Accessibility

Mason provides an inclusive environment in which everyone is welcome. If you're a person with a disability, we can provide a home on campus that will accommodate your needs.

George Mason University has created the Special Housing Request Committee where staff from Disability Services consult with Student Health Services, Housing and Residence Life, and Counseling and Psychological Services. The Committee will discuss reasonable modifications or accommodations based on student self-report, observations and interactions during your initial Disability Services meeting, and documentation from a healthcare provider/professional. Disability Services will make a determination following the special housing committee review of student requests.

Students with specific housing accommodation requests due to a documented disability should submit their Housing Application and register with Disability Services. Students must apply for and accept their housing contract through Housing and Residence Life and contact Disability Services to request special housing accommodations. In order to assist students with special housing accommodations, a housing application must be completed and contracts must be accepted with Housing and Residence Life.

To request accommodation, submit a Special Housing Request Form  to the Housing Request Committee. We provide a selection of rooms (PDF) available for students for almost any disability. For additional information regarding the Special Housing process, visit Housing Accommodations through Disability Services.

Notification

Students will be notified in writing of Disability Services decision. If students received a permanent accommodation, they will not need to provide additional Healthcare Professional paperwork for the next academic year unless an accommodation change is needed.
