The Residents' Council


The residents’ council consists of three to eleven residents. Election of the council members happens at the resident meeting during spring, and the election period last two years. The residents’ council handles the dormitory and represents the residents’ interest, which includes new initiatives, facilities, and handling resident complaints. Furthermore, the council also ensures the general condition of our facilities.

Besides the practical tasks, the council also hosts multiple events throughout the year, such as Sankt Hans, New Year’s Eve, Christmas Dinner, NORK-LAN and summer gatherings.

The residents’ council’s economy is based on a monthly contribution, which is payed through the rent. The amount of the contributions depends on the residency. 1-room apartment pays 15 DKK, while 1½- and 2-room apartments pays 25 DKK. The contributions cover maintenance of our current facilities, as well as paying for new equipment and social events.

The council’s cashier is also elected during the resident meeting, and they are responsible for the council’s economy. This may consist of a maximum of 25.000 kr. Any possible surplus (Minimum 3000 kr.) is deposited on an account at our administrators, DEAS. This account is meant for large transactions and is used only by the permission of both the cashier and the current chairman. The financial accounting covers a year, with a halfway accounting, which ends at the 30th of June. At the resident meetings two accountants will be chosen to revise the financial accountings. The accountants must be given access no later than a month after the end of the financial year, and they in turn have a month to revise the accountings.

The residents are represented in the directors’ board by two resident council members, usually the chairman and vice chairman. Beside the residents’ members the board of directors consists of agents from colleges, the local business communities and public administration. The board handles the administration of the dormitory. The board host two meetings yearly, as well as an accountant meeting during autumn, and a budget meeting during spring.

Resident Meetings

The resident meetings have the highest authority at our dormitory, and functions as the general assembly. The residents meeting is hosted twice a year, once in spring, and once in autumn. The purpose of the meetings is to inform the residents on the current state of affairs, as well as discussing any further developments. During the meeting a representative from DEAS will present the dormitory budget and accountings. During the spring meeting the residents’ council is constituted. The resident has the possibility of presenting any agendas or problems during the resident meetings. Any issues that a resident wish to present must be presented for the residents’ council at least five days before the resident meeting. During the meetings it possible to make changes to the current code of conduct (House Rules).
