Hi, we hope your exams are going well!

Starting from today (Dec 19, 2017) and over the next few days, our staff will be coming to all units to drop off Christmas cards and candy canes for all students. You don’t need to be home, but are welcome to stay.

We understand that students will be heading home for the holidays soon. There are a few important steps to take before you leave your residence for the holidays:

(1) Ensure all windows in the apartment are closed and locked.

(2) If you live in the Blake residence, do not shut off the heating in your room and ensure that the heating knob next to your radiator is set to at least a setting of 3. Your radiator should feel warm. If it doesn’t, please let us know.

(3) Throw out any perishable food that may go bad during your absence (in your room, on the kitchen countertops, and in the fridge).

While dropping off Christmas cards and candy canes, our staff will also be ensuring that the above 3 tasks have been completed.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
