#ChapterCheckIn - Competition Time
Published: 07 Sep 17
There's no way around it; Moving is stressful. We hope we've made it as easy as possible for you with our definitive guide for what to pack for uni, and our instructions for checking in. But we're so excited to welcome you to your new home that we're offering a little treat to make the whole journey sweeter: introducing the competition!
Whoever posts our favourite photo of their check in will win £300 IKEA vouchers to kit out their brand new room with. Imagine the haul you could pick up; tables, chairs, lamps, rugs, pillows, photo frames, plants, clocks, books, £300 worth of Daim cheesecake from the IKEA Restaurant...
2nd place will get £200 vouchers to set them up in their Chapter residence, and 3rd will pick up a tidy £100 voucher to spend. The closing date for the competition is the 25th September at 5PM, so you've got about 2 weeks to show us your highlights from check in.
Any photos you've already uploaded will be considered, just as long as you add that hashtag - so for any early birds, or those who checked in at Chapter Aldgate last weekend, make sure you get those shots tagged up to be in with a chance.
We're after any photos of your check in journey. If you need some inspiration, here's a few ideas:
- Airport shots on your way to London from your home - before, during or after, we're not fussy!
- Unpacking your stuff into your new pad, and showing the personal touches that make it your own
- Views from your windows of the London skyline (hint: sunsets are an easy and picturesque entry)
- Hanging out with your new BFF's at Chapter, or taking in the sights around London town
- Enjoying the events as you arrive, like tucking into a burger at the Chapter Highbury BBQ, fun with props at the Chapter Aldgate photobooth or socialising at the Chapter Kings Cross brunch.
Make sure you've have a proper read of the Terms and Conditions, then get on snapping and tagging 📸 We look forward to seeing all your shots and trying to pick our favourites!
For everyone who enters and doesn’t win, don't fret - we’re running a free coach trip to IKEA on the 30th September. This will depart from 4 of our properties: Chapter Portobello, Chapter Kings Cross, Chapter Spitalfields and Chapter South Bank. Here’s how it will work:
Chapter Portobello will have their own coach, departing from outside the building.
If you are staying at Chapter Highbury or Islington, you will be welcome to get on the coach from Kings Cross. Don’t worry, it’s easy to get there from both of these locations. Jump on the Piccadilly line going southbound and it’s only two tube stops from Highbury, or one stop from Islington.
If you’re at Chapter Aldgate, it’s a ten minute walk to Spitalfields, where your nearest coach will be.
Lastly, if you're staying at Chapter Lewisham, get yourself to South Bank for your pick up. It'll take about 15 minutes on the overground from Lewisham to Waterloo East, and South Bank is ten minutes walk from there.
All of the coaches will be dropping you off directly back to your individual properties, so you won't need to worry about lugging your new gear back on the underground! However, we have a limit of 53 spaces per coach, so secure yourself a space as soon as you can!
