As a student with a current housing accommodation from Disability Support Services, you have an opportunity to apply for housing early in our annual housing assignment process to ensure we can assign you to a room that meets your accommodation. Earlier today, you received an email about Room Renewal – an option that allows you to keep your current room for next year. **Please go back and read the previous email to understand the eligibility requirements for Room Renewal before continuing on with this email.
If you are satisfied with your current room and if you are eligible to remain in your room next year, we encourage you to participate in the Room Renewal process since your current room meets your accommodation, and Room Renewal guarantees your housing assignment in the room you are currently living in for next year.
That being said, we know many of you will not be eligible for Room Renewal, have received recently-updated housing accommodations, or may want to try living in a different room that still meets your housing accommodation. That’s okay! You have additional options to pursue.
The housing application period for students with DSS Housing Accommodations begins tomorrow Tuesday, Feb. 15 at 10 am EST and ends Thursday, Feb. 24 at 10 am EST.
This period’s start and end is identical to the Room Renewal period. This is intentional, to emphasize that many of you have both options - Room Renewal and the regular application for students with DSS housing accomodations - and we hope that you evaluate both options to help you decide what’s best for you.
We’ll send a reminder tomorrow morning when these two options open!
