Accessible Housing

Overview

Federal regulations require that the office of Housing and Residential Education have on file documentation of disability and eligibility for services before any services are provided.  All communication regarding any housing accommodations will be managed through the office of Housing and Residential Education. The office contact information is 920-465-2040 and Housing@uwgb.edu. Students may request accessible housing due to a documented disability defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To make such a request, students must register with the office of Housing and Residential Education . Documentation will be reviewed by appropriate University personnel to determine whether the request will be granted. While all attempts are made to honor approved requests, they are subject to space availability. This process is in place to ensure fairness in determining approval for room assignments and room accommodations as deemed appropriate, considering individual case-by-case situations. Since this is a longer process we recommend applying 8 weeks prior to the start of the semester!
