Vacant Bedrooms

Any vacant bedrooms cannot be used by visitors or members and must always remain locked. 
Chelsea House reserves the right to assign a new member to a vacant bedroom at any time throughout the year. Should a new member be assigned to your apartment, you are expected to tidy all common areas of your apartment for their arrival.

All members must take responsibility for their laundry and ensure that they collect all of their items once their load is finished. While we provide laundry facilities for your convenience, we cannot be held responsible for any missing items. Pro tip: to help you keep track of your laundry and avoid any mishaps, we recommend setting a timer on your phone. This will avoid someone putting your clothes in the dryer to free up a machine – and whoops your favorite shirt accidentally shrunk.
