HOUSING ACCOMMODATIONS


Living on campus is an important part of the college student experience. The college strives to provide access to this part of the college experience to all students. Students with disabilities who plan to live on campus should complete their housing accommodation request before June of each year for incoming August housing placement. Housing accommodation requests are approved as available after June of each year for the ensuing academic year.


Please note that accommodations are only for your LIVING SPACE. Your residence hall room is not deemed your only location for studying, therefore requests for a single room based on studying issues will not be considered.


Residence Hall Accommodations include, but are not limited to:

  • ADA accessible rooms or bathrooms
  • Strobe light equipped rooms for fire and doorbell
  • Single rooms (limited)
  • Service and assistance animals

HOUSING ACCOMMODATION FEATURES


ADA Accessible Bathroom and Room Features

Accessible bathrooms have an accessible toilet, sink, and a roll-in shower. Students will provide their own shower bench or chair. Bathrooms are generally shared between two or four students. ADA accessible rooms and bathrooms are both available as single rooms and double occupancy rooms.


ADA Single Room Features

Single room options are limited availability. A room can be assigned if you use a personal care giver. If you are eligible for these accommodations, room options will be discussed with you. Single rooms share a bathroom with an adjoining room.


Strobe Light Equipped Room Features

Rooms are equipped for strobe light for smoke and fire detection system. Rooms also use a strobe light as the doorbell signal. Rooms are available in both residence halls.
