Housing Accommodations Deadlines and Additional Requirements
Residential Life collaborates with Student Accessibility Services to coordinate housing accommodations for students with disabilities that impact one's living situation. To be considered for housing accommodations, the student must submit a SAS Intake Form, with supporting documentation, to SAS. Please see the section on How to Apply for Accommodations above.
- In addition to filing an application for a disability accommodation and submitting the supporting documentation, students must meet all housing deposit deadlines.
- First-year and transfer students must submit the application for disability accommodations and supporting documentation by June 15.
- Returning students must complete the application for disability accommodations and supporting documentation by January 1.
- Any enrolled student who has a disability and would like to request special housing should submit an application for disability accommodations to SAS as quickly as possible.
Students requesting housing accommodations are advised to contact Residential Life and submit Student Accessibility Services Intake Form along with supporting documentation as soon as possible. Students must always be mindful of housing deadlines, policies, and deposit requirements. Reasonable and appropriate accommodations depend upon the disability, the housing environment, and the steps necessary to create equal access for one's living situation. Requested accommodations need not be granted if it is deemed unreasonable if alternative accommodations are available, and/or if the student has already received desired placement through the normal room assignment processes.
Please be advised that single rooms are reserved for individuals with specific living needs. The housing accommodation process considers access for living purposes only and not for other aspects of the college experience, such as studying. In general, diagnoses such as ADD/ADHD or Specific Learning Disability do not lend themselves to single room accommodations. A single room cannot guarantee a quiet environment. There are many options on campus where a student can study in an environment suitable for one's situation. We will evaluate each request on a case-by-case basis.
The provision of housing accommodations does not guarantee any request for a specific residence hall or theme housing. The University will make every attempt to provide the most appropriate housing assignment. Prompt submissions ensure adequate time to assess an accommodations request. Applications and documents received after housing deadlines may affect any assignment provided. Implementation of a housing accommodation is subject to available inventory at any given time.
