All students new to the University must deposit by May 1. New students with requests for special housing accommodations due to a disability or medical condition are strongly encouraged to contact DSS as early as possible, preferably on or before June 15. Returning students should make housing accommodation requests by March 1. For information regarding requirements for documentation of a disability related to housing contact DSS at 215-572-4033 or firstname.lastname@example.org. To get started, download the following forms and submit them as appropriate.
Although requests for accommodations may be made at any time, availability of these spaces may be limited. Medical conditions, such as allergies or asthma, can be accommodated, however, they may not rise to the level of a disabling condition.

Single room accommodations are handled in two different ways:
the necessity for equal access
preference due to a disability OR medical condition
We require documentation that justifies the medical necessity of a single room. Examples of medical necessity may include: the presence of 24/7 personal care attendant, self-catheterization, need to store a power chair, etc. While it may not be a medical necessity to a have a single room, students with disabilities may be given a single room preference due to their disability when available and will be charged the single room rate.
