Housing, Meal Plan, and Animal Accommodations

Does your disability or medical condition require a housing accommodation (i.e. single room, kitchen access, etc.) and/or a meal plan modification? Do you need an emotional support animal or service animal accommodation? George Fox University is committed to making reasonable housing and meal plan accommodations for students with disabilities or medical conditions.

Procedure for Requesting Accommodations

  1. Fill Out the Application

    Register in the Accommodation Information Management (AIM) system. Complete the Housing/Meal Plan Accommodation Application. (Despite the title, this form is also used for emotional support and service animal accommodations.)

  2. Upload Documentation

    Housing/Meal Plan Accommodation Provider Form

    If your provider prefers to write a letter, the document should include the disability/medical/mental health diagnosis and detailed accommodation recommendations. Those recommendations should focus on necessary environmental or dietary needs, not specific locations. For example, a provider might indicate you need a location where you can access a kitchen, not that you need housing in specific campus apartments. NOTE: We cannot make a determination until we have documentation from an appropriate provider.

    The Housing Application can be completed a single time by students requesting more than one type of housing or meal plan accommodation. See the categories above for the documentation needed for each type of accommodation, and submit with your application. Please note that provider documentation that is applicable to one accommodation request may not be sufficient to support a different request.

  3. Review and Decision

    Disability & Accessibility Services (DAS) will contact you if more information is needed or to notify you that your request has been approved. Please note that everyone requesting an ESA in campus housing must have an interview with DAS.
  4. Contact the Office of University Housing

    Upon approval of your request by Disability & Accessibility Services, communicate with the Office of University Housing (housing@georgefox.edu) to discuss specific accommodation arrangements.
