With the exception of studio, one bedroom and family houses, all rooms at the University Flats are single occupancy rooms.
For your safety, we have a unique secure key system in place in the majority of our flats. This enables you to open the front door of your flat with the same key as your bedroom. Every key is individually cut and only fits your bedroom door.
Some students will be given two keys, one for the bedroom door and one for the front door.
Our staff will only enter your bedroom, without formal notice or your express invitation, in the case of an emergency.
Subletting your room is prohibited, as is allowing guests to stay in your room if you are absent.
Flat and bedroom allocation is the responsibility of Uni Flats staff, and room changes must have their explicit permission. You will be informed of your room when you arrive in Dunedin.
The actual sizes of the bedrooms vary but all come equipped with the same furnishings.
- Double bed (135cm x 190cm/53in x 72in)
- Bed linen
- Set of drawers
- Desk chair
Power points in your rooms are intended for personal reading lamps, radio, TV, computers and hair dryers only. Any other appliances are not allowed. You must have all electrical items safety tested by University Flats maintenance staff.
As this is your “home away from home” you may put posters on your walls to personalize your bedroom. However, we ask that you use white tack only. The use of drawing pins, blu-tack and/or sellotape on walls is prohibited but can be used on the notice board provided. Any damage caused due to the use of these items will be charged to the resident allocated to that particular room.
Please do not affix anything to doors, ceilings, wood work or light fittings as these pose a fire hazard.
