What is the process for Requesting a Housing Accommodation?

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 conditions that may require a single room accommodation, accessible room, or other types of housing adjustments will need to complete the Request Disability Accommodations form.
 

What is the process for requesting an Emotional Support Animal?

An ESA may be a dog or cat (most common), small bird, rabbit, hamster, gerbil, fish, turtle, or other small, domesticated animal that is traditionally kept in the home for pleasure.  Generally, a dog must be at least 9 months of age to live on campus to assure that the dog is reliably housebroken, not disruptive to other residents, and has all of the shots necessary to make it safe to be around humans and other animals (that may be in residence). Any student, who is asking for an emotional support animal accommodation, must have a psychological disability with symptoms that significantly impair their ability to function. The requested ESA must  significantly reduce the disabling symptoms. Proof of ownership (adoption or veterinary records) is required. 

Have your treating professional complete the Medical Documentation for Emotional Support Animal Form. This documentation must be submitted with your request.
