Cape Cod - Free at Condo Housing

The Cape Cod condominium housing is in very close proximity/walking distance to Cape Cod Hospital. The condominium parking requires the usage of a parking tag to hang in your vehicle. Your vehicle will be towed at your expense if you do not use the tag that will be assigned to you.

There is a pickup and drop-off system for the parking tags through the Office of Student Affairs which will be communicated to you as your Cape Cod rotation approaches. You MUST return your assigned parking tag to Student Affairs promptly when your rotation is complete.*

*Returning your parking tag is a requirement for a grade being sent for your transcript. 
Your clerkship will be considered incomplete if you do not return your parking pass, which may impact your progression in the curriculum

While Student Affairs manages distribution of the parking tags, they belong to the condominium complex. We are only afforded a finite amount. We do not want students rotating after you to be adversely affected, and we do not want to lose condominium parking privileges for our students. It is imperative that you adhere to all rules. Thank you.
