6 4 Our student housing is primarily for full-time students at Yrkeshögskolan Novia. All the rental agreements are for a fixed term (1 August 31 July) and can be renewed at the tenant s request. This is how we can guarantee housing for a student during the entire study time. Notice that you can not terminate a lease before 31 July. You will get instructions on how to pay the guarantee deposit in connection with a notice that you are offered an apartment. The deposit has to be made like an reservation at your own bank account, and the advice of rent security you will get from your bank you have to leave to housing office. The advice of deposit is returned within a month after you have moved out, unless you have unpaid rents and if the key is returned. 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 have to report if you do not need an apartment so that we can cancel the application. The availability of housing is limited and therefore we give 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 4) Draw, if there are many applicants fulfilling the same criteria Cleaning materials: oven cleaning agent detergent scrubbing brush floor-cloth - Pull the cooker out from its recess. - Cover the floor in front of the oven with a floor-cloth. - Spread oven cleaning agent on the surfaces of the oven, the inside of the oven door and if necessary, also on the cooker.

Cleaning the windows 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: - 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 tap - 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 19 7
