Preparing for Hurricane Sandy
What to do in the event of a leak
If during the storm your ceiling starts to leak, don’t panic. Leaks can happen if high winds blow off roofing material or if gutters and downspouts get blocked. If a leak forms in your ceiling, immediately move any personal belongings away from the leak and put down a bucket, trashcan, large pot, or other receptacle to catch the water and prevent damage.
You should then call the TempleTown Emergency Maintenance Line at 610-755-8593. Leave a detailed voicemail message with your name, phone number, property address (make sure to include apartment number), and nature of the leak or maintenance emergency. Unfortunately there is not much repair that can be done to a leak during an active storm. Once storm conditions have subsided, maintenance will be able to come out to make necessary repairs.

Welcome back to school everyone! It’s the second week of class and by now you probably have your off campus apartment mostly set up with the essentials – bed, desk, dresser, TV, etc. Maybe you need a few more items to really personalize your space and make it your home. Maybe you still haven’t found the perfect poster or piece of art to put above your bed. Maybe you actually still don’t have a desk! In any case, here are a list of upcoming sales, great places to shop, and other tips to make decorating your off campus apartment easier and fun!
This one is a no-brainer. IKEA is a long popular shopping destination for college students looking for affordable furniture and home decor for their off campus apartment.
The closest IKEA is located in South Philly, only 5 miles away from Temple’s main campus. Last time we checked, if you don’t have a large car for transporting furniture, it costs $70 for IKEA to deliver a truck full of furniture.
Also, for a limited time only, students get 15% off in the Swedish Food Market with a purchase of $20 or more with student ID. Offer is valid til September 30, 2012.
Philadelphia Flea Markets has two big markets coming up this weekend.
The second Flea Market is on Saturday, September 8th around Eastern State Penitentiary, 9am to 5pm. Use 2201 Fairmount Avenue, 19130 for GPS directions.
