CH Newsletter #10 January 20, 2022
As part of joining our private residential community, our members receive weekly updates about the community, upcoming events, developments in the student residence and any other relevant news. We've decided to post these updates on our website in order to let our visitors looking for student housing get an inside view of the Chelsea House student life!
It’s official. You’re now fully Canadian 🇨🇦.
Nothing says Montréal quite like -28 C degree 🥶 weather (coldest in 4 years !!) followed by back to back snowstorms (16 cm total).
Our recommended remedy to cope with this is to order your favourite UberEats cheat meal delivered straight to your favorite student residence. And yes, upgrade your fries into a poutine (power move 💪🏽).
Here’s some updates for you:
From now on, we’re going to be giving an introduction to you all, our faithful CH student housing newsletter subscribers, to a Chelsea House student member on every newsletter.
Introducing Josh !!
Josh is our future engineer studying at Concordia and hailing from Toronto, Canada :)
He’s living with Arta 🇮🇷 and Youssef 🇲🇦 on the 3rd floor in one of the Scandinavian designed apartments.
If you have any questions about how to build an airplane to escape to a warm beach 🏖, ask Josh.
If you also want to know how to convince your fellow canoe partners to do all the paddling while you lounge away, also ask Josh 🤣
ACTIVITIES - THIS WEEKEND
ICE BREAKER “MEET THE FAM” event
Chelsea members only
2:30pm Saturday Jan 22
Pretty simple, highly effective and lots of fun! This event is made to allow you to meet your fellow members. Good to meet new arrivals but also whoever you didn’t meet that’s living on a different floor than you :) We hope you can make it !!
Right after we’ll continue it into a casual hangout. Foods and drinks will be provided. Shoutout to Jad 🇦🇪 for helping us in putting it together 🙏
BEAUTY OF RIO UPGRADE - THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
We heard how excited you were when our stunning pool table arrived last Christmas! So here’s something to get y’all more pumped… it can transform into a ping pong table!!
When taking the ping pong cover tables off, please gently put them together against the corridor wall next to the lounge, so as to not clutter up the space 🙏🏻. It will also help maintain our ping pong table’s pristine condition.
MORE UPGRADES, MAINTENANCE, ETC.
- We’ve ordered a printer (!!) which will be All-You-Can Black & White. Please be mindful that this isn’t meant to print out a 200 page course pack (Copies Concordia is perfect for that) but rather actual smaller personal print needs.
- ENTRANCE CARPETS - yup we’ve been waiting for a long time, installer promised this week got cold 🥶 so it’s now slated for next week.
- Unwanted House guests - with the recent absolute cold, we’ve unfortunately had a few more unwanted house guests that are seeking warmth: field mice. Unfortunately this is a Montreal downtown-wide problem whenever cold strikes (according to the specialists it is currently worse than ever as a lot of businesses are closed and therefore cold). Rest assured that we are doing everything possible to solve this issue ASAP.
- Main Entrance Vestibule - we will be adding temporary heating units tomorrow to make it warmer. Unfortunately, we are still waiting on City approval for our brand new castle doors, which are waiting in a warehouse to be installed…
"YUP THERE’S AN APP FOR THAT”
On its way to an App Store near you: our very own Chelsea House app !!
Although we don’t have all of the features developed yet, we are going ahead and releasing the app as soon as possible for so that we can start using…Service Requests!
This is basically an organized way to take note of any maintenance or service request you may have, so that they all get grouped together by apartment and can help organize the handymen’s schedule, and make sure nothing gets forgotten!!
Needless to say we’re very proud, even though it’s still in its infancy (ie: it will get better over time).
Next features: a Message Board (invite members to an event, show Alessandro’s 🇮🇹 latest pasta recipe, and Comment Card (anonymously leave a note to us, ex: noisy neighbour)
OK - THAT’S IT…for now !!
See you on Saturday!
