Housing/Meal Plan Accommodations

George Fox University is committed to making reasonable housing and meal plan accommodations for students with disabilities or medical reasons. 

A student may qualify for this accommodation if...
...the student has a documented disability (medical, mental health, or other concern) affecting housing placement or meal plan. For more information about service animals and emotional support animals in campus housing, see the ESA/SA webpage.

Procedure for Requesting a Housing Accommodation

Step 1: Register in the Accommodation Information Management (AIM) system. Go to
www.georgefox.edu/das/aim, click the "Housing Application" button, and complete the application.

Step 2 (Housing/Meal Plan): Please upload a 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.

Step 2 (ESA/SA): Students requesting a service animal (SA) or emotional support animal (ESA) in campus housing should provide the documentation listed below:

Note: Students who are requesting both a Housing/Meal Plan accommodation AND ESA/SA accommodation, should complete both sets of documentation to demonstrate need. (example: reduced meal plan and ESA request; single room and SA, etc) 

Step 3: Disability and Accessibility Services will contact you if more information is needed or to notify you that your request has been approved.

Step 4: Upon approval of your request by Disability and Accessibility Services, communicate with the Office of University Housing (housing@georgefox.edu) to discuss specific accommodation arrangements.
