Housing applications must be completed online, making it easier for groups of students to sign up together, and for students currently residing off-campus to participate. Our room selection flowchart, under the "Rising Second-Year" and "Rising Upper-Class Student" sections, will help guide you through the process and determine what option is right for you.

If you have any questions, contact University Housing at 216.368.3780, by email at or visit our Office in 24 Thwing Center. We will keep this site up to date with the latest information as it becomes available.

Medical Accommodation 

Students with disabilities may be eligible for housing accommodations that meet their unique needs outside the classroom. Medical accommodations are approved by the Office of Disability Resources.

Documentation is required to explain the diagnosis, history, treatment protocol and need for a specific accommodation based on the disability. Housing accommodations are determined individually based on the documentation provided. If you have a current accommodation and wish to discuss your housing options for next year, please contact the Office of Disability Resources prior to spring break.

If you feel you need a specific medical accommodation, please review the information from the Office of Disability Resources about obtaining approval for medical accommodation.
