This application must be fully completed and submitted with current medical documentation no later than Monday, March 22nd at 11:59 p.m. In addition, if you feel that you may have a disability you are also encouraged, but not required, to contact the Office of Disability Services (ods@princeton.edu).

Important Information

Please read the following information about the housing accommodations process before completing and submitting your application:

  • The housing accommodations process is administered jointly by Housing and the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students, in consultation with administrators and physicians in the Office of Disability Services or University Health Services review of medical documentation.
  • Students applying for housing accommodations may only have one roommate or drawmate (a student without accommodation needs of their own, who will be offered a housing assignment in an adjacent room).  The number of students requesting housing accommodations has increased dramatically over the last several years, and the system is not possible with groups larger than two.  There is no exception to this policy. For seniors with asthma and allergies, given their priority in the draw, these needs can be met through the regular room draw process and seniors should not submit an application.  We are committed to the fairness of this process and as such will not take rooms that are statistically drawn early in draw, or "prime" rooms, out of the regular room draw process. As such, three-room doubles will not be used for housing accommodations. 
  • Consistent with New Jersey state law, all dormitories are smoke free. 
  • Physical needs will receive priority attention.  Secondarily, we will do our best to accommodate some of your other preferences if possible, but if the room meets a documented medical need, it is deemed an appropriate assignment. Students are not obligated to accept a pre-draw assignment.
  • Students will be asked to identify rooms that would meet their needs.  This is simply to provide some examples that would be suitable.  It is merely used as a guideline and students should not expect to be assigned to the identified room.  Student assignments will be made with consideration of all the information provided in this process and is NOT constrained to just the specific rooms a student might suggest.
  • Please note that Rights, Rules, Responsibilities states: "Members of the University community are expected to be honest and straight-forward in their official dealings with University processes, activities, and personnel. This obligation includes...providing accurate information on official forms and documents as well as to University personnel...Deliberate violations will be considered serious offenses...” (p. 2)  Any student found to be providing inaccurate or misleading information in order to gain an advantage in on-campus housing will face University disciplinary action.
  • Rooms larger than a double will not be made available during the housing accommodations process. 
  • Please do not call the Housing Office or the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students regarding the status of an assignment.  You will be contacted by e-mail with your assignment on or around the first week of April. You will have until April 11th to accept or reject your assignment.
