HallsofResidence

  • perceived as „home“;
  • private space where it is not suitable to restrict the alcohol consumption with regulations,
  • Matter of individual personal freedom

  • It was implicitly clear that alcohol absolutely doesnotbelongbelongs here.
formal rules
FORMAL RULES

Ignorance/lack of information about formal rules/banning alcohol on university premises.

formal rules1
FORMAL RULES
  • Existing rules are perceived as in conflict with the experiences

"It is  forbidden, but it\'s tolerated.”

  • Ignoring the rules

" So I think that the situation, as it is now is bad. If someone violates a rule, e.g. comes in drunk for a lecture, and it isn\'t dealt with then no-one else is afraid to come in drunk. Because after all, nothing will come of it, no problem /consequences.The fact that those students are not obeying the rules, is wrong."

informal rules
INFORMAL RULES
  • informal rules "apply" and also have a control system and its specific informants;
  • particular forms are associated with general social rules.

"That if you drink, do it in silence, and afterwards clean up all the mess, the empty bottles must be taken to the containers outside the building. It was a rule. It was the cleaning lady, who pointed this out if by chance we would like to drink."2/20

" No bottles, no problem. "

“After ten in the evening you have to be quiet. When an event is announced, it may be tolerated until midnight. But if there\'s a big mess, they will finish it earlier. Those student cops. And it is dealt with by taking the accommodation points. "5/18

“ They have enough respect. They come to the room and no one dares to run away, because you have nowhere to escape. When they catch youwhile you are running, you will have a much bigger problem. They take your accommodation card and the next day you go to the student council. About 12 people sit there and they wonder what you did. “ 3/231

  • Respected as formal and also informal authority
  • Sometimes you can negotiate the rules
  • Main complaint aboutcorruption or abuse of their position

“ But those in the Student Council, or the police they do not respect them (the rules). There is nobody to punish them. They can also have a party until 1 AM, it does not matter to anyone. They disturb others, making noise, at any time they want, even after 2AM or later. “ 5/308
