Getting Started - Processes: Other Housing Accommodations

Accessible Living

The University of Arizona (UA) is committed to ensuring that our housing facilities, programs and services are accessible to all students. Acommodations include, but are not limited to:

  • ADA accessible rooms or bathrooms: includes accessible toilet, sink, and roll-in shower equipped with an unpadded, fold-down bench
  • Fire strobe equipped rooms
  • Attached/suite bathrooms for close bathroom proximity or increased privacy
  • Single rooms
  • Private bathroom
  • Remote automatic door openers

How to Request Accommodations in the Residence Halls:

After speaking with an Access Consultant at DRC to determine an appropriate accommodation, DRC will work with Housing & Residential Life to assign you to a space on campus that is most accessible. It is not necessary to provide requests or medical documentation to Housing & Residential Life.

With questions about disability-related accommodations and access on campus, please email DRC at drc-info@email.arizona.edu, or call (520) 621-3268.

Open Housing

Open Housing is intended to create a comfortable living environment for transgender and gender non-conforming residents as well as any student who wants to live with someone of a different gender.
