"Can I have guests over?" "Can I have a bookshelf?" "Can I hang things with thumbtacks?" In this post, you'll learn the answers to these questions and more, as well as more housing rules you never even thought of. I pulled out my program guide from my last program, to get the rules right from the source. You can also learn more from the onboarding site. (see here) This article will also explain housing inspections.
Attached below is the official list (also available on the onboarding website) of community codes. Included here is a shortened and condensed list of housing rules.
During my program, we had monthly inspections, but there are rumors of that changing soon. You'll receive a one or two week window when people in your complex can expect inspections, but random inspections can happen anytime (though they rarely happen). Below is a list of things they look for in an inspection:
Make sure to take inventory of the condition of your apartment when you move in. You'll be given a kitchen inventory form with spots to mark down anything you notice, even if it's not a big deal to you, mark it down so you don't get blamed for it later. Also, as of spring 2016, light sabers and wands are allowed in housing, cooking knives are always allowed.
