As you are a resident in gender dependant shared housing, which has been designated for a certain number of people, below are the guidelines regarding having house guests:


This is relevant for guests in Europe House and the Lunenfeld-Kunin Residences only.

If you have guests coming to visit you, or are getting a take-away delivered, there is an intercom located at the pedestrian entrance to Europe House and on Pinsker Street for the Lunenfeld-Kunin Residences.
Have your guest dial the last 4 digits of your apartment telephone number (written on the phone), and when you answer, press 8 for a few seconds and it will open the gate for them to enter.

Alarm Call

The telephone in your apartment has the facility to allow you to set an alarm call:
