The medical and accommodation pre-assign process is designed to meet housing needs of students who have a documented medical condition or other significant life circumstance that require specific housing accommodations.
If one's application is verified and accepted the student will be offered appropriate housing based on their need and will be assigned housing prior to the Specialty (Substance-Free), Blocking, and General Lotteries.
** Note: We do not provide "allergy housing" because no such option exists.
Monday, February 11th - Friday, March 1st
The application form for medical and accommodation pre-assign housing is available online. Two of the pages are to be completed by the applicant, with the other two to be completed by the applicant's physician/religious leader/or other appropriate authority that can comment specifically on the reason for the request. (Medical requests must contain documentation from a physician). The entire application is due to Allen Harrison, Associate Dean of Students For Diversity and Accessibility by Friday, March 1st at 4:00pm. No applications will be accepted after this date.
***Please provide as much detail as possible on your application***
Application Acceptance or Denial
Monday, March 4th - Friday, March 15th
Once all applications have been received, a confidential committee of campus administrators with various appropriate areas of expertise will decide if each student's request is necessary and appropriate. By no later than Friday, March 15th each applicant will be notified of the outcome of their request. If the request is accepted the student will be offered up to three options of pre-assign housing. If these options are not accepted by the student, the student will be required to participate in the Specialty, Blocking, and/or General Lotteries. The decision of the committee is final.
Friday, March 15th-Thursday, April 11th
After a student's request is accepted s/he will be offered up to three housing options based on the medical needs and/or accommodations noted in the application. Upon the student's notification of acceptance and housing options, the student will have until Thursday, April 11th at 4:00pm to notify the Office of Residential Life of which housing option s/he prefers. Once an option is chosen, it can no longer be changed and the student waives her/his right to participate in any other lottery process.
If a student fails to choose a housing option by the deadline, that student will be required to participate in the Specialty, Blocking, and/or General Lottery and will forgo any and all medical pre-assign options.
