Points for Attention of Off-campus Housing

I. Fire Evacuation: Do the landlords provide fire distinguishers or any fire extinguishment equipments? Are the aisles, emergency exits, firebreak alleys windows with iron grating jammed or blocked?

II. Security of Electricity and Gas: Improper uses of electric devises may cause electric fires. As a result, one electric socket can’t be over plugged with devises of high power consumption. Make sure the air ventilation nice and cool around the water heaters and avoid gas leakage caused by pipeline rusty or ruptured

III. Burglar and Access Control: Make sure the gate locked well. Replace the gate lock of the bedroom or have the gate added with bolts. To avoid burglars, remain vigilant and make sure the door and windows fastened (especially at night).

IV. Beware of Pinhole Cameras: Pinhole cameras, smaller than a grain of rice, reflect the light. This makes thorough investigation on the mirror in the bathroom, the furniture in front of the bed and fitting room inevitable if you find unidentified sparks.

V. The Lease: Make sure the lease is reasonably and explicitly contracted to avoid conflicts, such as lease term, deposit, maintenance, the throw of leases and utilities (including phone bill and management fee).

VI. Care of, understand the roommates and build up a nice relation with them. Be aware of whom the roommates entertain with.

VII. Make constant contact with your parents and family members.
