CHS Provides Carpet Cleaners To Residents


Carpets are the most expensive items in your apartment. Taking your shoes off when you enter, helps not to track dirt/mud/oil into your apartment. Think about getting some sort of runner or mat to put at your apartment entry. If you can designate a certain area for dirty shoes, clean-up will be minimal.

Did you know you can use our carpet cleaners?

If you are a CHS resident, you can come by the CHS housing office and request to use one of our carpet cleaners when they are available.

3 Steps to a Cleaner Bathroom

CHS Student Residents, Welcome to our Vlog! Today, I wanted to share with you 3 simple steps that I take to clean my bathroom. It goes without saying how important it is to take care of the space we are living in—not only for ourselves but for those who live with us. You’ll feel better about taking care of your bathroom and you’ll more than likely have a happier roommate.

So, the first thing I do is collect all of the dirty items in my bathroom and throw them into a pile outside of the door for washing. Then I take a basic cleaner and simple rag that can easily be found at the dollar store and start with the least dirty thing, for example: the mirror, then work my way to the sink, shower, and lastly, the toilet. This will not only save you time but will save you towels as you will only need one cleaning towel if you work in this way to clean everything.

After all is finished, I then take the cleaning towel, toss it in the pile of dirty bathroom rugs and hand towels and then toss it all in the wash. It’s easy as one, two, three. And you will definitely thank yourself later. If you do this once a week, it will be an easy ten minutes of your time and a lot less stressful for everyone involved. Let us know how this works for you and if you have any questions or suggestions for videos.

What Happens If There Is a Vacancy in My Apartment?

Please keep these tips in mind if you have roommates moving out of your apartment.

Keep your apartment clean and follow the community and CHS rules. This will reduce your chances of being chosen for an involuntary transfer.

Be on the lookout for a new roommate notice. This is typically provided approximately 2 weeks in advance of a new person moving into your apartment.

CHS will conduct an inspection the day before a new roommate is scheduled to move in. If your apartment is not ready for a new roommate, professional cleaners may be sent in and current residents may be charged accordingly.

Remember, cooperation in making your apartment ready and inviting for your new roommate will avoid potential cleaning charges and welcome your new roommate appropriately!

Please see your DOH for more details.

Where do I get furniture?

Remember the time you first moved out from living with your parents, and you felt like the weight of the world had lifted from your shoulders, only to realize you never really thought about details such as: “How and where do I get furniture?” Yeah. We’ve been there! 

We understand that things like furniture, utilities, rent, food, etc. can add up pretty quickly. That list of necessities could make or break your choice of where you should, and even could, live… Not to mention, if moving out is actually even a realistic option anymore. And then you realize that sleeping on the floor, or on a friend’s couch, isn’t a plan for success. 

When putting together our housing program, we did so with you in mind. We thought about the different scenarios and situations that each person may, or will, find themselves in and we created something that not only works, but is doable for you! That is why, when you choose to become a student resident with CHS, your apartment isn’t completely empty when you arrive. At Collegiate Housing Services, we provide a bed, dresser, night table and lamp for you in your bedroom. Also, a couch, dining table and chairs for your living space, and a fridge and other appliances for your kitchen. We also typically have an onsite laundry facility at the apartment complexes, so that you don’t have to travel outside of your living quarters to get laundry done. It’s the best setup for your school season! What more could you ask for?

Let us know how we can help you get started with our housing program today! 

Resident Life at CHS

You know how moving to another space makes way for you to meet new people, make new friends and start out on your own cool adventure? Some of you are reading this and thinking “Yes! I love it. I enjoy meeting new people.” Then there is the other of you reading this thinking, “I dread this part of the transition. Meeting new people is so challenging for me.” At Collegiate Housing Services, we make it easier for you to meet new people and make new friends with our “Resident Life” events.

Resident Life events are where other student residents, from many different backgrounds of study, come together over games, food, contests, and various other planned nights of fun! We understand that the transition can be super taxing; not to mention the load of a school schedule. So we know how helpful it can be when you are surrounded by a community and have an outlet for good old fashioned fun, in a safe and friendly environment.  CHS is constantly drumming up new ideas to get together and build new friendships. Each activity and dates differ by campus. Please reach out to your local CHS staff for upcoming Resident Life events. And if you have any ideas for an event in your area, please let us know!
