Housing Accommodation Requests for Students with Disabilities
UTC Housing is excited to assist you in finding housing accommodations to meet your disability needs. Please keep in mind that you must be admitted to the university before you can apply for housing. Once you have been accepted to UTC through our Admission office you will receive a utcid and a password. Your utcid and password are required to complete the housing application process online. The application process can be completed in a few easy steps:
1) Visit our website, housing.utc.edu, and under the tab labeled “Online Services” click on “Manage My Housing”. You will be redirected to a log-in screen. Please enter your utcid and password into the login screen and click “continue”. Successful completion of this task will result in a screen that has options for you to choose on the left side.
2) Click on the option labeled “Application” > “Apply for Housing” > then complete online application. It is important to remember that some features have been deactivated due to the self-selection process which now gives the student the authority to search and select their own preferences. Once you have completed the application, click next to exit, and you will be redirected back to the option screen.
3) Click on the option labeled “Payments” > “Make Payments” > then proceed to the boxes at the bottom of the page. Click on the drop down arrow, and enter the appropriate fee into the box. Pay the $25 application fee and $225 reservation fee (These are two separate payments that are required for all new students).
UTC Housing will consider requests for reasonable housing accommodations by students who have a qualified disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Please contact the Office of Students with Disabilities (OSD) to request an evaluation for ADA accommodations at (423) 425-4006 (V/TTY).
It is the sole responsibility of the student to obtain and provide sufficient medical documentation supporting the need for an accommodation. Each request is considered independently and the OSD decision to make an accommodation will be based on the specific facts and circumstances as provided by the student, student’s doctor and/or other qualified individuals. Once you have spoken with the OSD office, all supporting documentation should be provided to:
Office for Students with Disabilities
(423) 425-4006 (V/TTY)
Once the OSD review is complete, the offices will meet together with the student to identify a reasonable accommodation.
