Disability-related housing accommodations provide access for students in their on-campus residential experience. Students requesting housing accommodations will need to meet with Disability Support Services and provide documentation supporting their request and disability-related needs. Please see Documentation Guidelines to ensure you have proper documentation for your request.
Accommodations for housing are approved on a case by case basis and are dependent on the nature of the disability and/or health condition and the reasonability of the request. Disability Support Services works in partnership with Office of Housing Services and Residence Life to provide accommodations that meet individual student needs.
Once housing accommodations are approved, Disability Support Services requests that the Office of Housing Services and Residence Life place the student in a room that reasonably fulfills the accommodation needs of that student. We cannot guarantee specific placement in a particular residence hall building or room as an accommodation.
Single room requests are not granted solely based on a need for quiet study space. Residence halls are designed as community living spaces. Students who need quiet environments for study should seek other places on campus that are designated as quiet study areas.
Students who are new to Seattle Pacific University and applying for housing accommodation should contact Disability Support Services immediately upon submitting their housing application no later than June 1. The student will need to meet with Disability Support Services staff and provide documentation of their disability and accommodations. (See Documentation Guidelines to ensure you have proper documentation for your request.) You can reach DSS at 206-281-2272 or firstname.lastname@example.org schedule an appointment.
Please note: information provided to Disability Support Services will only be shared with other relevant staff in a discreet and confidential manner and will be used only as permitted under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This information will have no bearing on students' general eligibility for housing.
