I understand that I must respect the privacy of the other occupants of my apartment or hotel and the other condominium residents, and that excessive noise and unacceptable behavior on the premises may lead to eviction. I further understand that the landlord and the Umbra Institute reserve full license to evict a student for inappropriate behavior, as deemed by the Institute, and if a student is evicted there shall be no refund.
I understand that I am responsible for the condition and cleanliness of the rooms and all other communal areas within the residence, including furniture, equipment and fittings. I am expected to take adequate care of equipment and furnishings and I am responsible for any loss or repairs to items, furnishings and equipment.
I understand that I must permit the housing agency, its servants, maintenance and cleaning crews to enter the apartment at any reasonable time to inspect and/or carry out cleaning or work for any purpose in the furtherance of their responsibilities or duties. Prior notification may not always be possible.
I understand that I will not hold the Umbra Institute liable for personal injury of any kind associated with the apartment, residence, home-stay or other housing I have been assigned.
I understand that I must vacate the premises on or before the date communicated to me by the Institute and that I will leave the premises in the manner in which it was given to me or I may be responsible for cleaning and/or other incurred expenses.
I understand that in leaving my accommodations for any reason at any time before the end of the program I forfeit all housing monies paid.
I understand that ANY charges incurred for any reason while living in any of the assigned housing will be distributed equally among all the occupants unless the individual(s) that incurred such charges take responsibility.
I affirm that I have received and read a copy of the Umbra Institute Quality & Safety Policies included in the green orientation folder. This document is also posted in the Umbra buildings in Piazza IV Novembre 23. I will report any equipment failure or dangerous situation immediately to an Umbra staff member.
I understand that I will respect the other occupants of my accommodation and other condominium residents and their privacy.
I understand that I will therefore refrain from excessive noise after 11pm and unacceptable behavior on the premises.
I understand that for security reasons, and in consideration of others, I may not have overnight guests.
I understand that I will participate in the division and take care of tasks including cleaning, tidying up and other necessary tasks to keep the apartment livable for everybody involved. I understand that this may involve adapting my personal habits.
I understand that I will put in my best effort to live well together with the other students involved and cooperate when any problems/issues amongst us should have to be solved, with or without Umbra’s intervention in the matter.
I further understand that the landlord and the Institute reserve full license to evict a student for inappropriate behavior, as deemed by the Institute, and if I should be evicted there shall be no refund.
Rent and utility expenses, excluding phone charges, are included in the program fee. Students are expected to respect the privilege of this by carefully monitoring the usage of the utilities. The Umbra Institute has allocated a significantly higher amount for utilities coverage – more than 20% above standard. Excessive use of utilities (electric, gas, heat, water) resulting in bills in excess of the allotted amount will result in additional charges which will be distributed equally among the occupants.
I understand that I should not use the telephone, even if there is one available, in the apartment. However, if for any reason I do use the telephone, I will be responsible for my portion of the telephone charges during my stay.
I understand that I will be responsible for my portion of the excess utility expenses including but not limited to electricity, heating, and gas expenses.
I understand that I am responsible for keeping the accommodation clean and tidy as per the landlord’s and Umbra’s minimal cleaning standards. Thorough weekly cleaning of the kitchen includes stovetop, countertops, and floor. Cleaning the bathroom must include keeping the shower drain clear and cleaning the shower/tub, sink, and toilet.
Both kitchen and bathrooms must be cleaned WEEKLY and either Umbra staff or landlords can be expected to stop by at any time during the term. If it’s determined by the Umbra staff that my roommates and I are not able to maintain the apartment according to the aforementioned Umbra standards, a cleaning service will be employed to do so. In this case, I understand that all occupants of the apartment will be charged an equal portion for this professional cleaning service (200€ per apartment).
