Free Parking is available at the Regional Education apartment complex. Contact Jean Bedford for assigned parking number.
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).
Please note, our property lease states "No Pets Allowed". Please respect the wishes of the landlord and be respectful of your roommates as many learners suffer from allergies.
Smoking in any of the Regional Education accommodations is NOT permitted.
Also note there is no long distance telephone service in the accommodation. We suggest learners requiring access to long distance arrange for a calling card.
