Housing Accommodations

The University of Louisville will accept and consider requests for reasonable accommodation in University housing at any time. The individual making the request for accommodation should make the request and provide appropriate supporting documentation to the Disability Resource Center before moving into Campus Housing, generally at or before the time of application for housing. However, if the request for accommodation is made after the priority deadline, the University cannot guarantee that it will be able to meet the individual’s accommodation needs during the first semester of occupancy.

The priority deadlines are:

  • Fall semester - June 1
  • Spring semester - November 1
  • Summer terms - April 1

In order to determine appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities residing within Campus Housing, it is often necessary for the Disability Resource Center to obtain information about the nature of a student’s disability, its impact, and the student’s disability-related needs within the residential environment from the student’s doctor, mental health provider, or other medical professional.  The Housing Accommodation Documentation (PDF) form may be shared with the student's provider if desired to offer guidance on the information necessary to document the need for an accommodation in Campus Housing.

To request accommodation in Campus Housing, students should submit the following form to share their needs with the Disability Resource Center, and may attach supporting documentation to that form if it is not being sent directly by the provider:

If you have questions or need assistance, please contact Kathleen Dailey at kathleen.donovandailey@louisville.edu.

Note: This procedure excludes Service and Emotional Support Animal accommodations.  For additional information about those accommodations, please see the University’s Service and Emotional Support Animal Policy.  For additional information about housing accommodations, please see the Housing Accommodation Policy.
