Methodist University is committed to providing individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to use and enjoy university housing. Individuals needing Housing accommodations will work with both Student Access & Accommodation Services (SAAS) and Housing & Residence Life. SAS’s role is to verify documentation of the need for housing accommodations and to send verification to Housing & Residence Life, who handles the remainder of the process.

How to Register for Housing Accommodations

The first step to register with MU’s Student Access & Accommodation Services is to complete the online Student Information Form.

The second step is to submit documentation of the disability. Documentation can be submitted to our office via email to We can accept a dated letter from a professional, a copy of evaluation, or a copy of the 504/IEP (if you had one) that must state the diagnosis. 

The following information is required on your documentation:

  • Name and date of birth.
  • A diagnostic statement identifying the disability or condition.
  • The licensed professional’s signature.

The third step is to send an email with your specific housing request to SAAS at

  • In this email, you must identify the type of accommodations you will need (i.e., shaker bed, first floor room, ADA room, private bed/bathroom, special height desk/bed, etc.).

Once we have received your application, documentation, and specific housing needs, we will notify Housing & Residence Life of your accommodation. They will then place you wherever there is availability on campus that meets those needs.
