Accessible housing on campus
Priority placement for on-campus housing
In some circumstances, students with a disability or medical condition may be eligible to live on campus beyond the first year or in a particular room type.
If, as a student with a disability or a chronic medical condition, you feel that you need to live on campus or you have special requirements for on-campus housing, you must apply for housing using the online application and indicate in your application that you are a student with a disability.
The following restrictions apply:
- Your medical documentation must provide detailed information about the functional impact of your disability/chronic medical condition in relation to your request for priority access to student housing.
- You will be asked to submit your medical documentation to the DRC to review your request.
- In order to receive a recommendation for priority placement, you must have disability-related needs that cannot be met in off-campus housing.
- The presence of a disability is insufficient to qualify for priority placement. Priority placement is only considered in exceptional circumstances.
How to request housing for medical or disability-related reasons:
If you are recommended for priority placement by the DRC, you will be offered the next suitable unit that is available.
If you have questions about priority placement, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Course load requirements
All students intending to live on-campus must maintain a course load of at least nine credits per term. If you cannot maintain that course load for disability-related reasons, you may apply to the DRC for permission to live on-campus with a reduced course load. If you are granted permission, you must take a minimum of six credits per term, but preferably nine credits per term, to remain in on-campus housing.
