Request for Disability Accommodation
UND Housing provides reasonable accommodations to residents with disabilities who have a verifiable need for the accommodation. The purpose of an accommodation is to either lesson or eliminate the adverse affects of the disability. A reasonable accommodation does not put an undue burden on either party.
UND Housing may or may not provide adjustments to housing policies due to a medical condition that does not rise to the level of disability but does cause daily discomfort.
Verification of the need for the accommodation or adjustment due to medical condition requires clinical support provided by an appropriate professional.
Please complete this form and return it to:
UND Housing Office
525 Stanford Road STOP 9029
Grand Forks, ND 58202-9029

Apartment Assignment Process
All applicants are placed on a waiting list in the order the completed application and the $35 non-refundable (U.S. Funds) application fee are received. A separate waiting list is maintained for each below:
1) three bedroom family housing
2) one or two bedroom family housing
3) one, two or three bedroom single student apartment housing.
We start trying to match you to an apartment about 60 days prior to your requested move-in date. If one of your apartment choices matches an apartment that is available, you will receive an apartment assignment letter. If no match is found, then you are bypassed at this time (maintaining your original priority number on the waiting list) and the next applicant is considered for assignment. This process is followed until all available apartments have been assigned. You will remain on the waiting list until you receive an assignment or you cancel your application. Assignment letters are emailed to your UND email address and your preferred email address listed in Campus Connection. Please be sure to keep this information up to date.
