As a residential campus, Capital University considers residency an essential part of the educational experience for its students. Therefore, full-time undergraduate students are required to maintain residency in the University's residence halls, apartments, or houses for the duration of their enrollment, with some exceptions outlined in the Capital University Housing Policy.
Capital University recognizes the significance of providing reasonable accommodations in its housing policies and practices for students with disabilities, in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
- To receive housing accommodations, students with disabilities must register with Accessibility Services.
- Students are advised to apply for housing accommodations before the Housing Accommodation Deadlines set by Accessibility Services and Residential and Commuter Life. Accommodations approved after the deadlines may not be available until the following semester or term.
- Students who wish to request renewal of their previously approved housing accommodations, must complete an ‘Additional Accommodation Request’ on Accommodate each year prior to the housing accommodation deadline as determined by Accessibility Services and Residential and Commuter Life.
- Temporary housing accommodations may be available for students with temporary disabilities, but are subject to room availability.
