On-Campus Housing


The Disability Programs & Resource Center (DPRC) works in collaboration with University Housing Program to provide reasonable accommodations within our residential facilities for students with disabilities. Applying for University Housing and requesting a housing accommodation through DPRC are two related but separate activities. Students who do not complete the application and License Agreement in the suggested time frames are not guaranteed a housing accommodation. Requests for reasonable accommodations for University Housing are processed by DPRC in the order received.
