Religious Accommodation Requests

Columbia Residential is committed to providing a safe, inclusive and supportive experience for all students. We recognize student observance of their faith tradition may require provision for reasonable accommodation. We will work with students in an effort to meet their individual needs and will engage in an interactive process to determine reasonable accommodations.

To submit a request for accommodation based on religious observance, the following must be submitted within 5 business days of submission of the housing application:

  • Religious Accommodation Request Form
    This form must be completed and signed by the student requesting accommodation AND the student's religious leader. Contact information for the religious leader must be included for follow-up.
  • Statement of Support from your Religious Leader
    This supporting documentation must be on the religious leader's organizational letterhead. The purpose of this letter is to affirm for the student's current and sincerely-held religious/faith practice and provide support for their request for reasonable accommodation.

Requests submitted after housing assignments have been made may not be able to be accommodated. If Columbia Residential becomes aware that false information was submitted on behalf of an applicant, we may not accept the forms or may cancel the housing contract. With any questions, please contact us.
