Housing & Emotional Support Animal (ESA) Accommodations
In order to determine eligibility for housing accommodations, we require documentation of the student's disabling health condition as it relates to living in the residence halls. Examples of housing accommodations include but are not limited to, ADA compliant rooms, single-occupancy rooms, shared/private baths, room modifications, low allergen environments.
Housing accommodations must be reasonable and relate to the students' disability and address their functional limitations. The Access Center, Residence Life, and Housing work closely together to ensure a positive living environment for students with disabilities who live in the residence halls.
Documentation should thoroughly explain the barriers you experience with regard to living in WSU Housing and make a clear connection between these barriers and the accommodation(s) you are requesting. Please review our documentation guidelines for more information
We strongly encourage you to have your provider fill out the Housing Verification Form.
Freshmen Housing Waiver - medical reasons
Students who are interested in pursuing a waiver to the freshmen live-in rule based on their medical condition must provide documentation and a personal statement as outlined on the Housing and Residence Life website.Once there, select Freshmen Live-In Rule for pertinent information.
Non-freshmen students living in the residence halls: If you are seeking a housing waiver based on a medical condition, please complete the same forms that are found at this website.
NOTE: The process for requesting Housing/ESA Accommodations requires a separate application from academic accommodations. Submitting the incorrect application may result in delays processing your request.
