Residential Accommodations

Providence College offers reasonable accommodations for the residential living needs of persons with disabilities. Students requesting a disability-related accommodation pertaining to Residential Life should complete the Accommodations Application linked in the “Request an Accommodation” section of the Accessibility Accommodations website. This application includes a request for documentation of the need for Residential Accommodations, which requires verification of the individual’s disability from a physician, psychiatrist, social worker, or other mental health professional, who is not a family member or a Providence College employee.

Important!  ACCOMMODATIONS, IF APPROVED, ARE FOR AN INDIVIDUAL ONLY.  The approved accommodations do not apply to friends or housing groups.  Students may elect to stay with a housing group and decline an accommodation, or accept an accommodation and be placed in a setting that best meets the disability-determined need.

Deadlines for Residential Life Accommodation Requests

Submit accommodation requests on time for full consideration.  It may be difficult to accommodate late requests, especially after housing assignments have been completed.
