Applying for special on-campus housing accommodations based on medical need:

In compliance with Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Minnesota State University, Mankato students with documented disabilities may request special housing accommodations. These requests will be evaluated within the context of current housing policies, students' needs, and available facilities.

In order for such housing accommodation requests to be considered, students must first be registered with the Office of Accessibility Resources. To register with OAR, submit your own brief written explanation of your particular disability and why it requires some form of specialized housing consideration to the MSU Office of Accessibility Resources, 132 Memorial Library, Mankato, MN 56001. The Accessibility Resources staff will then instruct you on the documentation process and determine what accommodations you are eligible to receive. For full consideration, requests for special accommodations based on medical need must be received by:

  • May 15 for housing beginning Fall Semester
  • December 1 for housing beginning Spring Semester
  • April 1 for Summer Session housing
