Vacation time is here! 🏝️- CH Newsletter #68

As part of joining our private student residence, 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 family,
Welcome back to the CH Show!!! 📺 - This is the weekly update to keep you abreast of what’s good in Montreal, the city we love ❤️, as well as updates from your beloved student residence community 🏡 (and another benefit is this keeps parents back home jealous at all times & updated enough not to blow up your phones lol❤️🙏 ).
As you pack up your belongings🧳 and prepare to move on, take a moment to reflect on the personal growth you've achieved during your time in Chelsea. From late-night study sessions 📚 to impromptu hallway hangouts, these shared moments will always be remembered for the rest of your lives!❤️ ❤️❤️

Let’s go ahead and have a peek on how your time with Chelsea House was this School Year!🏫

  • Mail & Package deliveries 

    There are a few different ways packages can be sent, depending on the service that the sender is using. There are 2 different type of deliveries you can receive:

    Canada Post – this is Canada’s federal mail and parcel service.
    Delivery companies (UPS, DHL, Amazon, etc)
    Canada Post mail gets delivered by the Canada Post mailman. They have a key to the building and deposit the mail directly into the member's apartment mailbox. Every member should have a copy of their apartment mailbox key. All the mailboxes are located on the ground floor. Canada Post will sometimes leave a delivery slip in the mailbox if your package does not fit in your mailbox. This means that you need to pick up your package directly at the post office (which is located in the Jean Coutu 1675 Saint-Catherine St W.). Don’t forget to bring the slip and a piece of ID with you to collect your package.



  • When a package is delivered by a Delivery Company, the delivery person should call you on the intercom so you can go get your package. If you do not answer, they often call administration to be buzzed in. Once in, they should be leaving the package in the Expedibox. However, what we often see is that they just leave them in the front entrance. In this case, our housekeeping team does it’s best to bring it to the Expedibox when they see packages lying around.
