Housing Accommodations & Emotional Support Animals
Students with disabilities who have specific needs related to housing must register with the DRC to request accommodations. As with all accommodation requests, we engage with students in an individualized process to determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations.
The Director of the Disability Resource Center will review all requests for housing accommodations, emotional support animals, and meal plan adjustments for students with disabilities.

Rooming with or near Friends
Students who would like to request to be housed with or near friends or in a specific location on campus, please following the general Housing & Residence Life guidance to submit those requests separately. Please be aware that decisions made by the DRC are only for the student making the request and are based on disability-related need(s). Determinations do not include students without disabilities, and do not circumvent the regular housing selection process.
