General Manager's Welcome Hello Centennial Place! Welcome to the May Edition of our monthly Newsletter. Let me begin by thanking you for taking the time to read our Newsletter, and continue engaging with our content, and participating in the many opportunities to experience Residence Life, in spite of our circumstances resulting from the pandemic. Your commitment to live the full ‘on-campus’ experience (in whatever form or shape that takes) is truly commendable, and we are grateful for both your enthusiasm, and your readership. The May Edition has many exciting updates about programming, as well as important information about leasing for Fall 2021. I am thrilled to share that our Summer Plan includes some limited, drive-thru styled programming; the potential pilot for a modified guest-privileges policy (in order to prepare for Fall); and the potential re-opening of select Amenity spaces, with some restrictions and limitations in order to ensure their safe-use by the community. Following a successful (contactless) Move-Out, I’m also grateful to every individual who chose to remain with us for the Summer and, especially so for those that have chosen to stay for Fall. We understand that committing to a Lease when personal circumstances continue to remain ‘in flux’ can be challenging, but your decision to choose Centennial Place for another Term, or another year, has not gone unnoticed, and is very much appreciated. On behalf of the team, “Thank You”—We hope to continue providing premier on-campus accommodations that live up to the slogan, where students love living. Important Reminders Renew your Lease for Fall 2021 today and secure our special Rate Freeze rates! Don’t miss out! Our 2-Bed Private and 2-Bed Deluxe Units are SOLD OUT for Fall 2021! Renter’s Insurance is a requirement of your Lease Agreement—If you haven’t already sent your Policy, you are OVERDUE and will be liable for damages to your Unit and/or belongings!

Hi, How Are You? Mental Health Week May 3 - 9, 2021
Even in times of extreme anxiety and stress, mental health is something we can protect. Not just something we can lose. Visit www.mentalhealthweek.ca for info and tools about CMHA Mental Health Week.
#GetReal about how you feel
Mediation Space Close your eyes and allow every worry, task and negative thought to float away. You have no time for them here, and so you let each of them go. Every bad thought, every fear and every worry. Watch them all float away on the great big ocean in your mind. As you sit on the shore, you hear a voice in the distance, telling you: Today I am happy. Today I am capable. Today I am worthy. Today I am alive. Today I am free. Today I am strong. Today I can anything I set my mind to. Today I will not let negative thoughts overcome my mind. Repeat as much as needed throughout the day/week. You Got This!
