CU Boulder Disability Services reviews requests for housing and dining accommodations for students with documented disability-related needs on an individual basis. If you feel you require a housing or dining accommodation, please submit your request as soon as you are able, ideally before you move in, so we can best meet your needs. For instructions to request a housing or dining accommodation, please visit the Disability Services Housing Accommodations page.
