Room Reservation: Medical Accommodations

Medical Accommodations

General Information:

The Office of Student Accessibility Services (SAS) encourages timeliness in submitting requests for housing accommodations.  It is strongly recommended that students who wish to request housing accommodations, submit their completed request packets by March 15, 2020 to allow time for SAS to review the requests.

Determining accommodations is an interactive process between you (the student), SAS and other relevant parties (as determined by SAS) and reviewing your request may take at least two weeks to process once all materials have been submitted.  Your request will not be reviewed until the application, personal statement and documentation (if needed) have been received by the office.

Students requesting a housing accommodation must be eligible to live in university housing, which includes submitting a general housing application and deposit. 

Housing Selection Dates & Building Information: 

On April 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, and 15th students with approved for medical accommodations will be required to email the housing office (, choose their housing assignment for 2020-2021, and sign a housing agreement. Approval for an accommodation due to a disability is not designed to provide students with a room selection advantage with respect to building selection. Unless the granted accommodation requires a specific building, students granted medical accommodations will be required to choose a room in a building commensurate with where they would be placed if participating in the main room selection process. For this reason, students granted a housing accommodation will be limited to the following buildings, based on their room selection numbers (unless the selection of a different building is necessary to meet the specified accommodation):

  • 7.0+ 182 33 Beekman Double

  • 0—6.999 All Other Available Rooms

  • Students can only choose a single as a medical accommodation if the approved accommodation specifies that a single room is required

  • Students whose accommodation is a single may be assignned to a double-room-as-a-single in Maria's Tower.
