Accommodation Requests

Generally, residence and room assignments are made based on a randomized lottery system that takes into consideration your preferences.

However, we recognize that some students have unique circumstances that require special consideration. If this describes you, here’s what you need to know:

  • We can’t guarantee that all requests will be accommodated, but we will work with you in finding a living situation that meets your needs.
  • If you are requesting special consideration because of medical, mental health issues or disabilities, we ask that you have a professional who is working with you directly to provide confirmation on the request form that can be downloaded below. If citing lifestyle, cultural or religious reasons, an attesting professional's supporting document/signature is not always necessary. We will contact you if we require additional information.
  • We will keep the information you share confidential but may need to consult with others in order to provide you with the most suitable accommodation.
  • When you have completed the form, including the section completed by the professional, submit it to Residence Admissions by email or fax.

Medical Marihuana

In consideration of revised legislation around the use of marihuana for medical purposes, Student Housing Services, in consultation with campus stakeholders, has developed a Medical Marihuana Policy for accommodating authorized individuals. This Policy is intended to balance the need to accommodate the medical needs of an individual with the potential impact on the health and safety of the surrounding residence community, as well as meeting any legal obligations that may exist.
