Housing Accommodation Information for Prospective Students

The Office of Academic Advising coordinates with the Health Center, the Office of Residential and First Year Programs, Facilities, and the Office of Student Activities and Greek Life to provide support for students with medical conditions and disabilities who request housing accommodations. Each request for accommodation will be considered individually based on the accommodation(s) requested and the documentation provided.

Important notes:

  • Many campus buildings do not have built-in air conditioning or elevators.
  • There are very few spaces on campus that have private kitchens; these are reserved for students with the most significant medical needs that cannot be met with other accommodations.
  • There are a limited number of single occupancy rooms on campus; these are reserved for students with the most significant medical needs that cannot be met with other accommodations.
  • The dining center can meet the dietary needs of students with a variety of medical conditions, food sensitivities and allergies. Dining accommodations will only be considered if the dining center staff determines that they cannot meet a student’s needs.
  • Wheelchair accessible housing options are available in some (but not all) first year and upper class residences.
  • Roommate requests are not considered in the housing accommodation process.

Common Housing Accommodations

Common housing accommodations include (but are not limited to):

  • Medically necessary air conditioner
  • Ground floor room
  • Limited use bathroom (shared with a small number of other students)
  • Kitchen access (note: many buildings have common or shared kitchens; students should plan to utilize their own pots, pans, and utensils)
  • Single room
  • Emotional support animals

Fraternity Housing Accommodations

The College coordinates accommodations for students residing in College-owned fraternity houses (Phi Gamma Delta, Sigma Chi, Phi Delta Theta, Alpha Tau Omega). A fraternity member will not be excused from living in their fraternity house as an accommodation unless their approved accommodation cannot be met in the fraternity house.

Accommodations for students residing in privately owned fraternity houses (Lambda Chi Alpha, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Sigma Nu) must be coordinated with the fraternities themselves.
