ADA Accommodations within Facilities
The University of Louisville has developed a number of residential options to accommodate students with the most profound mobility impairments. Most other residents with disabilities can be accommodated in standard student housing with specific modifications made for the individual's needs. Accommodations can be made available on the 1st floor of some halls if needed by the student.
Residents with disabilities are requested to contact the Disability Resource Center, which is charged with coordinating the needs of students with disabilities between all university departments. The Disability Resource Center will make recommendations to the Housing Office on how to accommodate particular students.
Housing options include:
- Fully-accessible student rooms with accessible common bathrooms shared with other residents on the floor,
- Fully-accessible student suites with fully-equipped private bathrooms,
- Rooms with private bathrooms that may not necessarily be wheelchair-accessible,
- Rooms equipped with special devices for the hearing impaired, and
- Air-conditioned rooms.
