You may not know all of the academic or residence life accommodations you will need until you have moved in, attended classes, and had time to get used to your new school setting. In addition, some of your needs may change with time. In either case, open communication with the Office of Disability Services and Office of Residence Life can make it easier for you to adjust your accommodations to meet your changing needs.
Here are some possible changes you may need to address:
- Different classrooms with different amounts of ambient noise
- More difficult, dense coursework
- Seminar or discussion-based courses
- New roommates
- New dorm rooms
- Quiet study space
- Land-line or video relay service if your dorm room does not get good cell service
Remember to follow-up on your requests by checking in with the Office of Disability Services and Office of Residence Life. Friendly, but firm, reminders will help you get the accommodations you need.
