Location

Our student accommodation Strix is located in a residential area called “Huvudsta” in Solna. You have good access to public transport with the subway and bus stop located nearby.

There are nice walking trails along a lake called Ulvsundasjön, only a few hundred meters from Strix. The lovely neighborhood Vasastan is within walking distance (about 2 kilometers). Vasastan is known for its large selection of restaurants, bars and cafés.

A big shopping mall, Solna Centrum, is also within walking distance (about 1.5 kilometers).

Disturbing construction work

SSSB is building 248 new student homes, divided between two properties adjacent to the existing blocks at Strix. This new construction may be disturbing for tenants staying in Strix. Noisy work will be carried out between 8 AM and 5 PM on weekdays.

Excavation work will take place from April 4 and two months onwards. From time to time, the building site close to your home will be very noisy as some blasting and drilling work will be carried out.

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

The garbage facilities are placed outside the main entrance at Armégatan 32, in a separate house near the parking lot. There are two rooms, one for domestic waste (to be put in tightly sealed plastic bags) and one for heavy garbage.

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

Please note that the waste separation facilities at Strix will be closed during the construction period. SSSB asks you to use the temporary containers where you can throw your household waste and separate the rest into fractions. Note that it will not be possible to throw any bulky waste in the temporary containers during this period.

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 in the basement. 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 Strix, all mailboxes are located in the main entrance and we ask you to write your name on the box.

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 are two bicycle rooms in the building.

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 Strix 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.
