We want to ensure you have the right tools and services to help you succeed on your placement. If you have concerns which you and your supervisor cannot work through together, please contact the Academic Office; we are here to support you. The Academic Office is located in AM.07 (in the administrative building, across the bridge on the main floor) and is open Mon-Fri from 09:00-17:00. Phone and email contacts are in the Contact Us box below.

Break and Eating Spaces

Learners are reminded to only eat in designated areas where it is possible to maintain physical distance, to only remove your mask while eating, and to not share food.

  • Designated areas include the main floor cafeteria (behind Tim Horton’s) and the main floor auditorium (M.160).
  • The main floor clinical library also allows food and drink if learners maintain physical distance and take their garbage out with them.
  • When open for the season, outdoor spaces include the 10th floor rooftop patio and main floor balcony (off the cafeteria).

Shared Spaces and Computer Workstations

Due to physical distancing restrictions on the patient care units, learners and supervisors should endeavor to use the meeting and work spaces and computer workstations listed in the below table as much as possible. Note, these rooms are available 24/7 with your access card.

Keeping your items safe

Day Lockers are located in the Wellness Centre change rooms on the Loading Level of the hospital (LL.041 and LL.037), and are available to all learners. Learners must provide their own locks and empty their lockers, including the lock, after each shift.

Arrangements are often made on each unit to maintain security of personal items for medical and health discipline students. Please discuss with your supervisor the best option for you.

Parking

Underground parking at Hennick Bridgepoint is available for students via Jack Layton Way (off Broadview) or via St. Matthews Road (off Gerrard). For a map, view the Parking page.

You may request a student parking pass when you collect your student security access card from the Security Desk on your first day. The student fee is $7 per exit.

Load the student parking pass with funds at the automated payment machine at the elevator lobby. You may use cash (exact change is recommended) or a credit card (payment in $35 increments only). On your last day, return your parking pass to the Security Desk. Note - there is no reimbursement of any remaining credit on the student parking card at the end of your placement.

There is also a Green P parking lot at 573 Gerrard on the south side of Gerrard, just west of Broadview. Street parking is available in the neighbourhood but very limited.
