We welcome and encourage students with disabilities to live in university housing. We work to provide accessible facilities to the greatest degree possible.
If you have a disability, medical need or other situation, we work with Health Services, Counseling and Consultation Services and the Disability Resource Center to determine appropriate accommodations.
To provide information to offer guidance and direction to emergency responders dispatched by the City of DeKalb Police Department, please complete the Premise Alert Program form.
If you have specific questions about our buildings and rooms, contact the assistant director of residential facilities at 815-753-7407. If you need temporary assistance due to an injury, please report it as soon as possible.
Contact the most appropriate department below to begin your accommodation request.
If you would like to request an emotional support animal as an accommodation, contact the Disability Resource Center. You'll go through the accommodation process prior to bringing your animal to campus.
Students with trained Service Animals are encouraged to contact the Disability Resource Center in advance of arriving on campus. This helps with notifying staff of the presence of an animal and to ensure the housing assignment provided to you meets the needs of the student and the animal.
Visit the campus map to see the location of accessible entrances, parking, automatic door openers and elevators at NIU.
