Incoming Graduate Students

The Office of Disability Services (ODS) provides the opportunity for students to request housing accommodations based on a diagnosed disability. This process is not intended to address requests based on religion or gender.

Housing accommodations are considered by the Office of Disability Services for incoming graduate students who have diagnosed disabilities prior to matriculation. Students may also request housing accommodations outside of this pre-matriculation process, but any accommodations found to be reasonable and supported will be implemented based on availability of housing that aligns with the specified accommodations. 

Process to request housing accommodations

Housing accommodations requests are made through the University’s disability management system (“Accommodate”)

Housing accommodations requests will require accompanying documentation. Documentation-related guidelines can be found here. Requests for housing accommodations will not be reviewed until documentation meeting these guidelines has been uploaded into Accommodate.
