A few moments ago, the Management Office received a few calls about a strong odor of gas. Upon checking out the reports, it became clear that the odor was originating from outside the building.

This was confirmed by Swarthmore College, who also received multiple reports of a gas odor. They informed us that there are several different reports coming in over the police radio.

Therefore, for the next hour or so, we are shutting down both air handlers until the problem is either determined or is resolved.

Thank you for understanding in this matter. Any questions, please contact the Management Office at 610-544-6000.


On Saturday, November 2, our service company came out to install the new computer board. Unfortunately the elevator only ran for a few minutes before it went down again. The tech tried to determine the cause of the malfunction but was unable to do so.

Therefore they are sending out an investigator to further look into the issues that are leading to the malfunction. We hope to have someone out here by tomorrow.

Thank you for your understanding while we work to resolve this ongoing issue.


Unfortunately the #4 elevator isn’t running. The service company came out and determined a computer board malfunctioned and a new one needed to be ordered. We hope to have the new board tomorrow, which will be installed as soon as it is received.

In the meantime, the other Princeton elevator is running, along with the 2 elevators in the Harvard building.

Thank you for your understanding while we work to resolve this issue.


Management wanted to alert all residents of information we’ve received from Delaware County Emergency Services. “The Delaware County 911 Services is receiving numerous reports, from several counties, of a Fuel/Gas odors across Delaware County.

If we receive any updates, Management will post it on the Strath Haven website.


Today we activated the buildings’ heating system.

If you have one of the few remaining, older convectors, then you need to switch your thermostat from SUMMER to WINTER and set the desired temperature.

For those residents with the new convectors, the switch should be automatic, you will just need to adjust the temperature.

Please notify the Management Office if you do not have heat. We can be reached at 610-544-6000


Effective today, Tuesday, October 8, they AC system has been turned off due to the fall temperatures. We are in the process of prepping the heating system in anticipation of activating it later this month.

On Saturday, October 5 from approximately 8:30 am to 3 pm, there will be a barrier on one side of the parking lot entrance. The barrier is being temporarily installed with a sign stating “PRIVATE PROPERTY – RESIDENT PARKING ONLY”.

We are doing this in an effort to alert people attending the Swarthmore Presbyterian church fair that parking is not permitted in our lots. Hopefully it won’t be an issue. Once the fair is over, the barriers will be removed.

If you have any questions, please contact the Management Office at 610-544-6000.
