Requests for modifications or accommodations for University Housing rooms must be directed to the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD). CSD is the designated campus entity to collect and review all disability documentation as it relates to housing and academic accommodations. CSD staff communicate and collaborate with University Housing staff.
Housing accommodation process:
A medical condition, in itself, does not necessarily qualify a student for accommodations.
Possible accommodations/modifications include, but are not limited to:
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 of up to eight weeks to receive the requested accommodation. Refer to University Housing regarding room contracts and assignments.
Requests are generally denied for three reasons:
Remember, housing assignments will be based on disability-related needs, not requests to live in a specific residence hall. Not all residence halls are able to accommodate students in the same way. If a student's top choices for residence halls are already filled or are unable to meet the student's disability-related needs, the student will be assigned to another residence hall. For instance, if a student with limited mobility is requesting a specific, centrally-located hall due to mobility concerns and that hall is either full or is not equipped with other accessible amenities, the student may be placed in a another centrally-located hall that can accommodate their needs.
