Transfer/Graduate/Non-Traditional Student Housing Option
Students with disabilities may request housing accommodations by:
After reviewing the student’s request and documentation of disability, ACCESS will make a recommendation regarding appropriate accommodations to Residential Life. Accommodations are granted based on level of necessity and space availability. Not every request for an accommodation, such as a private room, will be granted.
In order to receive a single room at a double rate, students with disabilities must submit clear disability-related documentation that supports the housing accommodation request. Accommodations are not provided based on preference or convenience. The following situations receive priority for housing accommodations:
All decisions regarding students with disabilities are based on a case-by-case assessment and exceptions can occur.
ACCESS determines student eligibility for specific housing accommodations directly related to documented disabilities which substantially limit the ability to function daily in a residence hall environment. Preferences not related to an ACCESS accommodation may be requested through the office of Residential Life.
It is the responsibility of the student with a disability to request accommodations within Residential Life deadlines. Late requests limit housing options within Residential Life often resulting in an inability to fulfill the approved accommodation.
If a disability-related housing accommodation request is denied, the student may appeal that decision. The student must submit a written statement of appeal to ACCESS and may include any new documentation that was not originally reviewed or available which supports the original request. The Director of ACCESS or designee will respond in writing within ten days. This will be final decision regarding the request.
