As a student with a disability or chronic medical condition, if you feel that you need to live on campus or if you have special requirements for student housing, please review the Priority Housing Request Form to determine if you should apply.
All applications for on-campus residence must be made through UBC Student Housing and Community Services by February 15.
In order to be recommended for priority access, you must have disability-related needs or an ongoing medical condition that cannot be met in off-campus housing. The presence of a disability alone is insufficient to qualify for priority placement.
You are required to provide medical documentation indicating the presence of a disability or chronic medical condition, and how that condition necessitates on-campus housing.
Placements are typically offered in year-round housing.
Course Load Requirements
Student Housing’s credit load requirement is 9 credits per term. If you are unable to meet this for disability-related reasons, you can make a request to your Accessibility Advisor to remain eligible for student housing with a minimum of 6 on-campus credits per term.
