Housing Accommodations

Accommodations available:

  • A student with a disability may request that special housing needs related to his or her disability be addressed in his or her Accommodation Plan.

Examples of Disabilities may include:

  • Use of unusually bulky equipment
  • Needs that create special mobility, safety, or privacy
  • Assistance Animals

Since an important component of an education is to learn to live and work with others, it is University policy to include students with disabilities in communal living arrangements to the greatest degree possible.

Make a request:

  • New students and continuing students requesting special housing considerations for the first time must complete and submit the Accommodation Request Form and documentation of disability to AES. Continuing students with housing accommodations, who wish to have the same accommodations for the following year, should notify AES by February 1.

Please refer below to determine when the request and documentation is due to AES.
