Housing accommodations are offered to students who are approved by Disability Services based on the type of housing that is currently available.
Campus housing is an independent, highly social environment comprised of shared living space, common-access bathrooms, and a wide variation in noise level. For medical and psychological reasons, some students request consideration for a variety of nonstandard housing elements ranging from dietary restrictions to medically necessary single rooms. To substantiate the need for assistance, we require clear documentation of limitations in function or performance specifically as it relates to the housing assigned. Substantiated need is constituted by a severe or chronic disabling condition that has been well-documented by an appropriate, qualified professional. The goal of Housing Services is to provide students with an equal opportunity to safe and supportive residential communities.
Alternate housing requests may not be the best option for students who have concerns about their living situation. Emmons Health and Counseling Center and the Disability Services Office have resources to assist students with communication and problem-solving skills, study habits, and communal-living tools.
To request special housing arrangements, students should contact the Disability Services Office for further instructions.
