Housing Accommodations

The 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 wheelchair accessible room, single-use bathroom, service or therapy animal, and/or a visual alarm - should notify the DSS Office and DigiPen Housing, LLC. It is the responsibility of the student with disabilities to make their housing accommodation request and complete intake with DSS at least four weeks in advance of the closing of the housing registration process, 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.

The review of documentation and intake process to determine eligibility for housing accommodations may take up to 4 weeks. The failure to submit a request or to provide the appropriate supporting documentation in a timely manner may result in a delay in implementation of housing accommodations. DigiPen Housing LLC 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 website for more information on how to become registered with the DSS Office by completing the intake appointment and submitting the necessary documentation paperwork.

DigiPen Student Housing Council

The Student Housing Council is an elected body of residents that meets regularly to discuss the concerns of current residents and community members. Those concerns are then addressed by the residential community or taken to DigiPen Housing LLC staff for further discussion. The Student Housing Council is also responsible for planning at least two events a semester that bring the residential community together.  Residents are encouraged to get involved with the Student Housing Council and attend all sponsored events. More information regarding the Student Housing Council and the election process will be provided at New Resident Orientation.
