Special Housing Accommodations

If you have a medical, psychological condition or other type of disability that requires special housing accommodations, we require you to participate in a three-step request process.

Step #1 of the process requires you to write a brief letter describing the type of housing accommodation you are requesting and the rationale of why you are making a request. (Please note that this letter must be written by the student, not a member of the student’s family.)

Step #2 of the process requires verification of your condition by your physician and/or therapist. Please have your physician and/or therapist complete the form below. (Please note that there is a section at the top of this form that you must complete prior to giving it to your physician and/or therapist.)
