House Staff Association

The House Staff Association is where you will come together with your fellow residents to plan activities, hear speakers present about a variety of hospital and medical issues, and offer observations about your experience in our Residency Programs.

The House Staff meets every other month and is led by a board of officers, comprised of your peers, who serve as your representatives in planning activities and expressing the views of the group including curriculum, management and work schedules. They plan and implement activities focusing on social, service and professional development.


Furnished apartments for visiting students are available on a first-come, first served basis. Housing assignments are made based upon the number of students pursuing clinical rotations at UHSH at any given time. Students may be asked to share an apartment with another student. Students pursuing concurrent rotations are not guaranteed to stay in the same apartment. The maximum stay for visiting students is three months.


  • Same accommodations as resident housing, in addition, student apartments are fully furnished - kitchen, bedroom, living room and dining room.
  • Students are asked to bring their own: linens, pots and pans, utensils, dishes, glassware.

Rent /Security Deposit *Subject to change

  • Rent for students completing core rotations* at UHSH is $500/month and is pro-rated based on length of stay. Each student is required to pay a $100 security deposit which is returned at the completion of their rotation provided their apartment is left free of any damage and at an acceptable level of cleanliness.
