Lakeridge / Oshawa

 

Regional Education has accomodations in buildings located on Mary Street, Adelaide Street, and Simcoe Street North (please refer to MEdTech Central for apartment building numbers).  All apartment buildings contain 2-bedroom apartments and are within easy walking distance to Lakeridge Health Oshawa.

All of the Regional Education accommodations are shared with other medical students or residents.  The accommodations are co-ed, however, we do our best to try and book learners of the same gender together but sometimes that is not possible.  If you choose not to share an assigned apartment, please contact our office immediately to see if an alternate solution can be found.

Our Regional Education accommodations are for the learners use only.  Accommodations are not provided for other family members or friends (spouses, children, caregivers, etc). 

No Pets -  Please note, our property leases state "No Pets Allowed".  Please respect the wishes of the landlord and be respectful of your roommates as many learners suffer from allergies. 

No Smoking -  Smoking is NOT permitted in any of the Regional Education accommodations.

Internet -  These accomodations have been set up with a wireless high speed Internet connection.

Travel -  The cost of 1 return trip for each completed two-week time period is available for reimbursement.  All travel reimbursements are contingent upon fulfillment of learner responsibilities.

Linens
-  Bed, bath and kitchen linens are provided.  All linens used must be laundered prior to your departure.
