Are there any special considerations for athletes looking for student housing?

Again, this will vary slightly between each university, but you can expect to live with between one and three more roommates in your dorm (“dorm”). As a student-athlete, you'll likely be staying with other first-year athletes on your team. Housing Services offers students the opportunity to choose an air-conditioned room during the first-year room selection and assignment processes. Housing Services uses the following principles to determine the room allowance and the rate charged to students with disabilities who receive accommodation.

Upper-class students receiving accommodation can choose to decline the assigned accommodation room and select a different room that also satisfies the accommodation, if available, through the room selection process. Once the need is documented and approved, Housing Services will initiate a work order to install an air conditioner in the appropriate location or reassign the student to an air-conditioned room (some rooms cannot be equipped with air conditioning).
