DIS Housing Placement Process

Matching You with the Best Housing Placement

We would like to make you aware of how DIS decides to place you in your housing:

1. DIS guarantees housing to all students who request, and pay for, DIS-arranged housing.

2. Your housing application indicates preferences, not a guaranteed spot in that particular option (nor a specific accommodation preference).

When applying for housing, you rank the three housing options in order of preference. By doing so, DIS can match you with the best option based on your housing application essay and other registration factors. All housing placements are made individually.

Note: You can only apply to one LLC theme.

3. For Fall 2021, DIS housing has been de-densified based on social distancing requirements.

No student will share a bedroom with more than one other DIS student, and we will limit the number of students who can gather together in common areas (kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, etc.). Students can request a single room in their housing application, and requests will be considered based on several factors with priority for students with health conditions that make them at increased risk for COVID-19, as well as students with disability accommodations and home university policy.

4. For Fall 2021, DIS will accept specific roommate requests (one request per student) – be sure that you and your roommate both request each other on the last page of the DIS Housing Application.

5. Specific housing accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis.

Ensure that you upload all pertinent accommodation documentation to the Health Information form in DIS Student Registration before the housing deadline, and clearly explain your specific accommodation needs and preference in your housing application.

6. Requests to live in specific buildings and/or locations cannot be honored.

DIS will place you in a location where we think you will enjoy living and be successful in engaging with the community. We will make these placements based on the information you provide on your housing registration, your course enrollment, and other factors.
