Request for Special Housing (Medical)
If a reasonable accommodation in housing is requested based on a disability, the following must be completed:
- Documentation of Disability for Special Housing Consideration Form (completed by the medical provider/diagnostician)
- submit a Housing Application by May 1 for the fall term, or December 1 for the spring term
- provide documentation that addresses the specific needs for a
reasonable accommodation(s) in housing (this documentation must be
submitted within the established timeframe (see #2) to the Office of
- update reasonable housing accommodations on an annual basis within the established time frames designated by the University
Standards may be more stringent than usual clinical practice. Millikin University does not base eligibility on what could/might occur or often occurs with those that have been given this diagnosis. Documentation must include very specific information regarding the individual’s actual current functional limitations/restrictions. The University requests data based on evidence such as: medical evaluations, psychoeducational, neuropsychological, norm based behavioral assessments, and other evaluations/assessments that measure how the impairments interfere with the student’s functioning.
Missing information delays the eligibility decision and the delay may affect the individual’s ability to secure special housing due to availability.
