Housing Accommodations

Students with disabilities and/or medical conditions that require a specific type of housing assignment may request housing accommodations through DSS. DSS partners with Department of Housing and Residence Life to coordinate appropriate and accessible room assignments based on documented need.

Returning students must complete the Housing Accommodation Request Form and submit to DSS by March 15, 2024.  First-year and transfer students must complete the Housing Accommodation Request Form and submit to DSS by May 15, 2024.

For any student seeking to apply for a support animal, in addition to the 2024-2025 Housing Accommodation Request Form you will need to also submit the Support Animal Request Form by March 11, 2024 for returning students and May 1, 2024 for incoming students.

Things To Remember

  • Students must complete the DSS Housing Accommodation Request each year if they wish to continue receiving housing accommodations.
  • Requests for accommodations are considered based on need and availability.
  • Determinations are made by a committee of appropriate University Officials.
  • Students will be notified of a decision via university email, in April for returning students, and in June for incoming students. 
  •  Students may submit a housing accommodation request form or support animal request form past the above posted deadlines to be reviewed if new needs emerge past the deadlines. DSS does not have any saved housing, so any accommodations to be provided outside of the initial timeframe for housing placements are considered based on what rooms, if any, are available to accommodate the need. Any needs supported by DSS that do not have availability will go on a list pending placement should a space open up during the year.
  • Questions about costs and fees should be directed to the Office of Housing and Residence Life.
  • Students who wish to live on campus must be registered for a full-time course load of 12 credits, unless alternative arrangements have been made through DSS.
  • Students will be contacted by an administrator from the Office of Housing and Residence Life (HRL) to discuss the implementation of approved housing accommodation.
