One of the best ways to participate in campus life is to live in residence!
This process is designed for students who have, or suspect they may have, a disability for which they would like to request housing accommodations.
Housing accommodations can be made for medical, sensory, physical, environmental, psychological, allergy/dietary restrictions, or mental health conditions.
The process for requesting a housing accommodation is as follows:
- Download and print off our Housing Disability Verification Form.
- Make an appointment with your registered health care professional to complete the Housing Disability Verification Form.
- Upload your completed Housing Disability Verification Form as soon as possible.
For incoming students participating in the 2019 First year residence guarantee to be guaranteed a reasonable accommodation based on their documented need:
- June 3, 2019
For any other student type:
- We accept documentation on a rolling basis. Please follow the process outlined above.
- Once the recommendation is received the student will receive a residence assignment that meets the documented need or be re-assigned to an appropriate space.
- For academic accommodations please register with Accessibility Services.
- For dietary accommodations please connect with Food Services on how they can best accommodate you in residence.
- Taller than 6’4”/193 cm? Please indicate this on the application form.
- Please note that housing accommodations are only for the student requesting the accommodation, and may not include current or potential roommates.
- While a student may feel strongly they should be placed in a specific residence, assignments are based on space availability, needs identified in the documentation received and adherence to the deadline.
- A student does have the right to waive the recommendation to stay in their current room assignment.
- If you have been assigned to one of the University College Residences, you will need to connect directly with them for questions regarding their facilities.
