Does the campus need to provide housing that is accessible to students with disabilities?

Date Updated

Universities must provide accessible housing to students with disabilities if such housing is available to other students. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 require that goods, services, and activities associated with student life be accessible to students with disabilities. Students with disabilities should not be denied access to comparable housing or segregated from the general student population.

For information and resources on how to make campus housing accessible to students with disabilities, consult the Housing and Residential Life area of The Student Services Conference Room.
