We hope you all made it back to Orlando safely after Hurricane Irma! Maintenance is working diligently on any damages the hurricane may have caused. If you notice any further damage, please don’t hesitate to contact the office! In the meantime, we have a bunch of fun events planned for October in addition to Resident Appreciation Week, where you’ll not only have fun, but meet new people (and don’t forget the free food)! Be on the lookout in our office and on our Facebook page for more details. We hope to see you all there!
— From Your Northgate Staff
- It is Florida, and in these hot months, we recommend you keep your A/C at 75–76 degrees. Setting it under that could cause your A/C to freeze over and not work properly. It could also make you go over on your electricity.
- Leave your bathroom fan on and your door open for at least 15 minutes after you shower to prevent mildew.
- The speed limit on the property is 5 mph. Be aware of pedestrians crossing.
- Remember to lock your front door whether you are home or not.
Reminders & Updates
Don’t forget that rent is posted on the 1st of the month and is due before the 5th. You can pay via check or money order in the office or online through your resident portal.
Since we have a lot of residents hanging out by the pool, please remember that glass is not allowed by the pool.
We hope you’ve had a good start to the semester! Everyone should be settled in by now and ready to take on the school year. October will be packed with events and a special Resident Appreciation Week planned from October 2–6, so be sure to look at the events section in this newsletter.
Renewal rates and new lease rates are ready! Please stop by the front desk so we can answer any questions you have in regard to renewing your lease — we’re happy to help.
Get involved. Get ahead.
Did you know students who are involved outside of the classroom are more successful in their academic pursuits? If you haven’t already done so, we encourage you to find opportunities to get involved on campus and in the local community. Your campus’ student activities office is a great place to start to find out about clubs, organizations, and campus events. You can also connect with our team to find ways to get connected. Whether it’s the chess club or intramural football, or volunteering at a local shelter, we would love to help you find ways to get involved both at your Campus Advantage community and on campus.
