Common kitchens

There is a kitchen in each corridor with stoves, refrigerator and freezer. The kitchen is furnished with tables and chairs. Every student has one cupboard, one shelf in the fridge and half a shelf in the freezer.

The kitchens in KI Housing corridors have basic kitchen equipment such as microwaves, hot water kettles, pots and pans. The tenants in SSSB corridors are responsible for bringing their own kitchen utensils (sometimes kitchen utensils are left by previous tenants but we cannot guarantee it).

Common areas – code of conduct

Anyone using our common kitchens is responsible for keeping them clean and leaving them in good order after use. Please see our information about rules and regulations that you as a tenant must follow and refer to.

Further information about the garbage disposal in our areas and waste separation guidelines.

Laundry room

The laundry room is located on the ground floor. Use your electronic key for booking and entering the laundry room.

Electronic key system

The common areas (e.g. the laundry room, kitchen and entrance) are fitted with electronic key tag readers for a safer living environment and to reduce the risk of vandalism. All use of electronic key tags is registered and SSSB may make use of this information in connection with acts of e.g. vandalism in the property. SSSB can also block an electronic key tag in case you lose it, thereby preventing unauthorized entry. Each electronic key tag is personal. Never exchange keys with your neighbor or lend one to someone not authorized to use it since you will be held responsible if anything should happen.


In Pax, all mailboxes are located beside each corridor. Note that you must buy a padlock for your mailbox as the mailboxes are equipped with padlock fittings. If you want to buy your padlock in Sweden, they can be found in a number of stores, such as hardware stores and larger grocery shops.

If you receive a parcel too large to fit in the mailbox, you will get a notification from the post office telling you where to pick up the parcel.

Bike storage

There is a bicycle room in each building (at Emmylundsvägen 1 and 3).

Smoke detectors

The rooms are equipped with smoke detectors. KI Housing checks the detector between tenants and the tenant is responsible for notifying us of any deficiency of the detector during the tenancy. If you hear a beeping sound, the battery of the detector needs to be exchanged. Please remove it and submit a maintenance service request in the customer portal.

Fire safety

Every single room, common kitchen and common corridor in Pax is a separate fire cell. To prevent spreading any smoke or fire all doors must be kept closed. It is the responsibility of every tenant to see that the doors are kept closed between the different areas.

In case of fire in your room, leave the room and close the door. Call 112. Further information about the fire safety in our areas.
