Medical Accommodation


The Housing Accommodations process (formerly termed “Special Needs Housing process”) is administered jointly by Student Housing and the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students (ODUS). This process is intended to provide special consideration in housing for students with medical conditions and disabilities.  This process is not intended to address requests pertaining to religious preferences, or the residential dining and residency requirement for first-year and sophomore students.

In order to be considered for a housing accommodation, students MUST submit all requests with supporting medical documentation by the respective deadlines:

  • Matriculating First-Year Students: Summer, 2022 through the Office of Disability Services.
  • Housing Accommodations Application: Applications Due Friday, February 4, 2022, at 11:59 p.m.
  • Regular Room Draw for rising Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors: Due to the schedule changes made necessary by the pandemic, fall 2022 room draw timelines will be announced during Winter-session.
  • Summer: TBD through the Interim / Summer Housing site.

While applications for housing changes based on unanticipated medical needs will be considered after these deadlines, any changes are subject to availability of appropriate housing.  Students are not obligated to accept the Housing Accommodations assignment offered. If a request does not meet the criteria for a Housing Accommodation based on documented need, students will be referred to housing for a room change

You are not obligated to accept a medical accommodation room assignment.
