Grove City College is committed to providing equal access to College housing for individuals with documented disabilities. The Director of Disability Services works in collaboration with the Director of Residence Life to determine appropriate and reasonable accommodations.
Students who wish to request housing accommodations should refer to the Housing Accommodation Policy. Documentation of the disability as well as a formal meeting with the Disability Services Office will determine if the request is reasonable. Please note: Submission of documentation does not guarantee approval of a request. Housing accommodation include, but are not limited to:
Students may request a housing accommodation at any time, however, requests made after the deadlines below may not be able to be implemented until the next housing cycle. If an adequate room becomes available sooner, the student would be prioritized for placement in such space.
Housing Accommodation Request Deadlines (Fall 2024-Spring 2025)
*As noted above, requests received after these deadlines will still be reviewed, but, if approved, it is possible they may not be implemented until the next housing cycle. Please note, housing is assigned each spring for the following academic year.
Although it is the policy of Grove City College that animals of any kind are prohibited from any type of College housing, the College will consider requests for an emotional support animal by an individual with a significant mental health disability in accordance with the Fair Housing Act.
Emotional support animals are NOT permitted in College housing at any time without first receiving approval from the Disability Services Office. Individuals found with an unauthorized animal in College housing are subject to disciplinary sanctions.
View the Emotional Support Animal Policy and required paperwork.
Grove City College will amend the current no pet policy for the presence of a service animal as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) if a student’s disability requires such assistance while on campus and in College housing.
