Housing & Dietary Accommodations

Any students requiring accommodations for housing or dietary needs should complete the Accommodations Request Packet and email completed packet to Academic Success and Accessibility at ASA@redlands.edu. The Accommodations Committee reviews all requests and meets monthly (August through June), generally on the last Friday of the month. Completed requests should be received no later than one week before the Accommodations Committee meetings. Incoming students (first-year or transfer) can contact Academic Success and Accessibility as soon as you deposit with the University of Redlands for the upcoming semester. You can contact our office with any questions at ASA@redlands.edu.

*Please note that a personal statement is a required part of this request packet. (See step 4 of the process on the first page of the packet.)* Please see the attached guide for personal statement recommendations.

If you are seeking dietary accommodations, a conversation or meeting with our foodservice group, Harvest Table, is also required. The contact for this is Colin Nye, Health and Wellness Manager. He can be reached by phone at 909-488-9815 or by email at colin_nye@redlands.edu.   

In addition, your housing accommodation concerns may include Emotional Support Animals (ESA). Please review the following documents about the ESA process:
