed. It is the responsibility of every tenant to see that the doors are kept closed between the different areas.

For information about the fire safety in our areas, we refer to the information written at this link.
