THE END IS NEAR - CH Newsletter #64 (April 21, 2023)

As part of joining our private student residence, 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!

Dear Chelsea House family,

Can you believe it's already the end of the semester? ๐Ÿ˜ณ We know that many of you are already counting the days until you get to kick back, relax, and go wildin' during the summer break. Hang in there, CFam! You're almost there!

In the meantime, we're here to give you a much needed break and distraction from the final exam preps. This week we will be sharing some of the exciting events happening in the city as well as a recap of yet another memorable party that took place at your favorite student residence. We also have some very important reminders for your upcoming move-out inspection so make sure to read until the very end.

Alright, let's get down to business! ๐Ÿ”ฅ

  • Roomies turned life-long BFFs ๐Ÿฅน

By now, you should already know that Chelsea House was founded not just to provide a temporary roof over the heads of our members. More than that, our goal is to be able to provide memorable experiences and the best environment for our members to excel in each aspect of their lives. However, the most important element we believe is building a co-living community that forges life-long friendships and connections - something that no amount of money can buy.

As some of you will be leaving us soon to go back to your respective countries, we hope that you can take all of the precious memories you've accumulated in the past months. More importantly, keep the friendships you've built at CH wherever life may lead you, because as we always say, once a CFam, always a CFam ๐Ÿค—

  • Receptionist @ Eye Health MD | This job requires you to handle patient greetings, appointments, billing, emails, and account closure. Some of the benefits include working with ophthalmology experts, insurance, and vacation, sick, floater, and wellness days. The best perk of this job is you get free LASIK surgery! Good communication skills in EN and FR, tech proficiency, and a passion for the medical field, especially the elderly is a must.  

  • Sales Advisor @ H&M | This global brand is looking for Sales Advisors who are able to ensure a great shopping experience, offer suggestions and answer questions from customers. From time to time, you will also be expected to answer phone calls and lift heavy items (up to 20 pounds), so only apply if you think you're physically fit for the role.

  • Cashier @ Olympic Park | If hired, you will be assigned to either the locker room or ticket office. The ideal candidate must have excellent FR and good EN skills, a positive attitude, and a good team spirit. You must also be able to work efficiently under pressure and possess excellent customer service skills. Flexibility on shifts is required, including weekends and evenings. Ticketing system experience is preferred but not required for this position.



  • Key and fob ๐Ÿ”‘

With the move-out season just around the corner, we would like to remind everyone that the physical key for your bedroom, the key for your mailbox, and the fob to access the building and apartment, which were given to you during your move-in should all be remitted to Chelsea House at the end of your lease.

In case you've lost any of them, note that the applicable fee for each lost key is $75.

For those of you who will be spending your summer at CH, please make sure to always keep your physical keys with you at all times. We've been getting some reports of mobile keys not working (which we're already addressing). Having your physical keys with you is the best way to ensure that you're not locked out of the building.

  • Security deposit deductions

As you know, there was a $950 refundable security deposit required from you upon signing your lease to cover any damages and/or missing items that might occur during your stay at Chelsea House.

In the event that you have violated our rules and incurred a fine, the amount of the fine will also be deducted from their security deposit.

If there were banking fees missing from your rent payment, these will also be deducted from your security deposit.

The management team reserves the right to discuss all fines, deductions, and any other money related issue with the guarantors on the lease.

We appreciate your cooperation in maintaining a safe and respectful environment for all residents.

* Note that the amount of all fines will escalate after every infraction.
