Housing Accommodations

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 therapy 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 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 implantation 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 with the DSS office by completing the intake appointment and submitted the necessary documentation paperwork.
