Housing Accommodation Requests

Becker College strives to create intentional, comfortable, and supportive living communities that create a seamless living and learning environment. We recognize that occasionally, students may need housing accommodations in order to be successful. To help make certain each student receives an appropriate housing assignment the following process has been developed to review all requests for special housing accommodations.

The Student Accommodations Committee evaluates requests made by students seeking housing accommodations. In an effort to respond to these requests as fairly and knowledgeably as possible, members of this committee will be comprised of Residence Life and Housing, Health Services, Counseling Services and Collaborative Learning Center.

Submitting a request for housing accommodations:

The student will need to complete and submit the Request for Housing Accommodations form along with supporting documentation:

The Student Accommodations Committee will review each student request including the supporting documentation provided and make a decision about the request. Once all of the information is received, the evaluation team will consider the following criteria when evaluating housing accommodation requests:

Has the student provided adequate documentation?

Does the documentation clearly articulate the need for this housing accommodation with supporting information?

  • The Committee reserves the right to ask for additional documentation if the initial documentation does not provide a clear enough explanation for the request.

Was the request made by the designated deadline?

  • All forms must be received by the designate deadline (i.e. for returning students by March 31, 2014, for new students by July 1, 2014 for fall or November 17, 2014 for spring). 
  • Any forms received after that deadline may not be considered. If approved after the deadline, it will be dependent on space availability.

The student will be notified of the Committee's decision via their Becker email account. If the decision is to grant the request, communication will include the specific housing assignment. The assignment will be determined based on student's need; please keep in mind that there is no guarantee that any student will be placed in a specific residence hall or room. If the decision is to deny the request, all attempts will be made to explain why a request was denied in order to keep the student informed.

Consideration is given based on the date all documentation is submitted and space availability.

It should be noted that simply submitting the Request for Housing Accommodations form does not guarantee the request will be granted.  Accommodations are made on a needs-based and space available basis.

Housing accommodation requests need to be submitted each year, they do not carry forward.
