Disturbance

You must show your neighbors respect if you live in an apartment. The general rule is that you should never disturb your neighbors – neither in the daytime or at night. You never know who has their most important exam the next morning. Between 22:00 (Friday, Saturdays and public holidays at 24:00) and 08:00 the rule of thumb is that one should lower the music volume, stop drilling, sawing or anything else that is loud.

Keep in mind that the person who signed the lease is responsible for their visitors following the rules as well. This applies in the corridor, stairwell, and common areas.

If someone called Störningsjouren they will do the following graduation of the disorder when they arrive:
1. a normal tone/soft music.
2. Slightly higher than normal
3. Clearly disturbing, passed the limit
4. Very high
5. The walls shake, outrageously high.

The following rules apply for Störningsjouren (disturbance call). (For the tenant making the disturbance)

Disturbance grade 1. The tenant will be contacted by the landlord.
Disturbance grade 2. The tenant will receive a written warning and if the same tenant gets two warnings within 3 months they have to pay 1000 SEK.
Disturbance grade 3-5. The tenant must pay for the visit from Störningsjouren, 1000 SEK. The tenant who within 3 months get charged for SEK 2,000 will risk being laid off from their apartment at the 3rd charge.

Electricity and water

Electricity and water are included in your rent. Together with SACR (the student association), we have an agreement to reduce electricity and water consumption. Reduced consumption is good for both the environment and your finances since we might not need to increase the rent.

Emergencies

For eg if the water is rising in the floor drain, the water pipe is broken or the power is cut, always call:

0176-28 61 00 during opening hours Monday – Friday
0176-28 61 01 at other times

Exemption from your studies 

You can apply for and be granted an exemption from the study requirement for a maximum of 12 months if your intention is to start studying again. At attested long illness exemption is in general allowed from the study requirement for up to two years.

Fire Alarm/Smoke Alarm

For your safety, there is a smoke detector installed in your apartment, always test the alarm when you move in! There should be a red light flashing, report a fault directly if it’s not working. On Kaserngatan 3-6 & 8 and Vilhelm Mobergs gata there’s a battery in the alarm, we’ll replace them if the battery is depleted when you move in. Besides that, you’re responsible for battery replacement. On the other addresses, the smoke detectors are connected to the electrical system, this is an emergency alarm and is not linked to the rescue. In the case of fire call 112, in the case of false alarm call 0176-28 61 00.

Fire safety

Fire extinguishers can be found in the corridor. Your apartment is built to withstand a fire outside your apartment for 30 minutes. If the corridor is filled with smoke, it is safer to remain in the apartment and wait for the emergency services. Call 112 and inform them that you are still in your apartment. You may not store anything in the hallways or stairwells since these are escape routes!

Furniture

If you choose to rent your apartment furnished it includes the following furniture;
Bed, mattress, mattress covers, bedside tables, kitchen table with two kitchen chairs, desk with office chair, armchair and coffee table, curtain rod and lamps.

You are responsible for the furniture, and keeping it undamaged.

Guest room

When you receive a visit from relatives or friends we recommend you to visit http://www.svetur.se/en/Roslagen/ for more information about Accommodations in Norrtälje and Roslagen in general.

Internet

Each apartment has broadband (wi-fi as well) 100/100 through Telia. In the information booklet you get with your contract you’ll find instructions how to connect to the internet.

On Kaserngatan 12 there’s also wi-fi in the communal kitchens.

Home insurance 

You can choose which company to have your home insurance through. We can not emphasize the importance of having a home insurance enough. Since you are responsible for the insurance coverage and for example cause water damage, you will be liable and it can cost you a lot of money. If you have a home insurance you only pay the deductible.

Housing allowance

Do you know that you as a student have the opportunity to seek housing allowance? Contact The Swedish Social Insurance Agency (Försäkringskassan) for more information, visit their website.

Invoice 

Did you loose your invoice? No problem, just pay the rent to one of these accounts: Plusgiro 69 34 08-7 or Bankgiro 677-8351. You must use these account numbers to avoid having to fill in the OCR number. Specify which month it concerns and your apartment number (our item number) on the payment form or in the message line if you pay online. The last day to pay the rent is before the last working day of each month.

Keys and locks 

You get two keys to your apartment when you move in. The keys are either a steel key, card or tag. It’s because our houses have different locking systems. If it’s required to have a separate key to the mailbox you’ll find it hanging in your apartment. If not you open your mailbox by placing the key tag in front of the round surface at the mailboxes. To enter the stairwell, add the key card/tag in front of the reader, you can also dial the access code you received in the information along with your contract.

Keys and lock – Albert Engströms gata 10, 12 & 14

Before you try to unlock your apartment door, give it a small push. This makes sure that the bolt is in the right position. If not, an overload protection in the lock will be activated. This means that your door won’t be able to unlock. When you lock the apartment from the outside all the electricity, not fridge/freezer and the wall outlet marked ”bryts ej”, turns off and the entire apartment becomes dark. This is a way to save electricity, so only lock the door from the outside if you are the last person to leave.

 

  • If someone is in the apartment, never lock the door from the outside.
  • The last one to leave needs to press the button to activate the lock function, which is located by the door. When you have closed the door, add the key tag – the door is now locked.
  • You can always lock the door from the inside without affecting the electricity saving system.

If you have a problem with your electricity or door lock call our fault report 0176-28 61 00 during office hours, at other hours call 0176-28 61 01

Locked yourself out?

We will help you free of charge if you lock yourself out during office hours. After office hours our security company can help you. Then the cost is 500 SEK (cash only and you also get a receipt). Need help during office hours call 0176-28 61 00 otherwise call 0176-28 61 01
