The privacy of each resident’s room is genuinely respected. Herbal Hill Studios staff have the right to access the room for reasonable purpose. When access is required for routine inspections, each affected resident will receive notification of the date, time and purpose of the visit at least 24 hours in advance. Instances when notice will be given include:
- To perform routine health, safety and inventory inspections
- To show the apartment to contractors or prospective residents
- To carry out required facility services or planned maintenance works
Submitting a maintenance service request via the Resident Portal or at the Reception Desk is automatically considered an invitation to enter during normal working hours to respond to the request. There may be other circumstances where issuance of such notice is impractical and entry into a room is necessary without 24 hours notice. Instances include:
- To carry out emergency maintenance in your room
- To carry out maintenance works requested.
- To respond to a medical emergency or suspected danger to a person’s welfare
- To collect hire items left in student rooms beyond the agreed hire date or time

Notices will be posted near lifts and/or other centrally located locations whenever access is needed to several units on specific floors. Notices will be placed on individual doors if access to a select number of units is necessary. Entry to student rooms will only be made by Herbal Hill Studios Staff or Herbal Hill Studios approved contractors. Staff will knock loudly and identify themselves as staff before entering.
