At this time, Housing is not offering single spaces in our freshman residence halls, and all apartments have shared common areas and bathrooms. If a student has a medical need for a single space, private bathroom, or other space accommodation, they must make an accommodation request. This process is started by the student submitting the accommodation request and working with the Disability Support Team/ADA coordinator. After the specific accommodation need has been identified and approved, Housing will make accommodations to housing assignments based on spaces available. Students are encouraged to submit their request along the same timeline as their housing application for the best space accommodation availability.
Emotional Support Animals
Pets are prohibited within Housing spaces with the exception of fish or other fully underwater aquatic animals contained in a tank with a capacity of 10 gallons or less. This includes animals visiting with friends or family.
If a student has a medical need for an Emotional Support Animal, students must go through the accommodations process. It is important to know that a doctor note alone is not approval to have an ESA on campus, and all requests for an ESA must be approved in writing through the ADA coordinator and director of Housing and Residential Life before the animal enters University residential spaces.

Dietary/Meal Plan Accommodations
All first-year students and students in residence halls are required to have a meal plan. There are multiple options for meal plans that offer a combination of block meals and points for varied levels of flexibility. Within the dining halls at Marletto’s and Crossroads, there are multiple options for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and Halal food. If you believe you are not able to use the meal plan and need to have a meal plan exemption, please contact email@example.com to explain your concern. The Housing team will respond to your concerns and offer potential solutions, such as reviewing food options, meeting with the Dining manager, meeting with the Dining dietician, or submitting an accommodations request.
Webster Housing wants to make sure all students feel safe and welcome in their living space. Webster’s Housing options are all suite style or apartments, meaning smaller pods of bedrooms that share a bathroom instead of a common bathroom shared by the entire floor. Each suite or apartment assigned by Housing is assigned co-ed by floor, meaning individual suites are assigned by the gender students list on the housing application, but the suite next door may be a suite of a different gender.
Webster Housing also offers an inclusive housing option. This option offers an inviting, welcoming space for students who are transgender, gender non-binary, gender non-conforming, LGBTQ+, or who have other cultural or identity considerations related to housing. This option allows students to be assigned to inclusive housing suites where students may request a roommate without regard to gender identity or physical sex, or may be placed with another student looking for a roommate also interested in inclusive housing. Students interested in inclusive housing should contact Webster Housing at firstname.lastname@example.org to start that process.
Returning students going through Returner Self Assignment will receive additional information on mixed-gender spaces.
