The Residential Life office provides accessible on-campus living arrangements for students with disabilities. Wheelchair accessible accommodations are available in several centrally located residence halls and in the apartment complexes on the periphery of campus. Rooms with visual fire alarms are available to students with hearing impairments, upon request, and TTYs and volume control equipped phones can be secured through the university's Telecommunications Office. Students requiring specialized housing accommodations should indicate their need on their housing request form and should contact the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) office several months in advance of their anticipated arrival on campus. While the University does not provide personal attendant care services, the SSD office can refer you to appropriate home care agencies and can assist you in advocating with them for your needs.
