Accommodation Requests

This page addresses accommodations for students that will reside or currently reside in single-student housing. Requests related to the information on this page should be made once a student has a housing contract for the term during which an accommodation is needed. For accommodations related to Graduate and Family Housing please contact our Graduate and Family Housing Administrative staff at 352-392-2161.

Inclusive Housing Options for Diverse Populations

Housing Option: In support of all students and consistent with the UF Non-Discrimination Policy, the Department of Housing and Residence Education is offering Open Housing as an assignment option for a limited number of students. For more information, contact Vern Rogers at vernr@housing.ufl.edu.

Medical & Disability Accommodations

A number of housing units are designed to be accessible and accommodate students with disabilities.  Students who wish to request special housing consideration, based on a disability, must contact the Disability Resource Center in the Dean of Students Office.  Specific medical documentation will be required from your physician to support the request.  For additional information on housing accommodations, please contact the Disability Resource Center (DRC) at DRCHousingAR@dso.ufl.edu.

The DRC will provide the Department of Housing and Residence Education with the recommended accommodations. After receiving this information, our staff will confirm that a housing agreement has been completed and either assign the student or reach out to the student with any questions. Students with medical accommodations will be assigned by a staff member and will not be able to select a room through the standard room selection process.
