The University of California, Los Angeles ("UCLA" or the "University") recognizes the importance of providing reasonable accommodations and modifications in its housing policies, practices, and services where necessary, for individuals with disabilities to be afforded equal access to the use and enjoyment of University-owned Housing. The website and subsequent handbook explain the specific requirements and guidelines which govern requests for reasonable accommodation in University housing.
The UCLA Center for Accessible Education (CAE) is responsible for the administration of UCLA’s commitment to ensuring access and participation for all students with qualifying disabilities. The Housing Accommodations Board through the Center for Accessible Education ("CAE") is responsible for evaluating requests for a reasonable accommodation and/or modification in University-owned housing. The CAE's Housing Accommodations Board evaluates housing accommodation requests, on a case-by-case matter, in accordance with California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA); The Federal Fair Housing Act (FHA), as amended by the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988; Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990), and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), and other laws or regulations as appropriate.
In evaluating the request, the Housing Accommodation Board will consult with UCLA Residential Life, the CAE, and other need-to-know individuals, as necessary, to determine whether the requested accommodation is necessary and reasonable.
