SEAS does not approve Off-Campus appeals/permission.
Off-Campus Requests and Appeals are a SEPARATE process through the Office of Residential Life.
If you have been denied permission for Off-Campus housing through the Residential Life process, and you have a medical or disability based need, the next step is to register with SEAS and request on-campus housing accommodations.
Note: July 5th is the deadline for priority consideration for housing accommodations. We will still accept requests after the deadline and work with Res Life at the end of the Summer to place with the best of our abilities for those who are approved for accommodations.
On-campus accommodations can meet most medical and disability related needs.
All components (documentation and forms) of your request must be completed and submitted to our office before the July 5th deadline.
Any requests or components submitted after the deadline will be processed in the order it was received.
Housing Accommodation Request Priority Deadline: JULY 5th
All documentation and request forms are to be submitted by July 5th.
The process for summer assignment housing requests:
- Once all forms and documentation is submitted, it will be reviewed for approval.
- Once reviewed, students will be notified of approved accommodations.
- Housing assignments will take place in late July and August, this notification will come from Residential Life.
