Once your accommodation request is received by the DRC, you will be contacted by DRC staff. It is not necessary to provide requests or medical documentation to Residence Life.

Resources for Transgender, Genderqueer, and Gender Variant Students
Residence Life is committed to supporting the self-identity of every student. If you identify as transgender, gender variant or other gendered and would like to talk about your housing options, please contact one of the staff below. We are very interested in discussing any questions you may have about on-campus housing, and a placement that is right for you. Please note that it is important to discuss your housing options as soon as possible, while the widest range of options is still available.
For students who have already completed a housing application and indicated their gender as "Transgender/Other", you will be contacted directly by Residence Life's Coordinator of Social Justice Education to discuss placement in the UA residence hall that is right for you.
We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Arizona!
If you have any questions, please contact:
