During Quiet Hours it is each resident’s responsibility to be certain that no noise can be heard outside of her/his room/suite or in neighboring rooms, halls, shared common spaces, or outside of the building.
Quiet Hours -from 10pm to 7am

If student works late and he/she comes into the dormitory late, he/she should refrain from noisy activity in whole residence hall and respect other students who are studying or sleeping.


Please be mindful of others sharing the common kitchen space, and use your common sense in helping us keep the area clean and functional.

Here are also some basic courtesy rules to follow so we can keep the kitchen space running smoothly.

  • ① Read and follow all signs in the kitchen.
  • ② Wash all dishes that you use, but do not leave them lying in the sink.
  • ③ Clean up any spills on tables and counter tops.
  • ④ Wipe out the microwave after use particularly if your food splattered inside.
  • ⑤ If you use a sponge, please rinse it out before putting it away.
  • ⑥ Sponges are to be used only for dishes.
  • ⑦ Throw away or recycle any wrappers, containers, peelings etc. that you no longer want.
  • ⑧ Do not leave leftovers on counter tops. Please label (food sticker), date, and put away anything you wish to keep in pantry/refrigerator.
  • ⑨ Respect other people’s labeled foods.
  • ⑩ Anything that is left out unlabeled will be considered to be common property, and may be consumed or thrown away.

  • ⑫ During COVID19 situation, we recommend that less 5 people should use the kitchen at one time and sit in space at tables.
The 2nd Wednesday is the cleaning day for fridges.

Let’s ensure we don’t have a skunky fridge with forgotten food in there for weeks.

If you don’t want something thrown out, please leave a post saying “버리지 마세요.” on the item and put the food sticker of the month. The food stickers of the month are prepared at near the window of the security office all year long.

Personal Property

Ajou University dormitory will not be responsible for any loss or damage to personal property stored or left on dormitory premises..

Thou shall not steal.

Lunch theft may seem like to be small potatoes, but in a communal environment, it’s a big deal. He/She that will steal an egg will steal an ox is being an aphorism.

Never take anyone else’s lunch or stuffs knowingly without asking. (We have CCTVs everywhere. If the person who was stolen the food or stuff wants to find the guy who got his/her belongings, the guy can be a criminal. Even though it was a mistake, you may not be forgiven. This is applied for Article 5 and the consequence is eviction from dormitory, and never come back. )

If you see something running out (paper towels, sponges soap, etc.),
please ask cleaning staffs for them.
