Meeting Room Now Open 24/7 

When asked in the 2022 Charles Street Annual Residents Survey if there was interest in having the Meeting Room converted to a 24-hour study space, 74% of respondents said yes. UFH recognizes the need for more spaces outside of apartments for studying or other quiet work and we are pleased to announce that the space will now be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

For those who may be unaware, the Meeting Room is located on the 3rd floor of 30 Charles, next to the Drop-In Centre. This common space is to be used for quiet study or gathering – no parties or events will be permitted. The capacity of the room is 14 people and access is on a first come, first served basis. Food is not permitted, and WiFi is available with the login information posted in the room.
