Housing and Dining Accommodations

Miami University recognizes students with disabilities may require a specific type of housing to fully participate in the residential component of the university experience. For these students, Miami provides disability housing accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended (ADAAA).

Specific housing accommodations due to disability, such as single room, access to kitchen or private bath, must be recommended by the treating professional or physician and approved through Student Disability Services (SDS). Housing accommodations are provided without additional cost to the student.

Miami policy requires all first and second year students to reside on campus. Exemptions to the two year residency policy due to disability, must be recommended by the treating professional or physician. Approval decisions are made by committee and if approved, SDS will inform the H.O.M.E. office of the approved exception.  

Dining Accommodations

Miami supports students with dietary restrictions and food allergies. SDS coordinates dining accommodations in collaboration with Miami Dining Services. Dining Services offers My Tray Nutritionan online tool that allows students to view nutritional information and filter menu options by dining hall and allergens. Dining Services gives ownership to students and helps to identify specific items and meals that can be produced on demand for the student. Dining Services can meet with the student to review the menu and daily offerings to help accommodate dietary needs.
