DAS PROCESS: 

  • Once the student has submitted a request for a housing accommodation (Step 2 above) the student will receive an email from DAS reminding the student to complete all the steps listed above (Steps 3 through 6).
  • Once all six (6) steps for an OSU On-Campus Housing Accommodation Request have been completed, the DAS Housing Review Team will process and review the request. DAS will inform students of the outcome of their housing accommodation request(s) through e-mail.  
  • Housing accommodations are granted by DAS for an academic year (September – June of each year or the remainder of the current academic year).  

 

SUMMER HOUSING ACCOMMODATION REQUESTS: 

All students wishing to live on-campus during the summer and receive housing accommodations will need to request those accommodations separately from the regular academic year housing accommodation requests. 

If the student has not previously lived in on-campus housing with accommodations or is requesting different housing accommodations than previously approved by DAS, then all the above identified steps for requesting a housing accommodation must be followed. 

If a student is requesting the same housing accommodations that were approved for the immediate previous academic year, the student needs only to submit a Disability Accommodation Form for the summer term (Step 2).  

 

IF YOU ARE A RETURNING OSU STUDENT LIVING ON-CAMPUS: 

All students with currently approved housing accommodations through DAS will receive a reminder from UHDS regarding the housing application deadline, reminding them to request their housing accommodations for the following academic year (if they are choosing to continue to live on-campus). 

If a student is requesting the same housing accommodations that were approved for the immediate previous academic year, the student needs only to submit a Disability Accommodation Form for the summer term (Step 2).  

Continuously enrolled students who miss the established UHDS deadlines for requesting on-campus housing will lose their priority selection status. This includes returning students who are registered for services with DAS who are requesting housing accommodations for the following academic year. So, remember it’s important to get your housing and housing accommodation requests in as soon as you can.
