Housing Accommodations

We work with Disability and Accessibility Resources to ensure that you receive the housing accommodations you need.

Housing Accommodation Request

Some people need specific types of housing or specific amenities in their housing because of a personal condition. If you have a condition (including allergies) that substantially limits major life activity, you may be eligible for specific housing accommodations. To inquire and/or request housing accommodations, you must contact Disability and Accessibility Resources (DAR). DAR works with you to understand your needs, compile any necessary documentation, and make accommodation determinations.  These determinations are given to Housing, and we identify housing that meets the accommodations.

If you are concerned about the housing structure and do not have a condition that limits major life activities, please contact housing@hope.edu.

For incoming students, it is helpful to complete this process before the online housing applications are due (especially if your accommodation will require modifications of your living environment).

For returning students, in order to guarantee an approved accommodations, the above processes must be completed for cottage and apartments by February 1, 2022 (please note that the deadline has passed) and for residential halls by March 1, 2022. Any accommodations approved after these dates will be fulfilled as space becomes available.

Please be aware that we cannot guarantee assigment to a specific room or residence hall and accomodations are not contigent on other students.

Forms will be submitted to Disability and Accessibility Resources. Disability and Accessibility Resources will contact you with the next step.

SERVICE AND Assistance Animals

Assistance animals must be requested and approved as a reasonable accommodation through Disability and Accessibility Resources. All animals living in campus housing must be registered with Student Development prior to coming to campus. Please contact DAR to get started with this process.
