We provide reasonable housing accommodations to students who have been approved by the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSWD). They can be placed in any residence hall that meets their accommodation needs based on availability. In addition, OSWD students' room rates will be based on the residence hall they are assigned to.
During the Room Lottery, students with OSWD approvals for single rooms or specific housing accommodations will have priority to choose their rooms before the room selection begins on Thursday, June 24, 2021.
If you already have housing accommodations on file with OSWD, then you can go ahead and complete the Housing Application and the Lottery Application online.
If you do not currently have housing accommodations on file with OSWD, please contact OSWD immediately at email@example.com to request and/or apply for housing accommodations in accordance to the required medical guidelines for housing accommodations. You must get approval from the Housing Accommodation Committee (HAC) prior to being placed on the OSWD list during Room Lottery.
Students who have not participated in the Room Lottery process or missed the application deadline will automatically be placed on the waiting list. Residence Life and Housing reserves the right to assign students to vacant spaces.
Students who cancel the room assignment AFTER receiving their room assignments will automatically be charged the $500.00 cancellation fee.
