Please follow our Housing Accommodation Request Process to request disability-related housing accommodations. After reviewing the request process, please complete the Housing Accommodation Request Form and return it to the Accessible Education Services office. Please allow adequate time to process requests that may require Accessible Education Services to contact your medical provider.
Accessible Education Services seeks to ensure consistency in evaluating requests while simultaneously exploring each individual situation before making recommendations to Housing & Conferences. It is our practice to determine the housing accommodation that provides the most traditional Willamette college experience. The learning environment and residential living are central to the Willamette University experience and mission. On-campus residences provide out-of-class living and learning spaces where socializing occurs; they are not the primary resource for studying. (See WU study areas.)
The process for seeking housing accommodations due to disability can be lengthy. We encourage you to submit your request as early as possible. If submitted less than a month in advance of move-in or housing selection, the request will still be considered, but options for accommodation will be considerably more limited. Approval may take longer if the documentation does not fully support the request as necessary due to a disability.
