Accessible Campus Housing
The Offices of Disability Services and Housing and Residence Life work closely together to evaluate requests for housing accommodations for students with disabilities. Students requesting special accommodation or modification to University Housing must complete and submit the Request for Housing Accommodation form in order to receive consideration. In addition, the student requesting accommodation must also have a current fully completed housing application on file before the University will evaluate a request for housing accommodation. A request for housing accommodation does not guarantee a housing assignment.
The student should complete Section I and the medical provider should complete Section II. This request must be completed in its entirety before a request will be considered. All requests for accommodation must be made at least 60 days prior to arrival.
Documentation must substantiate a diagnosed impairment that is a current substantial limitation to a major life activity as it relates to housing needs. To ensure the provision of reasonable and appropriate on-campus accommodations for students, the University requires current and comprehensive documentation of the disorder from a current treatment/assessment professional qualified to make the diagnosis. (Please note, a diagnosis in and of itself does not automatically qualify for requested accommodation).
This request form must be submitted each year in order to review and renew, as appropriate, accommodations provided through the Offices of Disability Services and Housing and Residence Life.
