It is important to note that Nicholls State University will accept and consider requests for reasonable accommodation in University housing at any time.  The individual making the request for accommodation should complete and provide the University Housing Reasonable Accommodation Registration Form to the Student Access Center as soon as practicably possible before moving into University housing. However, if the request for accommodation is made fewer than 60 days before the individual intends to move into University housing, Nicholls cannot guarantee that it will be able to meet the individual’s accommodation needs during the first semester or term of occupancy.
