Questions regarding block 11 and 12.
For Silicon Hill FAQ click here.
*I live in block 12, can I use services and common rooms located at block 11?
Yes, although block 11 and 12 is divided into two parts, all residents in block 12 have the same block manager, block representative and block funds as residents of block 11. We are currently trying to have a few active members in block 12, so you don't have to walk halfway through the building if you need to add your device to the network for example. :)
*When can I change the bedsheets? Where can I borrow the vacuum cleaner? What do I do when I closed my door with the keys inside?
*We have a failure in our room/in the common areas. What do I do?
Defects are repaired here by SFA (SÚZ) employees, who perform maintenance according to the list of reported defects. You can report the defect via SFA (SÚZ) intranet or at the reception. If there is a defect in your room, the repairman will come to your room on an unannounced day and hour.
*There are bugs in my room/in the kitchen. What do I do?
In the event of cockroaches, bedbugs or other harmful insects infestation, contact the housing manager as soon as possible. She will arrange disinsection spraying. The spraying is fast and free. Bugs in the room are not normal.
*Where are my letters? What is the address here?
The letters for block 11 are placed in post boxes located near the entrance for block 11. For block 12, the letters remain at the reception and you are informed of their delivery by a small piece of paper on the reception window with your room number.
Registered letters and larger packages remain at Česká pošta: branch Strahov post office and you will be informed by a special letter from the post office (in your post box or at the reception) as if you were receiving a normal letter.
Block 11 address:
Praha 6 - Břevnov
Block 12 address
Praha 6 - Břevnov
*Where are the big ovens, in which I can bake food?
Four-burner electric ovens are located at block 11 in large kitchens on the second and fourth floors.
*Neighbors are noisy while I try to sleep for an exam, what should I do?
Try to go to them and ask nicely for them to quiet down. If they're still loud, visit the block representative or the doorman at the reception.
*The internet doesn't work. Who should I contact?
If you have tried all the options, such as restarting the device, turning off random MAC addresses, or resetting the password if you're not sure about it, write an e-mail to email@example.com or visit a registrar.
*I got banned. How do I get it revoked?
Depending on the service that was banned for you, visit the appropriate person to give you more information:
Ban on Basic Membership - Block representative
Ban on network membership - Admin / Block representative / write an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Ban on Sports Membership - Block Gym Administrator
Ban on a specific room / service on the block - Block representative
Depending on the severity and number of your transgressions, you will be given an appropriate task which needs to be done (e.g. clean the block grills) and thus significantly reduce the time for which the ban was imposed on you.
*The table tennis room manager isn't in his room, what should I do?
Try to write him an e-mail and arrange a meeting in advance, or better yet, join us as an active member on our block and help us. In addition to having keys from the table tennis room and the possibility to go play with a friend at any time, you will also help the students' self-government (Silicon Hill club) and everyone else to whom you will lend the keys to the room.
