Single Room (Single Room Rate)
Providing a single room to a student is necessary when the students disability will interfere with a roommate's ability to succeed academically (e.g. obsessive behavior, anxiety). Housing provides this accommodation through room assignments or moving the student into an empty room if it is mid-term. The student is not eligible under this accommodation for a compensated room cost, and therefore is not required to have a single room.
