NEED TO UPDATE YOUR HOUSING PREFERENCES?

Please note that all assignments are made without regard to race, sexual orientation, religion, or national origin, and the University rejects all requests for assignment changes based upon these reasons.


NEED A SPECIFIC ASSIGNMENT DUE ACCOMMODATION?

McKendree University works to serve and advocate for students with disabilities, ensuring equal access to educational opportunities and programs while promoting self-advocacy and independence. If you feel you require a housing accommodation or assistance animal while attending the University, it is advised that you submit a request with the Office of Disability Services. If approved, the Office of Disability Services will inform Residence Life of your requirements and we will work with you to ensure they are met.
