On-Campus Housing Accommodations

On-Campus Housing Accommodations at the Kent Campus

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works with the Department of Residence Services to provide housing accommodations for students with disabilities. Students requesting disability-related housing accommodations must register with SAS and renew their request for housing accommodations with SAS each academic year. Eligibility for disability-related housing accommodations is determined on a case-by-case basis. For information on SAS registration procedures and documentation guidelines, please visit the Requesting Accommodations section of our website.

There are a variety of accessible housing options in the residence halls, including single rooms, air-conditioning, roll-in showers, and various bathroom configurations. For more information about Kent State University's residence halls, please visit the Residence Halls webpage.

Additional information regarding your responsibilities in requesting on-campus housing accommodations are listed below, but feel free to contact us at 330-672-3391 (VP 330-968-0490) or sas@kent.edu with questions.

New Students to On-Campus Housing

If you are a new student eligible to live on-campus and require disability-related housing accommodations, we strongly encourage you to complete your registration with SAS prior to the month of June. Housing placements for new students typically begin during the month of July.

You'll also need to complete all requirements of Residence Services such as, reviewing the housing contract and completing your housing application. You can learn more about these requirements on the Future Residents webpage, or by contacting Residence Services at 330-672-7000.

Returning Students to On-Campus Housing

If you are a returning student eligible to live on-campus and have used disability-related housing accommodations previously, you must contact SAS to renew your accommodations each academic year. We recommend renewing your housing accommodations with SAS either prior to or at the time of contract renewal. Please contact SAS at 330-672-3391 (VP 330-968-0490) to request an appointment to renew your housing accommodations. 

You can learn more about your requirements as a returning student to on-campus housing on the Current Residents webpage, or by contacting Residence Services at 330-672-7000.
