The management of this building promises to work hard to provide a pleasant rental experience. We have chosen a level of service and
friendliness which we believe is substantially higher than most in the area. This is only possible with your help and cooperation. Let us all
make a good start, on a positive note.

This is a quiet building intended for studying and similar activities. No loud noises or large parties are allowed. Since we have chosen a high
standard, we have rules that lean away from those of "dorm rooms" and "frat houses" and "ugly student housing." Please be a good neighbor.

Do not bring musical instruments, tiki torches, portable bars, beer kegs or barrels. No beer-pong or other sport tables or collections of empty
bottles or cans are allowed. We also require that beds or futons be placed only in designated bedrooms. No indoor furniture is allowed on
porches or lawns. No papers or posters will be attached to walls unless they are framed and hung on small nails. A high standard of neatness
will be kept, both inside and on the porch and lawns.

The area around UWM has a high concentration of student rentals and quite a few single family homes. This has led to conflicts over noise,
dog walking, parties, and other issues. In recent years, the City of Milwaukee has increased fines and enforcement. Please be very aware of
this and stay away from any illegal activity.
