Assistance Animal Student Request Form

Fall 2020 Students:

Assistance Animal accommodation requests for freshmen and transfer students starting Fall 2020 will be accepted starting the week of May 18, 2020. Any applications submitted before May 18 will not be reviewed. To ensure that your application for Fall is reviewed at the appropriate time, please submit after May 18.

The need for an Assistance Animal due to disability must be identified by a qualified professional and approved through Accessibility Resources.  A request to have an Assistance Animal within University of Cincinnati owned and operated housing is considered a request for an accommodation and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

A diagnosis or medical provider recommendation alone does not guarantee the request will be approved. The Accessibility Resources staff considers the nature of the condition’s symptoms and all available accommodations and supports when making final decisions and recommendations. Accessibility Resources reserves the right to request additional documentation when making a determination.

If you need assistance in completing this form or require accommodations to do so, please contact Accessibility Resources 513-556-6823 or email
