Accommodations for Students Medical Physical Conditions

University Apartments

 

This page addresses accommodations for students that will or currently reside in University Apartments.

Definition

Conditions that may qualify for accommodations include: disabilities, chronic medical conditions, or psychological conditions that inhibit a student's ability to live in certain residence halls. Documentation must be submitted for a student if living in any of our housing facilities would cause challenges for the student due to their condition.

Housing works with students who meet the following criteria:

  • The student has documented disability, chronic medical condition, or psychological condition. 

A licensed medical or psychological professional must verify the student’s condition. (May not be a family friend or relative of the student.)

Process

Student should download and provide Verification of Medical/Physical Condition information sheet to their physician.

Physician or student should mail documentation specified in Verification of Medical/Physical Condition information sheet to the attention of the Director of Housing at UNA Box 5037; Florence, AL 35632.

Documentation will be reviewed by Director of Housing within 2-3 weeks of receipt and the Director will be in contact.

  • All information will be reviewed by staff from the University of North Alabama Health Services. Staff from Disability Support Services may be consulted.
  • Documentation will be kept confidential and shared with other university staff on a need to know basis only

Timeline - Receipt of documentation within a reasonable timeframe of hall opening should be strictly adhered to. These timeframes are:

  • Summer Term I – April 1
  • Summer Term II – May 1

Failure to meet the timeframes noted above significantly decreases our chances of being able to provide accommodation
