The Party Never Stops in MTL ๐Ÿ”ฅ - CH Newsletter #52 January 27, 2022

As part of joining our private student residence, our members receive weekly updates about the community, upcoming events in Montreal, 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,
Welcome back to the CH Show!!! ๐Ÿ“บ
How's it going CH Fam? We know that winter life has been pretty nasty the past couple of days but in our opinion, albeit unpopular, weathering through this time of the year in our beloved city of Montreal turns you into real Montrealers ๐Ÿ˜œ
Don't let the icy wind ๐Ÿ’จ and snow โ„๏ธ dampen the vibe tho 'cause we've rounded up some pretty amazing activities you can do to liven up your weekend because as we always say, the party never stops in Montreal ๐Ÿ



  • Have brunch in an outdoor bubble dome ๐Ÿฝ 

Enjoy a fancy and unique dining experience at Terasse William Gray. Their 3-course brunch is priced at $55 per person and you need to be at least a party of 4 in order to book a reservation. Apart from the good food and special setting, you will also be able to enjoy an amazing view of Old Montreal including the famous landmarks of Place Jacques-Cartier, the St. Lawrence River and Montrealโ€™s ferris wheel.

  • Have an electrifying evening at Igloofest's after parties ๐ŸŽ‰

We know some of you have already been to the famous Igloofest ๐Ÿชฉ (yes, we've seen the photos on IG ๐Ÿ‘€) but did you know about the afterparties happening downtown and Old Montreal? Head over to one (or all ๐Ÿคญ) of the Aprรจs-Ski events below and spend an extended night of dancing with the gang!

  • K-Pop and K-Drama fans, rejoice! ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŽค๐Ÿง‘โ€๐ŸŽค

This one's for our CH K-Pop and K-Drama fangirls and boys (again, yes, we read your roommate matching questionnaires. lol) ๐Ÿ˜‰ We know the struggles of buying K-merch -- expensive shipping fees, limited stocks, delayed shipments, etc. Worry not because this weekend, a Montreal store is opening right here in Montreal which will make it easier for you to score those much-coveted albums ๐Ÿ’ฟ, magazines ๐Ÿ“•, concert light sticks ๐Ÿ”ฆ and so much more!

  • CH Monthly Giveaway ๐ŸŽ

The much-awaited CH Monthly Giveaway has finally resumed! Our first giveaway this year is everyone's favorite HABS TICKETS ๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ for Thursday's game with the Detriot Red Wings.
Our first winner ๐Ÿ† for 2023 is one of the most active members of the student residence community, Olivia ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท. Of course, it goes without saying that it pays to always participate in our activities (IG/newsletter/blog content contribution, hosting activities, etc.) ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you haven't read Oli's blog post yet, please do check it out ๐Ÿ‘‰ Student Top Picks: Grocery Stores Edition.


Unfortunately, Oli ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท already had plans for the night so she willingly gave up her tickets to another member of the CH student residence ๐ŸŽŸ๐ŸŽŸ , which led to an exciting turn of events ๐Ÿคฃ

  • ๐Ÿšจ REMINDERS ๐Ÿšจ
Last week, some of our members had a get-together at the CH Lounge. Unfortunately, the next day our beloved housekeeping team reported that the area was left in an unacceptable state.
As much as we love seeing you enjoy with your fellow members and non-CH friends, we'd like to remind you of the following guidelines when using the CH Lounge:
1) Quiet hours 
Weโ€™ve already stated this before and we know that we sound like a broken record but for the benefit of our new members, please be reminded that you must be respectful of your fellow membersNoise needs to go lowered past 11pm during the week and 2am during the weekend.
This is to help the others who have exams, jobs, classes to rest and not be disturbed by your fun times.
Fines start at 25$ per person for first infraction and double for each subsequent infraction. 
Trust us when we say that we absolutely hate doing this but wonโ€™t hesitate as itโ€™s coming from those who need rest that they canโ€™t get any right now. 
Remember we all share the same building so the enjoyment of it really depends on all of you.
2) Cleanup & breakage 
Again, it needs to be restated -- we expect you to clean up after yourselves during and after a party. 
Itโ€™s impossible for us to police whoโ€™s friend breaks a table and who leaves behind their popcorn and soda from every activity.
Long story short, clean as you go & own up if something is broken
Needless to say, warnings and fines will be issued.
  • What's New at CH???

Our new whiteboards are up! Gracias, Oscar and Steph ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป for taking care of the installation! Check it out to see the upcoming events and the current month's birthday celebrants ๐ŸŽ‚

Oh, and have you seen the new poster ๐Ÿ–ผ that we put up in the office? Thanks to our former member Laura Walter ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท for the amazing work! ๐Ÿฅน
We will be decorating the CH hallways with more artworks from our members, so if you have any pieces you wish to be included, please reach out to Bella ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง and Steph ๐Ÿ˜
