Housing Disability Assignment Appeal Process
A student with a documented disability or a parent or advocate on behalf of the student and with the student’s permission may make a written request for reasonable housing accommodation(s) or a housing exemption. Said request should include appropriate documentation of the student’s disability. The request for the housing accommodation or exemption form will be available on-line or in the Housing Office.
The request form shall be forwarded to the ADA Subcommittee of the Affirmative Action Committee for a determination. Within two (2) weeks of receipt of the request for accommodation or exemption, the committee will make a decision. The decision will then be mailed by the Housing Office to the student.
A student (or the student’s parent or advocate on behalf of the student) who is dissatisfied with the decision of the Subcommittee as to the requested accommodation(s) or housing exemption (i.e. does not believe that the housing assignment or denial of exemption accommodates the student’s disability or in some way endangers the student’s safety or health) may file a written appeal to the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Access, 103 Wells Hall, Murray State University, Murray, KY 42071, along with any supporting documentation. Said appeal shall be filed in the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Access within ten (10) days from the date of receipt of the original decision by the Subcommittee as to the request for reasonable accommodation(s)/housing exemption. No one involved in the initial decision by the Subcommittee shall be involved in the determination on appeal which shall be made by the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Access. The Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Access shall make a written determination within thirty (30) days from the date it received the appeal. The decision of the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity and Access shall be final.
