Provisions for Residents with Special Needs

The Office of Residence Life & Housing seeks to ensure all residents a safe, comfortable and dignified living experience.

Medically Related Needs
Emory University is committed to making University housing accessible to all persons. To that end, we have accessible rooms for residents with disabilities.  In addition, the University has wheelchair accessible shuttles to service the campus.  Please note: Housing does not provide accommodations for Learning Disabilities. If you have a disability that may require special assignment or accommodations, you must contact and register with the Office of Disability Services (ODS). Accommodations will be approved, as appropriate,  based on receipt of documentation as outlined by ODS.

Housing accommodation assignments are made on a case-by-case basis that recognizes the variability of individual needs and preferences and the fact that appropriate accommodations may be limited in number. As for all applicants for housing, no guarantee can be made that all stated preferences can be met. For full consideration, requests should be made at the start of any application period.

The ODS office is located at 110 Administration Building. The phone number is 404.727.9877 and the TDD is 404.712.2049. Additional consultation may take place with the Emory Counseling Center and/or the Emory Student Health Center.

Students who are registered with ODS will be contacted individually via email regarding procedures for securing housing during the room selection process.

Trangender/LGBT
The Office of Residence Life & Housing seeks to accommodate residents who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender. The general policy of this office is to house individuals and assign roommates based on the resident's biological sex. Individuals who identify as transgender and prefer a special housing accommodation may request such an accommodation.

Housing accommodation assignments are made on a case-by-case basis that recognizes the variability of individual needs and preferences and the fact that appropriate accommodations may be limited in number. As for all applicants for housing, no guarantee can be made that all stated preferences can be met. For full consideration, requests should be made at the start of any application period.

Prospective or current residents who are interested in gender neutral housing are asked to contact one of the following staff members to discuss housing options available:
