The Disability Support Services (DSS) office and DigiPen Housing, LLC work together to make sure that students with disabilities have equal access to DigiPen’s housing resources. Students who wish to request housing accommodations — such as a single use restroom, service or emotional support animal, and/or a visual alarm — should notify the DSS office and DigiPen Housing. It is the responsibility of the student with disabilities to make their housing accommodation request and complete the intake with DSS by the housing application deadline, or as soon as a need for accommodation is determined. On-campus housing is limited; requests for housing accommodations are considered on a space-available basis.
To request a housing accommodation, students must obtain and submit medical documentation regarding their disability and needs of the specific housing accommodation to the DSS office. Please see the documentation guidelines for more information.
The review of documentation and intake process to determine eligibility for housing accommodations may take up to two weeks. The failure to submit a request or to provide the appropriate supporting documentation in a timely manner may result in delayed determination of housing accommodations. DigiPen Housing may not be able to accommodate late requests due to limited availability of housing options, even if there is a recommendation from DSS. Please visit the DSS office page for more information on how to become registered by completing the intake appointment and submitting the necessary paperwork.
DigiPen Housing requires residents to submit proof of vaccinations for Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR), and the Tetanus-Diptheria booster. The Tetanus-Diptheria booster must have been administered within the last 10 years. Please scan or take a photo of your paperwork and email it to housing[at]digipen[dot]edu by August 6, 2021.
Based on American College Health Association (ACHA) guidelines, DigiPen Housing also recommends residents be vaccinated against Meningococcal Quadrivalent (A, C, Y, and W-135), Polio, Varicella, Pertussis, Human Papillomavirus Vaccine, Tuberculosis (TB), Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Influenza, and Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Vaccine-23 valent.
DigiPen requires that all students be vaccinated for COVID-19.
