We have partnered with Omega Solutions to provide you the fastest Internet available. Your suite is equipped with WiFi access; your WiFi password is emailed to you in your move-in instructions.

NOTE: This is a ‘shared’ private network. This means that all users share the internet connection so speeds and latency may fluctuate throughout the day. Each user will be provided with a single unique password for all their devices. They will be able to connect anywhere across the property. The shared network is designed for web access, streaming video, and streaming audio. In some cases, certain applications may not be suitable for this shared network including but not limited to applications that require specific port settings, some streaming video games, and the hosting of personal or private servers. If these more advanced connections are required, it may be best to source a connection yourself from either Shaw or Telus. One unique password will be provided to each user for all their devices. PLEASE DO NOT SHARE YOUR PASSWORD WITH OTHERS AS THEY MAY BE ABLE TO ACCESS YOUR DEVICES!

Subletting your suite is an option if you are going to be traveling elsewhere during your lease. You are welcome to sublet to another student (reminder: our suites are single-occupancy only) for a period of 1 month or longer. More information on subletting here. Please note, you are still the tenant, and you are now acting as the Landlord for your subletter. You will continue to pay rent to your Landlord (VEDA), and you are responsible for collecting rent from your subletter. While we do not advertise or do viewings to help sublet your room, we do offer a Sublets Available at VEDA group for your posting convenience. Subletting can be successful Fall, Winter and Spring! Advertise early, make the effort to respond to interested parties in a timely manner and always post photos with your ads. Tenants must submit their sublet for approval before allowing access to the suite.

Our Cleaning Checklist & Repair Cost List can be viewed here. All residents should be aware that upon move-out, their suite should be left in a tidy state with no damages. Residents will be charged back, as per the list, for any damages, furniture replacement or extra cleaning required.

Tenants can rent the BBQ during regular business hours by visiting the Lakeview front desk.
1. Plan ahead! Stop by the front desk to sign out the key & tools
2. Watch this video on how to operate a BBQ to ensure you grill with safety in mind
3. Enjoy grilling & clean up after yourself!

We want all tenants to enjoy the BBQ area, and as you can imagine, safety is our number one concern. It’s everyone’s responsibility at VEDA to understand that propane gas can be dangerous if not treated with care. Please do not smoke near the BBQs. Know where the outdoor fire extinguishers are located before use. Make sure to clean up after yourself and put all garbage from your BBQ in the outdoor trash can located nearby (fines will be given for any mess/damages). Recycle wherever possible by taking your items inside & down to the waste/recycling room.

If you are locked out, here are some options:
1. Try your intercom. You can let yourself in the building by calling your cell phone from the intercom at the front entry, answering your cell phone, and pressing/holding “9” on your phone keypad.
2. If it’s during regular business hours, you can come to the front lobby to be let in. In the event that you misplaced your fob permanently, please let us know so that we can deactivate your lost fob and purchase a new one. (Replacement fees: blue fob $50, mail key $25, parkade fob $50, key tag $10)
3. If it’s after business hours, call the Resident Services line and leave a message.

TIP: Save your suite code in your phone so you don’t forget it.

Quiet Hours begin at 11PM every night. Experiencing a noise disturbance? We highly recommend first talking with your neighbour face-to-face to let them know how they are impacting you and kindly asking them to be more mindful. Often times in shared living situations, people don’t always know how they impact other people nearby. Give them the chance to improve. If an issue persists, please issue a Noise Complaint to fix@vedaliving.ca including suite, date, time and details.

Monthly fire alarm system tests occur on the last Thursday of every month. Familiarize yourself with our Fire Plan located near each elevator door. In the event of a fire alarm, please exit the building. Did you know it’s against the law to tamper with the smoke detector in your suite? Never tamper with, cover, or remove your smoke detector or you could be fined. Contact fix@vedaliving.ca immediately if there is an issue with your smoke detector.

Tenants must dispose of their garbage & recycling in the provided bins located in the waste rooms of the parkade (located in Parkade P1 near the overhead parkade door). Keep your suite clean & clear of full garbage bags or recycling containers to avoid issues with insects or pests. Remove your garbage frequently. CLICK HERE for how to sort your garbage & recycling!

In case of a fire alarm, please review the FIRE SAFETY PLAN below & know what to do, where to go and how to stay safe during a fire alarm event!

During an emergency, a fire alarm will sound, and all occupants MUST exit the building via a safe exit.
IF YOU HEAR A FIRE ALARM or DISCOVER A FIRE

• ACTIVATE the fire alarm by pulling the nearest red manual pull station
• PHONE 9-1-1 from a safe place to report a fire at: 800 OR 802 OR 840 OR 842 Academy Way, Kelowna BC
• EVACUATE the building via the nearest safe exit
• DO NOT USE the elevator
• ASSIST people who require assistance
• PROCEED to the Pre-Designated Assembly Area & remain calm
• WALK, DO NOT RUN

THE PRE-DESIGNATED ASSEMBLY AREA IS LABELED ‘MEET HERE’ ON THE BELOW SITE PLANS FOR EACH COMMUNITY.

 

When you hear the fire alarm, feel the door with the back of your hand before slowly opening to ensure the fire is not on the other side. If it is hot, leave it closed and use your alternate escape route. If it feels normal, brace your body against the door and open it a crack; be prepared to slam it shut if heat or smoke starts to rush in.

If it’s safe to exit:
  • Leave your room and close your door.
  • Alert the occupants on either side of you and leave the building immediately.
  • Use the stairwell closest to your room.
  • Meet at the designated assembly area outside.
If you cannot leave your room:
  • Protect yourself from smoke by staying low to the ground.
  • Use damp towels or duct tape to cover the cracks around your door, vents, etc.
  • Stay in your room until you are rescued.

If you must use an escape route where there is smoke, stay as low as possible to breathe the cleaner air. If all exits are blocked by fire or smoke, enter a room preferably with an exterior window, and seal the cracks in the door with available materials. Phone 9-1-1 to report your situation, and attract the attention of someone outside the building by any possible means.

 

If you know of people who have been unable to evacuate the building, inform the arriving emergency personnel immediately.

When you have reached the outside of the building, move away from the exit allowing others behind you to emerge.

Do NOT attempt to drive your vehicle from the parking area.

Do NOT re-enter the building until the fire department has given the “ALL CLEAR” and it is safe to do so.

 

Any misuse of hallway extinguishers will not be tolerated and will be assessed a $100 fine in addition to possible charges by the Fire Department. Please acquaint yourself with the location of fire equipment.

Smoke and heat detectors are inside each suite. These devices are checked annually to ensure continued safetyA fee of $200 will be charged if smoke detectors are found to be disconnected or covered by Residents. Please report any problems you notice with any of the fire safety equipment to VEDA management immediately.

There should be no need for you to test or tamper with your alarm. The Fire Department has a zero-tolerance with regard to tampering with fire safety equipment. Management must make every effort to identify those who tamper with equipment and enforce disciplinary action. In addition, charges could be laid under the Fire Protection and Preventions Act.
