Webinar: Access Considerations in On-Campus Housing

When:  Mar 7, 2019 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM (ET)

Presented by: Amanda Kraus, Ph.D., University of Arizona and Darshan Shah, M.A., Fairleigh Dickinson University

There are many ways in which institutional policies and requirements for on-campus living and housing facilities themselves may present barriers for students. From the availability of accessible or flexible spaces in residence halls, to consideration of when single room access is an appropriate accommodation, ensuring that students have equitable access requires collaboration and an understanding of the student’s request and the options available. By presenting best practices and specific examples, this webinar will help frame the commitment to ensuring disability access in on-campus housing. Because housing options, policies, and requirements differ greatly from campus to campus, the presenters will specifically address participant questions and the issues they are confronting. This webinar will not specifically address animals/ESAs in residence halls.
