Disability Related Housing Accommodations

UMass Boston Housing is an inclusive community dedicated to working with students to help them succeed in their educational and social pursuits.

Students requesting disability related accommodations (room types, ESA, Service Animal) must first be confirmed for a space on-campus, prior to documentation being reviewed by the accommodation committee.

Students requesting a service animal or ESA must also submit the housing accommodation request form. All documents should be received in one email and will not be reviewed until ALL required documentation has been received.
