8.04 Housing for Students with Disabilities
Students with disabilities for whom safety and proximity to essential locations is necessary, such as bathrooms, accessible entrances, transportation, and meals, must make these needs known immediately following admission, or as soon as the need is clinically documented, so that proper campus area housing arrangements (if available) can be facilitated. Students bringing medically related equipment should so declare to ensure adequate electrical or other considerations. In some circumstances, visiting rooms in advance may be advisable to avoid incompatible arrangements.
Clinical documentation provided to the HMS Student Disability Services Coordinator (see Section 10.03) is always necessary to request such housing assignments. The University reserves the right to change a pre-existing housing assignment, even temporarily, if a disability-related life-safety concern exists.
