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.
Students requesting a private room that is not part of a medical accommodation should complete an online request form, which can be found at Ask Cathy (click on Housing and Dining Services and then open the private room request).
Private rooms are granted based on the 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. Private rooms that are not part of a medical accommodation will be greatly limited, if available at all, for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Students are notified via their Pitt email if approved for a private room.
