Students that have a disability that affects housing needs need to register with Student Accessibility so that they can work with the office to explore the possibilities. They will need to be attentive to the deadlines posted by the Housing & Residence Life office for requesting accommodations and note that housing accommodations are based on availability.
Documentation regarding housing accommodations should include the information found on the Housing Accommodation Disability Verification Form.
The Office of Student Accessibility will contact students who have previously been approved for housing accommodations during the spring semester to confirm renewal of accommodations for the upcoming academic school year.
