Start the Semester with a Bang!πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡πŸŽ†- CH Newsletter #84

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!!! πŸ“Ί - 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 lolβ€οΈπŸ™ ).

giphy welcomeee



 If you're new here (which many of you are - we've added 4 new members who are coming in Fall 2023 this week!! They'll be lurking in the newsletter from here on out 😝) - the Insider's Report is where you benefit from the Community Team's local Montreal knowledge to guide you, dear CH student residence members, to what we hope is a true student housing experience. In all cases, forget the tourist traps, here's WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW, for this week.
