Accessibility and Accommodations

We consider the residential experience to be an essential part of the student learning experience. Consequently, the staff of the Student Accessibility Center strive to make any accommodations necessary for you to enjoy the on-campus residential experience.

If you have a medical or special need, a documented disability or other circumstance(s) that could impact your residential experience, please let us know before classes begin. You may request accommodations throughout the academic year, if needed.

To make your needs known:

  • Complete the appropriate section of your housing application.

  • Contact the Student Accessibility Center by phone at 419-289-5904 or via Ohio Relay Dial 711 or email Silvia Henriss at

Depending on the nature of your disability, you may be required to provide third-party verification documentation. Examples of this type of documentation include:

  • Health care provider letter describing the diagnosis and the major life activities that are affected as a result of the disability.

  • Disability Verification Form completed by a health care (including mental health care) professional; the form is available on the AU website or by contacting the Student Accessibility Center.

Once we have received and reviewed your documentation, we will schedule a meeting with you to determine accommodations. In-person, face-to-face meetings typically take two hours. Phone or Zoom intake meetings are also available and typically last one hour.

For more information, see the detailed information on requesting accommodations or visit the Student Accessibility Center.

So, to live harmoniously with your roommate, review and keep in mind the following tips.
