Thinking About Hosting An Event At Your Place?
As tenants, you and your guests are part of the Kingston community and should promote positive relations with the City and your neighbours
Make sure all of your house members are aware that a gathering is being planned
Assign a house member to be in charge of the event – controlling who comes and goes – keeping invited guests inside
Have a plan if you are having friends over where alcohol may be a factor. Be sure to inform your guests of all relevant policies before hand (e.g. not to be outside with alcohol, music volumes, etc).
You should be aware that you can be held responsible for the safety and behaviour of your guests until they are sober – not just until they leave your party. You can be held responsible for injuries or damages that can occur even after guests have left your place. Be a responsible and careful host and be sure to clean-up after your event.
A clean neighbourhood protects housing values, looks nice and instills a sense of pride in the residents of the area
