Residential Accommodations

Accommodations in Residence Life are based on a medical, psychological, or other disability-related needs and must be supported by documentation.  Documentation from an appropriate professional should include:

  • A diagnostic statement of the disability
  • A clear description of the needed accommodation(s)
  • An explanation of how the requested accommodation relates to the impact of the disability

All disability-related housing requests are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students must complete a housing request from and pay the required deposit. They should then contact the DRC for an intake appointment to discuss their housing accommodations.

Current students living in housing, should contact the DRC for an intake appointment. In both cases, the student should bring their completed intake form and supporting medical documentation.

Every effort will be made to provide requested accommodations; however, it may be necessary to substitute equally effective alternatives.  Students who use wheelchairs or scooters will be assigned wheelchair accessible housing.  Availability of housing is limited and spaces are assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis.  Students who need accessible housing should contact both Residence life and the DRC to make an appointment when they send in their application to Residence Life.

For more information, please contact the DRC.
