This page addresses accommodations for students who will or currently reside in on-campus housing.
Conditions that may qualify for accommodations include: disabilities, chronic medical conditions, or psychological conditions that inhibit a student's ability to live in certain residence halls. Documentation must be submitted for a student if living in any of our housing facilities would cause challenges for the student due to their condition.
Residence Life works with students who meet the following criteria:
The student has documented disability, chronic medical condition, or psychological condition.
A licensed medical or psychological professional must verify the student's condition. (The professional may not be a family friend or relative of the student.)
Student should download and provide Verification of Medical/Physical Condition information sheet to their physician.
Physician or student should mail documentation specified in Verification of Medical/Physical Condition information sheet to the attention of: Director of Residence Life, UNA Box 5057, Florence, AL 35632-0001.
Documentation will be reviewed by Director of Residence Life within 2-3 weeks of receipt, and the Director will be in contact with you via email.
All information will be reviewed by staff from the University of North Alabama Health Services. Staff from Disability Support Services may be consulted.
Documentation will be kept confidential and shared with other university staff on a need-to-know basis only.
Timeline - Receipt of documentation within a reasonable time frame of hall opening should be strictly adhered to. These time frames are:
Summer Term I - April 1

Failure to meet the time frames noted above significantly decreases our chances of being able to provide accommodation.
