HOUSING AND MEAL PLAN ACCOMMODATIONS
(based on medical or mental health need)

Housing accommodations, such as single rooms, are granted to students who provide appropriate medical documentation supporting those needs. Decisions are made through the Office of Residential Life in consultation with the Disability Services Office.  Students who receive room or meal accommodations may have additional fees added to their account related to the specific type of accommodation, including single room accommodations.

Decisions are made based on the most recent supporting documentation based on the specific recommendations of the appropriate professionals. It is also Illinois Wesleyan University's expectation that during the term of the housing contract, the student adhere to the treatment plan assisting them in their need.

Please note: A room accommodation will not be automatically granted from one academic year to the next. Students will need to supply ongoing supporting documentation stating the student's progress, ongoing diagnosis and documenting the continued need for a room accommodation.

For new students to IWU, the deadline for submitting the Verification for Housing and Meal Plan Accommodations is July 1 . For returning students, deadlines for submission of documentation and requests for room or meal plan accommodations are set by term as follows: 

  • Fall Semester:  March 1, for full consideration.  Requests received after this date will be considered but accommodations will be granted when space is available to meet the needs of the student.
  • Spring Semester: November 1, for full consideration.  Requests received after this date will be considered but accommodations will be granted when space is available to meet the needs of the student.

Documentation guidelines and the Verification of Disability for Housing and Meal Plan Accommodations form can be found on the Disability Services website.
