Adaptive Housing

Room Selection 2017

The deadline for students to seek adaptive housing approval for room selection is Friday, March 3, 2017.

Residence Life seeks to provide adaptive housing accommodations for students with documented needs.  Requests for adaptive accommodations can be made based on gender identity, religious need or recovery from substance abuse and will be considered on a case-by-case basis according to the processes outlined below.  Students wishing to request adaptive housing should begin by contacting Residence Life at living@wm.edu.

General Information

Students approved for adaptive housing must also pay the $200 non-refundable Room Reservation Deposit before Friday, February 17, 2017.  Students approved will be guaranteed a space in the residence halls for the next academic year. This approval must be renewed each year. Requests must be completed by March 3, 2017 to be protected in the room selection process.

  • Those students with an approved for priority housing selection, will select their rooms on March 29-31, 2017.
  • Eligible students will be called to schedule an appointment with Katrina J. Pawvluk (221-3174) in the Residence Life Office during that time. (Seniors will choose first, followed by juniors and sophomores.)
Adaptive Housing Requests

Adaptive housing requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis according to the individual student and their need.

A meeting with a staff member in Residence Life is required for students seeking Adaptive Housing.  A written statement outlining the nature of the adaptive housing request may be required following a meeting.  Additional supporting documentation may be requested.

An adaptive room accommodation is not automatically transferable from one academic year to the next and a new request and meeting is necessary each year. The university reserves the right to make final decisions regarding all adaptive rooming requests.
