Disability Support Housing Accommodations

If you require any special housing accommodations because of a disability or a chronic physical condition, contact the office of Disability Support Services (DSS) at (310) 338-4216. DSS determines which requests will be accommodated through an independent evaluation process and communicates this information to the Student Housing Office.

All students requesting an accommodation will need to complete a Housing application; they may complete the application with or without the assumption that they will receive their requested accommodation. Unfortunately, due to space limitations, the Student Housing Office cannot guarantee that students who are approved for a housing accommodation by DSS will actually receive a housing assignment that meets that accommodation. The Student Housing office makes every effort possible to provide for the housing accommodation but is limited by available spaces. It is advised that students submit their documentation to DSS by January 28, 2022 for priority consideration for Housing. 

Once the application process has closed on February 24th, Student Housing will process DSS accommodations and contact the applicable students for confirmation of their intent to utilize their accommodation. Students will be able to decide to utilize their accommodation or proceed without the accommodation. Please note: accommodations do not extend to roommates and while preferences for specific buildings will be collected they cannot be guaranteed. If a student confirms their accommodation, they will likely be pulled from their roommate group as DSS accommodations are assigned before the general room selection process begins.


Study Abroad Students

If you are currently Studying Abroad or on a Leave of Absence during the Spring

If you are studying abroad or on a leave of absence during spring semester and want to live on campus for the next academic year, you should participate in the Housing Selection Process. 

If you are unsure whether you will be Studying Abroad next Fall

If you would like to live on campus in the event that your study abroad plans fall through, you should participate in the Housing Selection Process. The Student Housing Office acknowledges and supports the value of the study abroad experience and therefore will credit back the Housing Deposit for students who are confirmed to be on an LMU or affiliated study abroad program. 

If you have been admitted to the Study Abroad Program for the Fall semester

Students may apply for study abroad and fill out a housing application for the fall semester. Study Abroad students can cancel their housing application and receive a credit back of their Housing deposit when they have been accepted into the Study Abroad program. 

If you are interested in living on-campus for the spring semester when you return, you can apply for spring housing through your Housing Portal in late October. Spring housing is not guaranteed, but in previous years the Student Housing Office has been able to accommodate all interested returning Study Abroad students. We will contact you in November via an email to your LION email account so that you may fill out your online housing application, electronically acknowledge your license agreement and pay the Housing Deposit while you are abroad. We will then assign you to spring housing based on availability and the date that you submit the completed application materials.
