    How can we translate Normas de Convivencia, in contexts like: When more than 3 people living together in an apartment or in a dorm in a boarding school, or in a hall residence, or simply at work , or in school ?

    "rules for coexistence"
    "cohabitation rules", si se trata de personas que viven juntas.

    ¿En el ámbito del trabajo y del aula tambien ?

    In the U.S. it is common in boarding schools, residence halls, etc. to say "community standards" for normas de convivencia. "Coexistence" sounds very poetic, and cohabitation is almost only used in formal or legal writing.

    Hope that helps!

    En el ámbito del trabajo y del aula, debe decir "code of conduct". Eso es un poco formal, pero me parece que el trabajo o el aula es un poco más formal.

    "Community standards" from my last post would work too, but "code of conduct" is more the norm in work or school settings in the U.S.
