Reasonable Residential Accommodation Request

Sweet Briar College (“SBC” or the “College”) recognizes the importance of providing reasonable accommodation in its housing policies and practices where necessary for students with disabilities to use and enjoy College housing. A reasonable accommodation is an exception to the usual rules or policies that a resident with a disability may need to have an equal opportunity to use and enjoy College housing.

In circumstances where either your disability and/or requested accommodation is not obvious, you must provide a verification from a reliable third party (e.g., a physician or other medical professional) establishing that you have a disability and that the accommodation is necessary to provide you an equal opportunity to use and enjoy College housing. Requests cannot be considered until this verification form is received directly from your treating professional.

  • “Obvious” disabilities may include, but are not limited to, use of a wheelchair or other mobility device, blindness or other physical disability.
  • “Not Obvious” disabilities may include, but are not limited to, mental or emotional disabilities, allergies and other medical conditions.

For new students, please complete this form no fewer than 60 days before you intend to move into College housing. For returning students, please complete this form no fewer than 60 days before spring housing selection.

Contact Beth Daniel Lindsay, director of academic advising and accessibility services coordinator, or Vic Lindsay, director of student life, if you have questions about this process.
