Students with Disabilities

Disability Related Housing Accommodation

If you have disabilities that require wheelchair accessibility or other extensive living adaptations, you are strongly encouraged to visit the campus to personally view the housing facilities, and to discuss any concerns with Housing Coordinators.

Once you accept the offer of admission to UC Santa Cruz and become affiliated with one of our ten colleges, you will be sent instructions for completing the online housing application/contract process. In addition to applying for housing, you will also need to submit a Disability Resource Center Housing Accommodation Request.

Visit the Disability Resource Center web site to obtain a copy of the Accommodation Request Form, and to learn more about the programs and services available to students with disabilities.

Note: If you have a disability that requires the use of a Service or Support Animal and you plan to live in University Housing, you will need to follow the UC Santa Cruz Service Animal Policy. Service or support animals may not reside in University Housing without prior registration.

Dining Hall Accommodation
UC Santa Cruz is committed to access and inclusion in its campus programs and services. Dining Services works in close partnership with students and the Disability Resource Center (DRC) to ensure equal access to UC Santa Cruz Dining facilities. Students with medical and/or disability-related concerns regarding food and dining access are encouraged to meet with a dining hall manager. Dining hall managers are knowledgeable about the food options available and can recommend which foods will work with specific diets.

Students whose food access needs are not met by dining hall managers are encouraged to meet with Clint Jeffries, the Assistant Director of Dining Services. Clint works with students to discuss their specific needs and determine how to best address the concerns. Accommodations to dining services may require collaboration between the student, dining staff, and the Disability Resource Center and documentation from a qualified professional to be considered.
