My flatmates never clean our communal area. What can I do?

All flatmates are responsible for keeping the communal areas clean and tidy. First, try to establish a cleaning rota. The rota is the key to working together to keep the place clean. All it takes is four simple steps:

  • Make a list of the regular cleaning tasks that need to be done
  • Decide with your flatmates who’s doing what, and on which day
  • Write each task for each person in the relevant day column
  • Do your tasks on the relevant day, and tick the box when you’re done

If you're still having trouble getting your flatmates to do their part after establishing a rota and speaking to them about it, please speak to your team at reception who will try to help.
