Housing and Dining Accommodations
Saint Leo University works to provide a wide variety of housing and dining options on-campus that can accommodate the vast majority of disability needs. Students who require housing and/or dining accommodations must complete a New Student Application. Students who are already registered with the Office of Accessibility Services can log into their AIM profile to request additional accommodations. Specific information about housing and dining accommodations can be found below.
The Office of Residence Life provides appropriate housing based on necessary accommodations as determined by the Office of Accessibility Services. Modified housing, such as private rooms, roll-in sinks, etc., are assigned on a first come, first served basis. Requests submitted after all modified rooms have been assigned are filled as space becomes available.
Students who are approved for housing or dining accommodations must request that the Office of Accessibility Services renew those accommodations on a yearly basis. Additional documentation may be requested for the renewal of these accommodations.
In order to apply for housing accommodations, returning students should make their need for accommodations (new or renewal) known prior to the housing selection deadlines that are posted annually by the Office of Residence Life. Incoming students should make their requests to the Office of Accessibility Services within two weeks of the enrollment deposit but no later than July 1st. Late requests will be considered on a space-available basis; however, students should be aware that housing options become increasingly limited as time goes on. Roommates will be assigned to students with disabilities occupying modified rooms following the same procedures as with other students at Saint Leo University. Rental rates for students with documented disabilities shall, likewise, be set at the same rate as any other student.
Requests for housing changes for reasons other than disability accommodations should be filed according to the procedures posted by the Office of Residence Life.
Per Saint Leo University policy, students living on campus are required to purchase a meal plan. This is to ensure that students have access to quality and nutritious meals while residing on campus. All students (with the exception of those living in Apartments 1-4) must purchase the unlimited meal plan. Students living in Apartments 1-4 must choose from the 5, 10, or unlimited meal plans. Students living on the East Campus (approximately 4 miles from the University Campus) are not required to purchase a meal plan but may also choose from the 5, 10, or unlimited meal plan.
Saint Leo University understands that students adhere to a variety of diets and may experience different food sensitivities. The Dining Services management is committed to providing a variety of options to all students to meet a multitude of pallets. Every effort will be made to accommodate students within the on-campus dining program.
In the rare case that the Saint Leo University Dining Services cannot accommodate a student’s dietary needs, adjustments to or exemptions from the required meal plan will be granted.
The following reasons alone are not grounds for a meal plan adjustment or exemption:
- Voluntary diets, such as a vegetarian or vegan diet
- Saving money
- Having more meals than are utilized
- Having a room with a kitchen or kitchenette
