It’s important to behave well in the hostel. There are many unwritten rules in the hostel. Maintaining a good environment with others without taking a fight or disrespecting others are beneficiaries. You get what you give. So, it’s better to respect and help others. Here are some points relating to the hostel etiquette that should be followed-
Get your things on your own
Wash your utensils, clothes, keep your room clean without depending on others. Do the chores as and then itself as it hardly takes much 2 to 5 min for a single item. However, it might be a burden later when the clothes or the utensils get collected.
Time sense is a must.
One should know what to do at the right time. For example, keeping the lights low in late-night study, that irritates the other more than expected. Even though with friends, late-night parties keep happening, while your friends are asleep, it’s better to keep the lights off. It’s better to have a torch for emergencies.
Night Whispers are to be kept to a minimum.
Whispers are nasty at late-night times. It disturbs others a lot. Some gossips are best, but not every time. It might scare the other person’s sleep, and if it’s the beginning stage, they would hate to be listening.
Bragging becomes boring
In the beginning, it is good to talk about yourselves and start communication. But bragging about oneself gets boring, and they feel irritated. That shouldn’t be happening. So talk about the memories of that achievement instead.
Check on hostel rules.
Be prompt and be regular in following the rules and regulations of the Hostel. The managers might not like it if there is a disturbance in breaking the rules. Some owners or the managers will be so strict that they’ll remove the students or employees from the hostel if there is any misbehavior or any trouble caused.
Sharing is caring
It is true to not depend on someone all the time, but it is also true that sometimes we need to share our belongings with our friends when they are in need. That’s what friends are for, right? If you help once, they’ll pay back at any other time when you are in need.
Must have earphones.
Earphones can be a lifesaver if you have not made any friends yet. It can heal mentally without disturbing others. You can watch movies or play songs at any time without troubling others while wearing the earphones. It is even better when you have noise-canceling earplugs.
Respect everyone, respect everyone’s choices. People are friendly only when we are within our limits in everything.
