Housing and Meal Plan Accommodations

Housing and Meal Plan Accommodations

In an effort to effectively respond to a student’s request for a housing or meal plan modification or accommodation due to medical conditions or disabilities, the University has created the Housing and Meal Plan Accommodations Committee.  The committee is made up of a group of CCU professionals representing Accessibility and Disability Services, Student Health Services, Counseling Services, University Housing, and Aramark, CCU’s food service provider.

In order to fully evaluate your request, the Housing and Meal Plan Accommodations Committee will need documentation of your medical condition or disability.  Documentation should be current and comprehensive in light of the request and consist of an evaluation by a qualified professional that describes the current functional impact of the medical condition or disability as it relates to the housing or meal plan modification or accommodation requested.

Documentation provided will be used by the Committee to evaluate your request.  The Committee will generate a list of potential reasonable modifications or accommodations based on:

  • Information and recommendation provided by the diagnosing professional
  • Potential effectiveness
  • Maximum level of integration

CCU reserves the right to request additional documentation if the information submitted appears to be outdated, inadequate in scope or content, does not address the student’s current level of functioning or substantiate the need for modifications or accommodations. Please note, primary diagnoses of ADHD, allergies, or general anxiety are not typically approved for housing exemptions, modifications, or accommodations. Food allergies will be considered for meal plan modifications.

Students will be notified via Coastal email of the Committee’s decision. Questions about the Housing and Meal Plan Accommodation process may be directed to the Housing and Meal Plan Accommodations Committee at wwoodsby@coastal.edu or by contacting the Office of Accessibility and Disability Services at (843) 349-2341.
