Private Room Requests

Medical Accommodation

Private rooms are guaranteed to students who have documented medical conditions and who have been determined eligible for a private room by the Office of Disability Resources and who apply by the deadine.  The deadline to apply for a medical accommodation is the last business day in May. 

The steps to request an accommodation are as follows:

  1. Schedule an appointment with a Disability Services staff member (G-4 Student Union) to register as a student with a disability. The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the documentation you have regarding your specific disability and reasonable accommodations that may be granted.
  2. Provide current and appropriate documentation of your disability. Please see documentation guidelines on the main Disability Services page.
  3. Meet regularly with the Disability Services staff to review the effectiveness of services received, to update information or to discuss changes in services. It is the responsibility of the student to schedule appointments with the Disability Services staff and alert them of any concerns with respect to their accommodations.
  4. Complete and submit the Housing Accommodation Verification Form

Note: Housing accommodations must be renewed each year.  The Office of Disability Services is available to assist in obtaining the necessary documentation by providing referrals to qualified professionals. 

Non-Medical Accommodation

Students requesting a private room that is not part of a medical accommodation should complete an online request form, which can be found at my.pitt.edu  (click on Johnstown Campus Housing and Dining Services task centerand then open the private room request).

Private rooms are granted based on senioirty using the student's terms in residence (how many terms a student has resided on campus) and are subject to availability. Private rooms are typically not granted until after the semester begins. Students who do not complete the online private room request form will not be eligible for consideration. 

Students are notified via their Pitt email if approved for a private room.
