Housing for Students Requiring Accommodation

Students for whom safety and proximity to essential locations—such as bathrooms, accessible entrances, transportation, and meals—must make these needs known immediately following admission, or as soon as the need is clinically documented, so that proper housing arrangements can be facilitated. Students bringing medically-related equipment should declare this to ensure adequate electrical or other considerations. In some circumstances it may be advisable to visit rooms in advance to avoid incompatible arrangements.

Clinical documentation provided to the Accessible Education Office (AEO) is always necessary to request housing assignments. Specific guidelines for such documentation may be obtained from the AEO Website. The University reserves the right to change a pre-existing housing assignment, even temporarily, if a disability-related life-safety concern exists.
