Specialized Housing Policy for Housing Requests based on a Documented Disability

Students with documented disabilities which substantially limit their ability to live in Sarah Lawrence’s traditional housing arrangements may apply for housing accommodations under the Specialized Housing Policy.

Sarah Lawrence College is a four year residential college and residence halls are an integral part of the learning environment. Living within the community and learning to share space and be respectful of others is part of that learning experience. Specialized housing will be provided according to the guidelines written in the Specialized Housing Policy Document below, with the understanding that students with documented disabilities may require unique housing configurations.

These needs are assessed on a case-by-case basis.

The Sarah Lawrence Residence Life Office is committed to achieving access and does not discriminate against persons with disabilities.

This policy is derived from the College’s commitment to non-discrimination for all persons in employment, access to facilities, student programs, activities and services and addresses reasonable accommodations.

For additional information or questions regarding the Specialized Housing Process, please contact Polly Waldman the Associate Dean of Studies and Disability Services at
