How to Request Accommodations in the Residence Halls

After speaking with an Access Consultant at DRC to determine an appropriate accommodation, DRC will work with Residence Life to assign you to a space on campus that is most accessible. It is not necessary to provide requests or medical documentation to Residence Life.

With questions about disability-related accommodations and access on campus, please email DRC at drc-info@email.arizona.edu, or call (520) 621-3268.

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, genderqueer, agender, gender variant or non-binary 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. This conversation is part of a confidential process.

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 halls that is right for you.

We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Arizona!
