ACCESS works with students who have certified, documented disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Documentation will be required in order to fairly and equitably evaluate Disability Related Residential Life Accomodation Requests.
Students must provide documentation that specifically addresses the need for a Disability Related Residential Life Accommodation.
Please be aware that a diagnosis in and of itself does not automatically qualify a student for a Disability Related Residential Life Accommodation.
All Disability Related Residential Life Accommodation Requests are determined on a case-by-case basis by ACCESS.
Accommodation recommendations are not location specific. Accommodations can often be provided via many housing options allowing for the types of environmental controls recommended and deemed reasonable/appropriate.
ACCESS and Residential Life may work collaboratively along with other departments on campus in order to determine reasonable and appropriate solutions to requests in situations where requests do not necessitate specific accommodation.
