Improving your WIFI

Consider adjusting your frequency band from 5.0 GHz to 2.4 GHz. This adjustment allows you a wider range of access which should help resolve some of your connectivity issues. As the range is extended you should be able to connect to stronger WIFI.

Please review the resources below based on your computer type to make this adjustment.

There is a dedicated laundry room available within the building for students to access. The laundry machines in this space are app-based, meaning students pay virtually for their load. Irons and ironing boards will be available for your use in your room.

There are 8 washers and 8 dryers on the second floor of the hotel located in the Seymour Room. The cost is $3.00 for wash and $3.00 for dry. To set up your app follow the next steps: 1) Download the Coinamatic CP app, 2) Enable Bluetooth, 3) Register/Sign in, 4) Add funds, 5) Load clothes and select desired settings on the machine, 6) On your app, enter the # on the reader or scan the QR code next to the reader and pay for the cycle, 7) Press start on the machine.

Additionally, the Chelsea Hotel off property laundry service has offered to do student laundry at a cost of $30 plus HST per laundry bag that is in the Hotel guest rooms.  If it is dropped off by 9 am at the concierge desk it will be returned by 6 pm the following day.


Students will be responsible for cleaning their own rooms and purchasing their own cleaning products. Garbage and recycling can be left neatly outside your door in a tied-closed plastic garbage bag and it will be disposed of for you. Students can contact the Front Desk of the hotel to request to have their rooms vacuumed, as needed. New linen and towels will be provided a maximum of once a week upon request to the Front Desk of the hotel. 

Common Spaces

There are several common rooms available for students’ exclusive use for study and other activities. The first room is the Monarchs located on the first floor of the hotel near the Gerrard st. entrance. This space is open 24/7 and permits group study and socializing. Additionally, the communal microwave is stored in this space.

The second space is the Mountbatten Salon located on the second floor of the hotel. This space is open 24/7 and is a designated quiet zone for studying, exams, and other independent work. The Chelsea Hotel also has a large outdoor patio that is available to all hotel guests seasonally.
