In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, Americans with Disabilities Act as Amended (ADAA) of 2008, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and the Fair Housing Act (FHA), Elms College makes every effort to provide reasonable accommodations to students with documented disabilities who meet the College’s eligibility and verification requirements. All accommodations for students with disabilities are handled via the office of Student Accommodations and Support Services (SASS), a division of the Center for Student Success (CSS).

The housing accommodation process represents a collaborative effort between Residence Life and SASS. Students requesting housing accommodations are required to complete the SASS accommodation request process, which is outlined on the SASS web page.

Housing accommodations for a new academic year (Fall/Spring) should be submitted to SASS by the first week in May. Housing accommodations are not guaranteed and are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, therefore, SASS may request additional information from the student based on their request in order to provide an appropriate accommodation determination.
