Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

Eligibility for reasonable housing accommodations

If you are seeking housing accommodations or adjustments, please have a qualified provider complete the Reasonable Accommodation Form  (PDF). 

This information will be used to determine eligibility for reasonable housing accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. 

Please ensure your provider specifically addresses the need for housing accommodation(s) and why it is essential that the accommodation be granted as it pertains to housing. Please attach additional information or documentation to this form as needed. 

After this is submitted, the Accessibility Committee comprised of a representative of the Office of Student Accessibility Services (OSAS), Counseling and Student Development, Health Services, and Housing are collectively responsible for reviewing and making determinations on your request. The Committee meets monthly to review submissions.

Once a determination has been made, you will be notified via your UMassD email. Accommodations are determined case-by-case.

ADA accommodations are approved for one academic year at a time. This means a new form must be completed by your provider and submitted yearly for consideration. 

Please submit your form via:

Location: Office of Student Accessibility Services (OSAS), Pine Dale Hall, Room 7136
Fax: 508-910-6691
