Disabled Students' Residence Program (DSRP)

The DSRP is sponsored by the University and the State Department of Rehabilitation. The program provides students with experienced staff to assist with personal care while students are developing their independent learning skills. The Housing Office works closely with the DSRP to accommodate students with disabilities. Some residence hall rooms are modified for physically, hearing, and visually impaired students.
