Extract – Amended version of 13 December 1995

Altenbergerstraße 74, 4040 Linz

§ 1

(1) Each resident is obliged to open an account. The home contribution is debited at the beginning of each month from this account in advance, electricity and any other claims. The home price is fixed by the board of the student support association in Linz as a non-profit carrier company according to § 13 StEG, BGBl. 1986/291, at the beginning of each academic year.

(2) Without prejudice to the provisions of the Home Rule, the board of the Heimträberereinsins is entitled to proceed with the withdrawal of the home place in the event of an unsubstantiated payment balance of more than 4 weeks. Residues of more than 8 weeks will be automatically transferred to the legal representative of the home to submit the claim.

§ 2

(1) Each resident has the rights and obligations stated in the StHG § 6.

(2) Each resident has to behave in such a way that other residents are not disturbed.

(3) From 22.00 to 6.00 clock must necessarily rest night. Rest disturbances during this period are considered a gross offense against the home community.

(4) Community facilities such as washing machine rooms, indoor and buffet areas are available to the residents free of charge. They must, however, ensure that these facilities are kept in a proper condition. The use of the lecture room and the seminar rooms requires special permission from the management.

(5) Community events, which in principle can take place only in the Community areas, require the approval of the home management. In agreement with the home speaker, this also determines the duration of the event. The responsible house staff is to be informed of this in a timely manner. All used premises are to be brought by the organizers until 6.00 am in the morning to a condition, which ensures a normal cleaning.

§ 3

(1) Non-residents shall not be allowed to stay in the home without the express permission of the management. Contraventions shall be reported to the floor speaker or the home management. In the case of a violation of this provision, the homeless person receiving the home loses the home position in the event of a repeat.

(2) It is expressly forbidden for the residents to pass on their rooms to third parties or to rent them in whole or in part. Contraventions lead to exclusion from the home.
