Housing Requests

Requests for modifications or accommodations for Residence Halls rooms must be directed to Center for Students with Disabilities.

In order to receive a housing accommodation:

  1. Students must first apply to CSD for services.
  2. The student must have a disability documented by a qualified professional. A prescription or brief note will not meet documentation guidelines, see UW-W documentation guidelines.

A medical condition in itself, does not necessarily qualify a student for accommodations.

Possible accommodations/modifications include, but are not limited to:

  • Air Conditioner
  • Single Room
  • Use of own personal furniture due to a physical or health impairment

It is recommended that all requests must be made at least eight weeks prior to the start of the semester. If you do not request your residential living accommodation in a timely manner, you may experience a delay up to eight weeks to receive the requested accommodation. Refer to Residence Life regarding room contracts and assignments.
