LILA Code of Conduct

General Rules and Regulations

Students must take care to ensure that all doors and windows are kept closed prior to leaving their room/apartment each time they vacate the premises. It is the responsibility of students to keep their bedroom door closed when not present in the apartment.

Students MUST ensure that their property is insured and provide proof, if requested, of said insurance to LILA or its agents.

The agreement of all the persons sharing an apartment is also required. This practice should not occur on a regular basis.

The apartments may be inspected monthly in order to ensure acceptable standards of cleanliness and damage limitation.

Failure to maintain the apartment in an acceptable living condition may lead to a fine or expulsion with immediate effect with no refund of fees or deposit. Kitchens, ovens and bathrooms carry particular health risks of which students must be aware. Damage to walls whether by abuse or hanging of posters or pictures is forbidden.

Damage to any part of the property may result in expulsion with no refund of fees or deposit.
