7 rules of coexistence in a coliving community

In a coliving community, as in all residential areas, there are rules for coexistence that guarantee harmony in the building and the quality of life of the guests. These rules are particularly important because they help to maintain a controlled and pleasant environment for everyone.

When you move into a coliving, the staff will certainly tell you which rules you should follow. However, if you are curious and are already wondering how strict or permissive the rules are in a coliving, we will tell you all about it.

In essence, these rules are not difficult to follow nor do they imply a nuisance in the daily life of the guests. They are really recommendations that everyone should follow in order to maintain a harmonious and comfortable environment.

What are the rules of coexistence in a coliving?

Avoid making loud noises

In a coliving, it is possible that some guests are sleeping, resting and others are working, so it is important to avoid making loud noises. Do not disturb with loud music and avoid having parties, even among the same people in the building, are basic rules of coexistence in a coliving.

Imagine how annoying it would be to be working or studying from your room and hear music coming from the next room. Or the sound of a TV set turned up too loud because your roommate next door is watching a film as if he were in a cinema.

Disturbing sounds can turn a quiet environment into an annoying and unpleasant space, so avoid them at all costs.

Notifying visitors

Visits should be reported both to the coliving management and to your flatmate, if you have one. This way, the administration will allow your guest to enter and your roommate will not feel uncomfortable with a surprise visit.

This rule of cohabitation, besides saving your guest and everyone involved a bad time, also aims to preserve everyone’s safety. Imagine how unsafe and disorganised the building could be if everyone could enter with strangers in an uncontrolled manner.

Taking care of common spaces

A coliving, besides having studios and rooms, also has coworking spaces, a social kitchen and a living room. Each room is equipped with furniture and appliances such as chairs, tables, sofas, induction hobs, ovens, and more.

It is the obligation of the guests to make good use of these spaces as well as the furniture and objects that make up the space. This will allow everyone to enjoy the comforts of coliving.

Pets are not allowed

Although pets are adorable and an excellent companion, in a coliving, pets are not allowed. The main reason is linked to the previous rule and is that pets tend to be playful and may damage the furniture and cause inconvenience to guests.

It should also be considered that pets, especially dogs, make noises that may disturb others. In addition, if they are not properly behaved, they may relieve themselves anywhere in the room or in the common areas of the building.

In general, it can be said that a coliving is not the right place to have pets. The spaces are not adapted for them, nor do those living in the building expect to live with pets.

Keep common spaces tidy

When using common spaces such as the lounge, coworking area or social kitchen, it is important that you take responsibility for any mess you make. Although the building has a cleaning service, leaving a mess in the common areas means inconveniencing other guests.

Therefore, as a sign of respect and consideration for those who will use the spaces after you, it is necessary that you leave the space as tidy as you found it. Having a good experience in the common areas depends to a large extent on the guests themselves for this very reason.

No parties

Parties are the type of event that cause the most noise and disturbance in residential spaces, so in a coliving, parties are forbidden. It is important to clarify that we are referring to the typical parties with guests from outside the building, loud music and a lot of noise.

These events generate a lot of discomfort for the other guests who are trying to rest or work in the peace and quiet of their room. On the other hand, meetings between colleagues in the building are permitted as long as they are held in the common areas during the day, order is maintained and no disturbing noise is generated.

For example, a good meeting in the social kitchen at lunch or dinner time is always welcome. The same goes for meetings in the coworking area or in the shared living room.

In short, the rules of coexistence in a coliving are neither difficult to comply with, nor annoying. On the contrary, they are simple and make it possible to maintain order and harmony in the building on a daily basis.
