University Housing Accommodation

University housing accommodations are processed through the Office of Disability Services (ODS) at Western Oregon University (WOU). In order to request disability accommodations for University Housing, register with ODS and provide supporting documentation.

Housing accommodations are based on the disability-related need and room availability, accommodations are not for a specific residence hall. Placement is dependent upon availability of rooms that meet your specific need, in addition to your University housing application date.
