DIS Housing Placement Process

Matching You with the Best Housing Placement

We would like to give you insight into how DIS determines your housing:

1. DIS guarantees housing to all students who request it.

2. Housing placements and accommodations are made on an individual basis.

In order to create housing communities where all students can thrive, the DIS Housing Team reviews each housing application individually to determine your placement. In addition to considering the preferences shared in your housing essay, we are committed to honoring your accommodation needs related to religion, disability, and gender identity. Reach out to healthaccommodation@disabroad.org if there’s anything you’d like us to know about how to support your accommodation needs related to these identities, and be sure to upload any disability accommodation documentation to your registration portal before the housing application deadline.

3. Your housing application indicates preferences, not a guaranteed spot in that particular option.

When applying for housing, you list two top preferences by housing option type. DIS can then match you with the best option based on your housing application essay and other registration factors.

Note: You can apply for two different themes when applying to an LLC. One LLC theme will count as one preference – a second theme will count as a second preference.

4. Requests to live with a specific roommate or for specific locations will not be honored.

We believe this encourages you to meet new people. DIS will place you in a location where we think you will enjoy living and be successful in engaging with the community. Specific roommate requests are granted in some Homestays.
