Requests for Special Medical Accommodations

Housing and Residential Communities is able to consider requests for special accommodation in housing based on medical need, as long as they are submitted by the deadline and accompanied by documentation from the student's physician. The deadline for the spring semester is December 1; the deadlines for the fall semester are February 1 for returning students and March 1 for incoming freshmen.

In order to be considered, a medical request should be submitted to Kimberly Sterritt, Associate Director of Housing Administration, by fax at 205-348-7135 or by mail at Box 870399, Tuscaloosa, AL 35487. Requests should include documentation of medical condition and specific request for housing to meet that medical need. Requests will be considered by the Medical Review Committee and students notified of the committee's decision shortly after the deadline.

Please note, special accommodation in housing is not made for learning disabilities, ADD, or ADHD.
