If a Monmouth University student should need University housing accommodations, he/she must request them through the Department of Disability Services for Students (DDS). The University requires documentation of a disability before a housing accommodation request can be considered. Upon receipt of documentation, the DDS will let the Office of Residential Life know that they have documentation on file that substantiates the need for the request to be considered. At no time is a housing assignment guaranteed based on a disability. Students should be alerted to the deadlines for special housing requests, which are announced by Residential Life each spring prior to the housing process.
Any student requesting to have his/her housing accommodation considered must submit the request and all documentation to DDS no later than May 1 for the Fall semester and December 1 for the Spring semester. Late requests and documentation will result in the student being placed on a wait list. Even if a student has received housing accommodations in the past, he/she would need to make the request through the DDS each housing cycle.
