Spring 🌼 is coming... but NOT just yet 🫒 - CH Newsletter #55 February 17, 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,
It's mid-February and we've been enjoying warmer days lately so some of you might be thinking, "hmm spring 🌸 should be waving πŸ‘‹πŸ» at us soon". We're sorry to be the one to burst your bubble but this is a typical fake spring feeling "you got scammed" lol. Expect at least 2 to 3 other times you think it’s all over before waking up to a ton of snow 🌨 Again, welcome to Montreal 🍁 folks πŸ˜‚


If you're team Frozen ❄️ and haven't gotten enough of the cold yet 🧊, we gotchu CH Fam! We planned an ice-skating event for our beloved members to make the most out of the remaining days of the winter season πŸ€—
Alright, let's get this Friday evening party started!!! πŸŽ‰

As we've mentioned in the CH Fam WhatsApp Group Chat, the Fiber Optic line was recently broken (again 😒). This time it was on the street!!! Apparently, Hydro Quebec transistor explodedπŸ’₯ downtown and multiple buildings were affected.



Just so you know, the extreme changes in weather we've been experiencing these days affect EVERYTHING. Things break when it suddenly gets super cold then things warm up again (like this week it's +5Β° when a week ago we were at -30Β° lol).
Obviously, we have no control over these things but rest assured that your CH Community team always go above and beyond to ensure these issues are resolved as swiftly as possible-- even if it means having our founder, PJ call and text the tech team and the owner πŸ”₯ of the telco in the middle of the night for updates 🀣


Good news, however, the repairs have been completed and around 1am today, the Wifi is finally working! πŸ₯³ Go ahead, finish and submit those papers already πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»
