Housing Accommodations for UCCS Students

UCCS understands students with a documented disability may need reasonable accommodations for the residence hall environment. Disability Services reviews requests for Housing Accommodations on a student-by-student basis dependent upon the medical information provided in the documentation of a disability. A request for housing accommodation does not guarantee a housing assignment.
