You’ll only get a first week of classes once - ENJOY IT! CH Newsletter

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,

How's the first week of classes going, so far? 🤓 These will probably be your last chill days (in a while) before going ultra-focused mode on school requirements this semester. Sooo we've prepared some pretty exciting news for you!
Trust us, this weekend's gonna be AWESOME!!!
  • Montreal pride, represent! Our very own Gisèle Lullaby has won the latest season of "Canada's Drag Race" 🎉 She is the first ever winner of the contest from Quebec.


Here's a clip of her final face-off with Jada Shada Hudson where they performed the Celine Dion classic, A New Day has Come. Hail to the fiercest Queen of the North! 👑


  • This weekend, La Grande Rentrée (The Big Return) will be taking place at Montreal's Quartier Latin. This three-evening event is meant to be a last hurrah before the intense school activities officially takeover your days (and nights).


  • Grab this rare opportunity to party 'til you drop - plenty of bars will be open tonight until 6am!!
    • Jardins Gamelins, 1500 rue Berri (September 8)
    • rue Saint-Denis in the Quartier des Spectacles (September 9 and 10)


  • We know how hectic this weekend's gonna be for you all. Why not hang with the gang on a casual lunch date at Bagels on Greene. It's one of the go-to places of locals for delish bagels and desserts!

  • Front Desk Clerk @ Mariott International Inc. | If you think you're capable of processing guest check-ins and check-outs, payments, and coordinating with other departments (housekeeping, parking, etc.), then this job might be for you! Apart from the extra cash, you will also be working at an international brand of hotel chains with over 500 branches worldwide.

  • Cashier @ Réno-Dépôt | The company is looking for someone who can greet customers warmly, process transactions precisely, keep all checkout work stations clean & tidy, and prepare cash report.

Congratulations, Zoe! 🤑 She’s from Australia 🇦🇺 but spread the good word during Frosh !!


  • MI CASA SU CASA - The newsletter isn’t just good news !! It’s also here as we want to be fully transparent with you all about the good and the bad.
Unfortunately we had an incident this week where members had guests over and in a heated pool game broke one of our brand new pool cues…😖
Look, mistakes happen. But we’d really appreciate being upfront about it and letting us know. It takes time tracking down in the security camera system what happened & then confronting those responsible.
Moral of the story - own up to it. Breakage happens (parents were warned lol) and you’ll be charged the replacement cost. When it’s negligent & we have to hunt down what happened and who is responsible there’s a fine added on. We’d rather invest our time for the fun stuff like our next activity. let’s keep the House pristine CFam 🙏

As you know, we count on all of you to take care of our beautiful mansion Home. We’re really really doing our best to make this the best student experience BUT this crazy dream of a premium environment left in the hands of raging students is a risky bet to say the least lol 😂

So - please please help us keep the Dream alive by watching over your Home with us.

And so we want to remind everyone that it's not just ours but each of the member's responsibility as well to make sure that our home stays in tip-top condition. Moreover, by living in a co-living community, we really encourage everyone to respect the space we’re all sharing.

  • CHESS NOT CHECKERS - There couldn’t be anyone more impressed than us when Housekeeping was raving that an apartment had gifted them a few slices of home cooked cake to thank them for their work. Honestly it’s genius and so appreciated. Yanira, Oscar and the whole crew are really the Kings & Queens of Chelsea 🙏 
That's it for now!!
Stay Classy,
The Chelsea House Community Team
