Campbell University requires all main campus undergraduate students to live on campus for the first three years, unless they are over age 21 or commuting from the home of a parent. This is because we know that living in a campus community is a vital part of the college experience, and that students who live on campus are more engaged and more likely to graduate. Students with disabilities are an important part of that community, and housing accommodations provide access to this experience.
A standard housing assignment is a room shared by two students, with bathrooms that are shared by between 4 and 8 students. Students do study in their rooms, but they are encouraged to use the library if quiet study is needed. The second floor study area of Wiggins Library is open 24 hours during the academic year. These housing assignments also require participation in a University meal plan. Nutrition information and ingredient labels are provided for all foods served in the dining halls and gluten free bread items are available at many locations on campus. Aramark has designated an on-campus contact for students who have specific dietary needs.
If you believe you may need an accommodation to fully participate in campus housing, please contact Disability Services for more information. Requests for housing accommodations must be received by May 1 for new students and February 15 for returning students. After that date, we will work to meet your needs, but our options are far more limited.
Housing accommodations must be renewed each year.
How to request housing accommodation
- Notify us of your need for accommodation by completing our New Student Registration Forms and Housing Accommodation Form.
