Simcoe Street North Units

Regional Education has three 2-bedroom apartments located on Simcoe Street North (please refer to MEdTech Central for apartment building number).  The apartment complex is within a 5 minute walk from Lakeridge Health Oshawa.  Click on Unit 2, 3, or 4 above to view photos.


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.

Parking - designated parking is provided in front of the apartment building.  Parking Map

Keys & Parking Permit -  Pick up keys & Queen's parking permit from the Telecommunication Office at Lakeridge Health Oshawa - ask at Patient Information Desk (to your right) inside main door of hospital.  The keys and parking permit must be returned prior to your departure from Oshawa.  If the keys and parking permit are not returned the learner will be held responsible for covering the $50 replacement cost.  The keys and parking permit are both needed for the next learner who arrives the following day.

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.

Please Note -  We recommend you arrange for a long distance calling card as the Regional Education accommodations do not support long distance telephone service. 

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

Garbage & Recycling - Garbage bins are kept in the shed at the south side of the house, one bin per unit.  Garbage collection is every 2nd week and must be taken out to the curb on Tuesdays Week 1 (see attached schedule) and bins returned to the shed after collection.  Two recycling bins per unit are located outside the shed.  You are responsible for taking your recycling to the curb every week and bringing bins back in after collection.  Please click on link for more Garbage & Recylcing Information.

Travel reimbursement is contingent upon fulfillment of LEARNER RESPONSIBILITIES.
