Thanksgiving is upon us: Hot turkey, stuffing, and gravy! The MLHU is strongly urging all students to stay in London in their off-campus rentals if possible, and to avoid going home to hotspot cities such as Toronto and Montreal. Some of you may need to go home for personal reasons. Before heading home from Western campus and leaving your student home behind, there are a few things you should make sure to double check:
1) Make sure all doors and windows are properly closed/locked. If there is an issue with these, you should submit a maintenance request. Also make sure to take home any valuables.
2)If you pay for your utilities, you should make sure to turn off the main water to your unit to prevent leaks/floods from occurring (more info in your tenant package)
3)Make sure stove/oven is off, and hair straighteners/curling irons unplugged
Most importantly – make sure to relax! The Western student experience is fun, but can be very stressful. Make sure to follow these steps and your off campus apartment/townhouse/house won’t be an added stress when you get back!
Have a wonderful weekend
