Religious Observation Housing

This process is intended solely for students whose current and regular religious practice prohibits the use of a key card for an electronic lock on the Sabbath. 

Purpose

We seek to provide reasonable accommodation based on students’ sincerely held religious beliefs. 

To accommodate Jewish students who do not use electronic devices on the Sabbath based on their religious belief and current practice, the Undergraduate Housing Office permits religiously observant students to request a manual key for their assigned residence hall. These requests must be submitted by the application deadline.
