Housing and Meal Plans
Housing Accommodation Requests
Certain medical conditions or disabilities may require an accommodation for Campus Housing.
All housing accommodations and related placement will be determined in collaboration between the DRC and Campus Housing. Rates for accommodated on-campus housing will be determined based on the most prevalent room type in the student’s assigned building, in order to ensure that students requiring housing accommodation are not charged higher rates based on a disability related need for a specific room type. Accommodated housing placement is based on student need, but will not always be amenable to student preference.
Examples of disability-related requests include:
- A residence hall with a kitchen
- Permission to live with an assistance animal
- Assignment to a single room.
Meal Plan Accommodation Requests
UIC's meal plan contract does not permit releases based on religious dictates, personal food choice or preferences (e.g., vegetarianism), or other non-medically-based, dietary requirements. Additional information on a variety of special diets, as well as nutrition and health information, can be found on Dining Services website. You can also contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
If a request for a meal plan accommodation based on a student's disability is received, the University’s dietician will be consulted and recommend a final decision.
