The Northgate staff would like to thank all of our new residents for actively participating in our events so far! October is here, and so are the festivities. This month, we will be having pumpkin-carving and door-decorating contests, so get creative! Everyone, make sure to stay safe on Halloween, and come on out to our Boo Bash the Friday before!
- Utility tips: Don’t forget that every resident has a $40 utility cap, so depending on your floor plan, your whole apartment will have a $120 or $160 cap. Make sure to turn lights and fans off when you leave the house or room, keep the A/C at a reasonable temperature of 75 degrees, and make sure to change your dryer’s lint catcher so it runs efficiently.
- If you encounter any problems in your apartment, make sure to call or visit us in the office for work orders. Avoid putting these requests in online. In-person visits and calls to the office are the best way to ensure we understand the situation at hand. Our maintenance staff is here 7:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. weekdays, so make sure you put the request in at a reasonable time to ensure it gets done as soon as possible.
- There is a fire extinguisher underneath your sink in the case of an emergency. Make sure the extinguisher stays on the red square and is not misplaced for your personal safety. Routine checks are done on the status of these extinguishers, so please be responsible.
Reminders & Updates
Rent is due on the 1st of every month, and late fees begin on the 5th. On the 5th, it is $35, and goes up by $5 every day after that. If you have any questions regarding your rent or your account, please contact the office and we’ll be happy to help you out.
We wanted to remind you that we do enforce towing from 8:00 p.m.–8:00 a.m. every day, so please be aware of where your guests park. We do have the visitor parking lot in the back of the property with 166 spots with 24/7 access, so that’s a great alternative.
Have an after-hours lockout or maintenance emergency? Please call the office at (407) 366-7474. You will be connected to our live answering service that will connect you to the Community Assistant or maintenance staff on call that will help you out. *All after-hours lockouts are $25.*
We hope your academic year is off to a great start! Did you know research shows that those 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. 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 and connected both at your Campus Advantage community and on campus.
Campus Advantage is also a national partner with Relay For Life, the largest worldwide fundraising initiative to support cancer research, survivors, and their families. If you would be interested in participating in your community’s Relay For Life team, please let us know. So far, with the help of our residents, we’ve raised $200,000 for Relay For Life!
Whatever you choose, we encourage and challenge you to get involved, stay active, and give back! Please let us know what we can do to support your experience.
