  • In order to avoid disturbing others, please use headphones when listening to music, or keep the volume low, and please keep your voices down.
  • Remember that you are not on a college campus and not in your own home. Respect the property and avoid the American “college campus” mentality.

Utilities and use:

  • Heating and air conditioning should be used sparingly, and do not adjust the thermostat. Don’t leave heating or air conditioning units on while you are not in the room. If you must have them on when you are sleeping, keep them low.
  • Always turn off the lights when you are not in the room.


  • You should lock your door at all times. Also, when leaving the room, make sure your windows are closed and locked. Neither your university nor the accommodations will not be responsible for stolen items.
  • It is strictly forbidden to throw any object or substance from windows, balconies, terraces or roofs. This includes keys, cigarette butts or anything else big or small.

  • Smoking is not allowed anywhere inside the facilities.
  • The consumption of drugs, as well as keeping or dealing with them, is absolutely prohibited
  • No overnight or non-authorized guests are permitted
