Dartmouth College provides support services and reasonable accommodations to students with medical and/or psychiatric disabilities who qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The Colleges strives to address functional limitations and behavioral manifestations by making reasonable accommodations for each qualifying condition. Examples are accessible rooms for mobility-impaired students and fire alarm devices for deaf students. In addition, we provide temporary assistance for short term conditions if space permits. For example, a student may need to move to a ground floor location while recuperating from knee surgery.
Individuals who require housing for medical or disability-related needs may be exempt from Room Draw and/or the regular housing process. To apply for this housing, a student must submit a Housing for Medical or Disability-Related Needs Application, Medical Care Provider Form (filled out by a physician who is not a family member) and any appropriate documentation to the Undergraduate Housing Office.

Undergraduate Housing Relocation Policy for Students with Disabilities
Dartmouth College is committed to ensuring our residential programs are readily accessible to and usable by students with disabilities. To the extent that student housing or residential programs may not be readily accessible, Dartmouth College will make reasonable efforts to enable students with disabilities to participate in and receive the benefits of Dartmouth residential programs. Those efforts may include relocation of the program, redesign of equipment, reassignment of programs or services to alternative sites, alteration of existing facilities or other reasonable methods which make the residential programs and activities accessible under the circumstances.
Individuals seeking accommodations in order to participate in residential programs are encouraged to provide as much advance notice as possible, but in any event, a minimum of six months. Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations or information on accessibility should contact Rachael Class-Giguere, the Director of Undergraduate Housing, at 603-646-3093 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
