Student Everyday Life

They say a student isn’t real without having lived in a dormitory at least for a week. Because where else can you get life lessons of communicating with different people and become a self-organized person?

Here, in the dormitory, there is no such thing as private life. There is no place you can stay alone. There are always neighbors in your room, and other people keep bustling outside. In a way, your private life becomes a mere illusion. On the other hand, you are always with your best friends to keep you up any time. Dorm is a school of life!
Room Life
Each dorm room has an area of 18 sq. m. Four students share one room. Usually, there are 2 bunk beds, 3 worktables, one kitchen table (making total of 4 tables), 4 chairs, one for each roommate, 2 double bookshelves, 4 nightstands, 4 built-in wardrobes and 4 built-in shelves for personal stuff. All this furniture has to be provided by hostel administration. Electrical appliances such as fridge, kettle, iron etc. must be bought by the students themselves.
Each student is provided with mattress, pillow, blanket, and linen. The bed linen isexchanged once a month. Besides, every room is given a pair of curtains. Students cover the cost of any necessary repairs by themselves.
Every student can allocate a PC in the room. To access the Internet, students must get local area network first (which is provided by KPI-Telekom), and then choose appropriate rate.
Floor Equipment
There are 2 kitchens on each floor. There are two gas stoves at each of them (ovens are disabled for the sake of security), 2 kitchen tables, and 2 sinks. Kitchens are open 24/7.
Also, there are two basin rooms on the floor. There are 6 lavatories, mirrors, and place to dry clothes in each basin room.
Social Work
Students must work off 20 hours of social work during one year. This work might include cleaning common territory (except toilet), helping administration or student council and so on.
Sanitary State
Every student must keep hostel clean. It’s forbidden to leave any rubbish in public areas. Not following these rules leads to additional hours of social work. Also, student council may apply stronger punishments.
The room also has to be kept clean. Once a month, social worker or student council representatives check the sanitary state of the room. If the state is not acceptable, the students who caused it may be refused in settling the next year. It’s forbidden to keep pets in the room.
