Three quick questions for our new Residence Representative
Welcome, Alva Carmesund, AF Bostäder's new Residence Representative for the autumn of 2023 and spring of 2024. Here are three quick questions for you!
Question 1: Why did you choose to become the students' elected representative at AF Bostäder?
Answer: During my part-time job as a student employee at AF Bostäder's Service Centre, I realized I wanted to get even more involved in improving students' housing situations.
Question 2: What are you looking forward to the most during your year as a Residence Representative?
Answer: I want to deepen my understanding of what matters to students regarding their housing, both nationally and locally. Additionally, I look forward to contributing to AF Bostäder's operations. Since I began my studies during the COVID-19 pandemic, I also want to explore Lund's student life more and meet people studying various subjects.
Question 3: Do you have any tips for students living with AF Bostäder?
Answer: If you're feeling nervous about your inspection, don't hesitate to talk to your caretaker. All the caretakers I've met are incredibly friendly and helpful. Furthermore, I want to remind all AF Bostäder’s tenants and housing applicants that you can request a semester's Exemption from the study and membership requirements. This can be helpful if, for example, you miss a major exam, need to take a study break, or participate in an exchange program. Lastly, I encourage all students to prioritize their mental and physical health. It's the most important thing of all.
