Building Updates

Annual Fire Alarm Testing

Our annual fire test 🧯will be taking place on Monday July 24th and Tuesday July 25th from 8am until 4pm. On Monday July 24th, ALMA staff and our Life Safety team will be entering your units. You will hear the fire alarm going off while they are in the building as the system will be on test.

Maintenance Requests

We are in the process of switching platforms from Yuhu to Entrata. Between July 7th and July 17th, we ask that all maintenance requests be sent using Grata. Details on how to download and use Entrata will be sent via email to all of you in the coming weeks.

Garbage Room

The garbage room is located on the main floor by the North elevator - in the hallway of the 100 level units. Please ensure you take your garbage down to the garbage room daily. ♻️ You'll notice we have Green bins, recycling bins and garbage bins. The Green Bins are not for your garbage. If you are unfamiliar with what goes where, you can download the Guelph waste app in the App Store or Google Play.


Please remember that the kitchen is a shared space and the fridges and freezer in the community kitchen are shared amongst all residents. Please be respectful of the space by using the shared fridges and freezer for items that do not fit your mini fridge. Reminder, all cooking supplies including pots and pans, are to be stored in your units.


The BBQs are for the ALMA community and we ask that you clean them after each use. The red valve behind each BBQ is used to turn the gas line on and off. Please do remember to turn the gas line off when you are done using the BBQ. If you are unsure how to work the BBQ, please feel free to pop by the office and we can show you. Patio furniture should be arriving next week.

Bike Room

Bike racks have now been installed in the bike room, however, we are still waiting on the installation of the fob access panel. We are hopeful that this is completed by July 7th. Once installed, you'll be able to use your Fob to gain entry into the bike room.
