Residential Life offers a variety of living environments that accommodate many different lifestyle needs. Within this assortment of provisions, there are a limited number of medical single rooms available for students with severe medical, psychological, psychiatric, mobility or visual or hearing impairment related conditions, whereby the symptoms of such conditions prohibit the student from living with a roommate.
Students who feel that they may have such a condition may request a single room accommodation by contacting Peggy Perno, Director of Student Accessibility and Accommodation at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will need to have your treating professional complete a Documentation of Disability Form for Medical Single, and submit that form along with the Student Intake Form.
Documentation must include all of the following:
If you are eligible, a recommendation will be made to the Director of Residence Life.
Some students for reasons related to their disability may need an accessible room or some other type of housing accommodation. To request a housing adjustment, contact Peggy Perno at email@example.com. You will need to have your treating professional complete a Documentation form and submit that along with the Student Intake Form.
Information about the diagnosis and treatment of your condition remains confidential. It is entirely your choice to share or not share this information.
In order to be approved for an emotional support animal, you need to have a psychological disability. In addition, your treating professional must explain how an emotional support animal will mitigate your symptoms. The benefits of the animal must go beyond the benefits of a pet. To request this accommodation, have your treating professional complete Medical Documentation for Housing Issues (other than single room requests) bring this form along with a Student Intake Form to SAA and schedule an appointment to meet with the Director, Peggy Perno.
