Housing Requests

Based on Disability Related Needs

Housing assignments and the residential learning environment are integral parts of Denison University programs. A team carefully evaluates all requests for need-based housing assignments. Below is a summary of the factors considered when evaluating housing requests.

Severity of the Condition

  • Is the impact of the condition life threatening if the request is not met?
  • Is there a negative health impact that may be permanent if the request is not met?
  • Is the request an integral component of a treatment plan for the condition in question?
  • What is the likely impact on academic performance if the request is not met?
  • What is the likely impact on social development if the request is not met?
  • What is the likely impact on the student’s level of comfort if the request is not met?

Timing of the Request

  • Was the request made with an initial housing request?
  • Was the request made before the deadline for housing requests for the semester in question?
  • Was the request made as soon as possible after identifying the need (based on date of diagnosis, receipt of housing assignment, change in status, etc.)?

Feasibility & Availability

  • Is space available that meets the student’s needs?
  • Is the student in special interest housing? If so, can the requested configuration be met within that area?
  • Can space be adapted to provide the requested configuration without creating a safety hazard (electrical load, emergency egress, etc.)?
  • Are there other effective methods or housing configurations that would achieve similar benefits as the requested configuration?
  • How does meeting this request impact housing commitments to other students?
  • Is the cost of meeting the request prohibitive?
