Disability Services partners with the Office of Housing and Residence Life to ensure that students with disabilities receive proper accommodations in Ball State housing. To ensure that students are considered for possible housing accommodations for the coming year, students should make any housing-related request to Disability Services by May 1. This request should include a written statement from the student describing the request and medical documentation from an appropriately licensed professional who has recently seen and treated the student. This medical documentation needs to be current and provide information about the nature of the student’s disability and describe specifically why the housing accommodation is a necessity and not just a preference. Requests received after May 1 will be considered if space is available.
