Gearing Up for the Holidays, the Chelsea House Way - CH Newsletter #45 November 25, 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!

Dear CH family,
Welcome back to the CH Show!!! πŸ“Ί
Can you believe it? It's already the last weekend of November πŸ˜± The countdown to holidays has officially started ⏰ and our beloved city of Montreal is about to transform into a winter wonderland β˜ƒοΈ We're here to make sure that y'all will have a cheery and spectacular time this season 🀩
Alright, let's do this! ❄️
  • It's exactly one month to go before Christmas and we're certainly beginning to feel the festive spirit!! To jumpstart the holiday festivities, visit The Longueuil Christmas Market. This Montreal hot spot was recently named as one of the best Christmas Markets in the world by Big Seven Travel. It's open Friday til Sunday starting this weekend until the 8th of December. Entrance is absolutely free!



  • The hottest items from STM's holiday collection are back in stock! From ugly sweaters, matching socks, to cute totes, you'll surely find something that's worth gifting to your friends and family back home 😊 The best thing about it is that profits from the collection's sales will be donated to the company's Generosity Campaign that helps in fighting poverty and eradicating chronic diseases.


  • We've got more shopping recos for you, CH Fam! Drop by the nearest Costco and fill your cart with their biggest and most amazing holiday products! You'll definitely find something for everyone on your list in this one-stop-shop haven (smart and practical πŸ‘Œ) πŸ›’
  • Friday Wine and Pizza PreParty πŸ·πŸ•
We set off the weekend shenanigans with a wine 🍷 and pizza πŸ• party (shoutout to Steph πŸ™ŒπŸ») at the Chelsea House lounge earlier today. Needless to say, it was an absolute hit and we have the photos to prove it πŸ˜‚

She's a very social person, thus, truly enjoys going out and getting to know different people. She also loves writing βœοΈ and would like to do a minor in Journalism. Additionally, she is getting herself into debating πŸ—£ and even participated in the Ontario 2022 Ethics Bowl as the ambassador of her team last April.

We can't wait to hear about your adventures in Montreal with the rest of the gang, Ari! ❀️


  • Home Telephone Agent @ Htk Media Agency | We found the ideal part-time job for the CH night owls! The task is simple - place calls to agency clients and prospects in the comfort of your home with a flexible schedule!

  • Floor Clerk @ The Jean Coutu Group (PJC) Inc. | If you are the type of person who enjoys interacting with people, wants to work with a dynamic team, and wants a stimulating environment where collaboration is at the heart of operations. This position is perfect for you!

  • Spa Attendant @ Four Seasons | Four Seasons Montreal is looking for an individual who can provide first class service to Four Seasons standards. If hired, you will be expected to ensure that guests' needs are met and do so in a pleasant manner as an ambassador of the company. Ensure that you have permission to work in Canada and are able to speak and write in English and French before applying for the job.


  • We've mentioned it several times before but we cannot emphasize it enough that it is of utmost importance that we observe and follow a certain decorum to maintain the amazing vibe we've all worked so hard to build in your favorite student residence 🏑
1) Quiet hours - we would like to once again remind everyone to respect the quiet hours we've set.
    • Noise needs to be lowered past 11pm on weekdays and 2am on weekends πŸ•°.
    • No more warnings: Fines start at 25$ per person for first infraction and double for each subsequent infraction. We hope to avoid this but won’t hesitate as it’s coming from those who need rest that they can’t get any right now 😞 
2) Cleanup & Breakage after a party - this has already been addressed but seems to need to be restated. We expect you to clean up after yourselves during and after a party. Again, clean as you go and own up if something is broken.
Here is the state the lounge was left in for us to clean up last Sunday morning. Needless to say, fines have been issued πŸ˜₯

Remember you all share the same building so the enjoyment of it really depends on all of you πŸ™πŸ»
Alright, that's it for now!
Stay Classy,
The Chelsea House Community Team
