Housing Accommodation Requests
Accommodation / action plans from elementary, middle, or high school do not follow you to college. Unlike those institutions, we are not legally permitted to share your medical information with other offices - nor they with us. If you have previously told an Admissions representative, your adviser, your professor, etc. - unless you gave them specific, written, permission to inform us - they CANNOT tell us. You must personally inform us of your needs prior to or at the time you submit your Housing Contract.
The Accommodation Process
Allergies - 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. 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. 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 Disability Resources 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.
