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 sign a housing contract. This approval must be renewed each year. Requests must be completed by March 1, 2019 for returners and May 31, 2019 for Freshman and New Transfers.

  • Those students with an approval for priority housing selection will select their rooms March 18-22, 2019
  • Eligible students will be contacted to schedule an appointment with Residence Life during that time period. 
  • Freshman or New Transfers will be assigned based on their Adaptive Housing status.
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.
