Although this hasn’t been our coldest winter, it can still get pretty chilly - especially if you aren’t used to cold temperatures! In order to ensure your apartment unit (and you!) stay toasty, make sure you follow these tips:

❄️ Cover air conditioners to stop drafts from entering the unit.
❄️ Keep all windows closed to stop heat from escaping. 
❄️ Dress appropriately for the cold weather. Check out our layering clothes for winter weather tutorial on our Instagram page!

If you still feel your apartment unit is having heating difficulties, please contact the Residence Office!

😱Leaving items in the hallway is scarier than you think! 😱

It might not seem like a big deal but all hallways are fire exits and must stay clear 🚒 - not to mention the pest and safety concerns some items can pose! 

We kindly ask residents to keep items like strollers, boots, and mats inside their units. If you’re looking to clear out clutter, residents can donate gently used items to the Free Store, located on the 3rd floor of 30 Charles. And finally, for information on how to properly dispose of garbage, visit our website!

Thank you for doing your part to keep our community safe and clean for all the families who live here. 🤗💙
