Non-Standard Accommodations

Disability-Related Living Accommodations

If you have any non-standard housing related needs, please describe them in the Special Needs field of the online housing application.

Please notify us of any non-standard housing related needs by Friday,  March 30, 2018, in order for the Summer Session Housing Office to best be able to accommodate your needs in time for your arrival.
