Housing Accommodation Requests
This process is for students who wish to have additional consideration given to their housing assigment due to a disability.
You must personally inform us of your needs prior to or at the time you submit your Housing Contract. Action plans from elementary - high school do not apply to college and campus offices are not legally permitted to share your medical information. If you previously told Admissions, your adviser, your professor, etc. they CANNOT tell us.
To ensure your needs are met, you must go through this process. Don't assume your needs will be met based only on your preferences.
The Accommodation Process
Allergies - Of the 19 residence halls on the ISU campus, only seven are air-conditioned. As such, most new students are assigned non-air-conditioned housing. Requests for air-conditioning due to allergies/asthma are only considered if they have been diagnosed by a qualified medical provider who has determined that the student is disabled by the condition. In air-conditioned buildings, air-conditioning is typically only on through the first four weeks of fall classes and the last two weeks of spring classes.
Assistance Animals - If you have documented need for a service animal or a support animal, in addition to the above process, you must also complete an Animals in Residence Form. Please contact the Student Accessibility Services office for information.
Meal Plan Accommodations - ISU Dining is committed to offering options that meet the needs of special / restricted diets. For more information, please refer to the ISU Dining web site.
Other - The Department of Residence does not make assignments that would result in discriminations based upon race, ethnicity, sex, pregnancy, color, religion, national origin, physical or mental disability, age (40 and over), marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, status as a U.S. veteran (disabled, Vietnam, or other), or any other status protected by university policy or local, state, or federal law.
