If you plan to study abroad, participate in an internship program, or take a leave of absence in the fall of 2017, but are not certain that you will do so (i.e., you have not yet been accepted or are unsure that you will participate), then you should register for housing and participate in the room selection process for the 2017-2018 academic year. If and when it becomes clear that you will study abroad, participate in an internship program, or take a leave of absence, please notify the Office of Housing and Residential Education in writing of your plans immediately.

Any student requesting reasonable accommodation for housing due to a medical, psychological or disability impairment must submit full and current documentation to the EAD (Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action and Disability Services) Office. The Office of Housing Assignments will not accept any documentation or housing requests regarding a student’s medical, psychological or disability related condition. If EAD determines that a student is eligible for reasonable accommodation, the Office of Housing Assignments will contact the student about their assignment. The Office of Housing Assignments makes every effort to find appropriate and reasonable accommodation as recommended by EAD. All requests for the 2017-2018 academic year must be submitted to EAD no later than 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 15.
