Did You Know?

Locked Out  
If you lock yourself out of your unit or bedroom, you have two options depending on what time of the day/night it happens:

  1. If it’s during regular business hours (10am-6pm, Monday-Friday), you can come to the front lobby to request to be let in. In the event you misplaced your FOB permanently, new FOBs can be purchased for a fee of $100. 
  2. If it’s after hours, someone can be sent out to unlock the door for you for a $60.00 fee (*Payment due upon arrival of the rescuer. Cash only.)

Fire Alarms and Extinguishers
Did you know it's against the law to tamper with the fire alarms or extinguishers in your unit? Never touch or remove your fire alarms/extinguishers and if you notice there is one missing/defective, contact solstice@domushousing.com immediately. Tampering with your fire safety devices will result in being fined by the City of Guelph.


Maintenance Requests
How do I make a maintenance request?

  • email solstice@domushousing.com or call 1.877.464.4978 x 2
  • provide us with a detailed description of the issue/request so we can serve you as efficiently as possible
  • give us your name, phone number and property address, including unit and room number

When should I expect a response?

For requests received during regular business hours, our goal is to have a contractor sent out within 48 hours or sooner.  There are certain times of year where it may take a bit longer due to the volume of requests (particularly the weeks after September & May move in times) but all emergency or extremely urgent issues will be dealt with immediately.

Regular office hours: 10am - 6pm, Monday to Friday

What happens after hours in case of an emergency?
Call
1.877.464.4978 x 3 and leave a message.  Our After Hours Team will get back to you promptly.

Garbage,  Recycling  & Organics? 

Where to bring your garbage? Garbage chutes are located on floors 2 through 6. Residents on the first floor can access the waste room on the first floor beside the bike room and place waste in appropriate bins.

Solstice 2 is equipped with a tri-sorter. Instructions are posted in the chute rooms to help.

Where to bring your recycling? Recycle bins have been provided in the waste room. There is also a place for sorted beer, wine and spirit containers for those who do not wish to bring them to the beer store. There is a recycling bin for batteries, light bulbs and small electronics in the waste room too!  

How to Properly Use a Garbage Chute:

  1. ONLY small kitchen garbage/grocery bags can be thrown down the chutes.
  2. Cardboard boxes including pizza boxes and large outdoor garbage bags CANNOT be put down the chutes as they will clog them.

DO NOT put oversized items down the waste chute. If you clog the chute, your unit will be charged for unclogging and cleaning up the mess.  If you have large garbage items, please bring them directly to the additional dumpster located at the back of the building.  Thanks for your anticipated cooperation!
