Fall Student Life Starts Now - CH Newsletter #36 September 23, 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 Chelsea House Members,

It's official -- fall season is upon us ๐Ÿ If it's your first time to experience this time of the year in Montreal, then you're in for a treat! Soon enough, you'll all be welcomed by the cool autumn breeze ๐ŸŒฌ and the colorful foliage ๐Ÿƒ โžก ๐Ÿ‚ all over our beautiful City.
Thereโ€™s a lot to expect over the next month : From our very own version of Canadian Thanksgiving, the official CH Halloween party, seasonal apple picking... to the start of the hockey season ๐Ÿฅ… (Go Habs Go!!! ๐Ÿ’), tons of exciting things await for you in the coming days! So make sure to ready your jackets ๐Ÿงฅ and boots ๐Ÿฅพ Chelsea Fam!!!
  • Attention Chelsea House Master Chefs, we found the perfect place where you could get fresh ingredients ๐Ÿ… for your culinary offerings and the place is called Lufa Farms (we're pretty sure you've seen a person or two carrying their infamous tote bag in the busy streets of Montreal).


For a minimum order of $20 (subscription is free), you can already avail of their customizable weekly baskets ๐Ÿงบ of locally-sourced produce. More details can be found here.
Apart from supporting responsible and sustainable food system ๐ŸŒ, your purchase would also contribute in providing fresh food and funding to the company's partner food banks and shelters through their program called "Direct Giving" program.
  • Tim Hortons' Smile Cookie Week is back! ๐Ÿช This annual initiative is the only time when you can get Timsโ€™ signature chocolate-chip cookies that are decorated with a smile ๐Ÿ˜Š Each of these supports charities and community groups in the area where you purchased the special cookies. Here's where you can find the several participating branches nearby -


  • Free coffee and yummies, anyone? This Saturday, September 24, Cafe Barista will treat their customers to a ''Barista Fest".

    Apart from the coffee โ˜•๏ธ, they will also be providing free pizza ๐Ÿ• (from Morso Pizzeria), cupcakes ๐Ÿง (from Petit Cake) and caffeinated cocktails ๐Ÿธ (by Cremaglace and Rhum Sainte-Marie) to the attendees. Be there early tho 'cause these will only be served "while stocks last."

    You can also score huge discounts on coffee-making paraphernalia, accessories, coffee bags and tasting boxes. Don't miss out! ๐Ÿ˜Š


Here are some of the snippets from our first BIG HOUSE OUTING last Saturday!!

Welcome to your home away from home, Elena! โค๏ธ
  • Event Staff @ RB Events | If you like participating in marketing related events and you are someone who is flexible, dynamic and most importantly, fun, this job is for you! The role requires availability on evenings and ability to speak French is a plus.

  • Scriptwriter (YouTube) @ Valnet Inc. | The company is on the lookout for creative and talented scriptwriters for its Youtube channels, TheRichest and ScreenRant. If you are creative, have research skills, and up to date on interesting stories worldwide, you are the ideal candidate for the role! Relevant experience in writing and editing - prior experience writing journalism news content is required.

  • Photographer @ TutorAide | Calling all CH resident photographers! We found a part-time wedding photography gig for you! To land the job, you should be able to attend weddings alone and take pictures of the entire wedding process. Note that you will be using your own camera and equipment on this job.


  • Calling all party planners in the House 
All members can host events in the Chelsea House lounge!! It is wildly encouraged !!
Any event with an attendance over 25 people including non-CH guests must be approved by Chelsea House Management. The request to host an event must be submitted a minimum of 48 hours in advance so that if we deem it to be a party, we can book a security guard ๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ(very useful, youโ€™ll soon find out weโ€™re the most popular House on campus). An event request must be submitted on the Chelsea House app ๐Ÿ“ฑ in the service requests, concierge services category and select โ€œCommon Area Reservationโ€.
Remember you will be responsible to pay ๐Ÿ’ฐ for any damages caused at Chelsea House. If you or your guest cause any damage in the Chelsea House common areas, you need to come forward and inform administration. If you fail to do so, Chelsea House will verify the cameras ๐ŸŽฅ to determine who is responsible and you will be charged an additional administrative fine ๐Ÿ’ธ for the time and effort required to investigate (it takes a long time to watch the previous nightโ€™s festivities and find out who did what) ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ.
Donโ€™t worry with security there to help you, youโ€™ll be able to enjoy yourself and not stress too much. Last year we had a ton of parties organized that went smoothly :)

  • Orders placed (storage, kitchen stuff, etc.) - coming soon! Weโ€™re catching up on all the service requests and have a big order of missing supplies coming your way ๐Ÿ˜Š Remember weโ€™re still in a post pandemic slow delivery world ๐ŸŒŽ
  • My FOB key seems to be broken? Read below and reach out to us !!


  • Asides from that weโ€™d like to recognize Antonia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น and Kennedy ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ who have offered to contribute with Instagram and TikTok creation ๐Ÿ™


If youโ€™d like to participate in some area of the community, feel free to reach out !! Youโ€™ll get to meet us at the office and see our hockey net setup ๐Ÿฅ… ๐Ÿ’ mostly used by PJ for late night interview calls / slap shot contests ๐Ÿ˜‚
Alrighty, that's it for now!
Stay Classy,
The Chelsea House Community Team
