Housing accommodations can include but are not limited to medical singles, proximity to kitchen and/or bathroom, and first floor living or other housing configuration. If you believe you qualify for a housing accommodation based on your documented disability, please contact your medical provider or mental health professional to discuss your needed accommodations.
Download the “Third party Professional Form” from the Juniata College Student Accessibility Services website and present this required documentation to your physician or mental health professional, so they may complete it. Once completed, you may upload the completed documentation along with your completed request form on the website.Download Form Submit Form
Once the Director of Student Accessibility Services (SAS) receives your application and documentation, they have 14 days to review. After the documentation is reviewed, the Director will contact you about scheduling a consultation to discuss the request and to answer any further questions that the Director may have about your documentation or accommodations needed.
If the Director is prepared to approve the request after the consultation, they must confer with Residential Life for their input and approval. Upon approval, the student will be sent an approval notification from SAS.
The particular room assignment is decided upon by the Housing Committee including members of Residential Life, Counseling, Health and Wellness, and the SAS Director who make a determination of what room options may best fit the student’s disability related accommodation. Residential Life then sends the student their housing assignment based on that information.
Finally, Students with a housing accommodation must request a renewal of their housing accommodation within the deadlines set for the following academic year housing room draw and selection process. This request process and form will be made public and available every spring to current students with housing accommodations..
Additional Information on Medical Singles:
If you are approved for a medical single, you will be receiving a single room for no additional cost. Preferences for particular residential halls is not considered unless it relates to the approved accommodation.
