Non-Academic accommodations may include student housing and campus accessibility needs.

Eligibility for a housing accommodation includes full-time, undergraduate students who wish to live in College housing, are in good judicial and financial standing with the College, have submitted the Residence Life housing lease and deposit by the noted deadline, are currently registered or in the process of registering with Student Accessibility and Accommodations (SAA), and have needs that may medically necessitate a housing accommodation. Examples include:

  • Students who have mobility needs that cannot be met in a traditional room.
  • Students who have medical needs that involve extensive apparatus or medicine regimens that may not be conducive in a traditional room.
