  • We know a lot of you are amused with the first few days of snowfall in the city ❄️ However, as picturesque as it may seem, the cold weather also poses risks and things could get pretty ugly real quick 🥶 So here are some things to keep in mind: 

    • Keep the windows shut completely whenever the heater is on and when leaving your apartments. We had an incident last year when the window was left open on a snowy day and this created a mess 🫣
    • Speaking of heater, some of you might be turning them on for the first time in a while. From experience, it sometimes sets off the smoke alarm due to the burning of dust or debris. If this happens, do not panic. Just push the button on the alarm to reset 😉

    • Always use appropriate footwear (and clothing ofc) for the weather and be mindful of slippery floors. We don't want any of you to get injured 🙏🏻 We will also be installing some carpets around the building in the next few days to help avoid any unfortunate incidents. In the meantime, please be extra careful 👣


  • We'd also like to remind everyone that Chelsea House is a co-living environment with respect and consideration at its core. Here are some practices that would help us maintain and cultivate the amazing vibe we've built in the community: 
    • Be a great roommate by picking up after yourself (clean as you go) 🧹. As much as the weekly housekeeping helps in maintaining cleanliness in your apartments, everyone should be responsible in keeping your respective spaces tidy.
    • Set a timer on your phone so you know when to pick-up your laundry 🧺. Moving someone else's laundry is not fun for anyone and we know that none of you want your stuff touched by other people either 😬
    • Be mindful of the speaker volume, especially at night 🌃 and exam weeks 📚. We want all of you to enjoy our beautiful lounge and the bluetooth speakers provided in your apartments. Make sure however that in doing so, you are not depriving the other members of sound sleep or a conducive environment for studying.
Great news, ladies and gents! Your fellow CH member, Bella 🇺🇸 is officially taking on lead role on our ongoing Chelsea House Art Project!! Merle 🇩🇪 and Dennis 🇩🇪🇳🇱 have recently joined the project, too! If you're up for the challenge, reach out to Bella 🙏🏻 Let's do this 💪🏻

Alright, that's it for now!
Stay Classy,
