House rules

The college is your home and we therefore depend on each other to make it as cosy as possible for everyone. This means that we need to establish certain ground rules and a framework in order to create a good environment at the college.

The rules are also a part of our efforts to create a harmonious well-functioning environment, to keep the college and its grounds in good condition, thus keeping the maintenance costs as low as possible. Don’t forget that any maintenance that is necessary, including that which is needed due to any damage caused, has to be paid for via the rent.

As a college student at Fortunkollegiet, it is up to you to stay updated via the college’s website and on FB.
