Housing Resources

Residential Accommodations are available to students who have documented disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. If you require housing accommodations for medical needs, contact Disability Resource Services to begin the process of determining the best course of action.

Disability Resource Services will review the required documents and communicate with the Office of Residence Life the recommendations that will assist you with academic achievement and/or daily functioning. The Office of Residence Life will then communicate the process for fulfilling the accommodation with you as the student making the request.



Maintenance and Repairs

Maintenance requests can be submitted online for any issues students may have in their residence hall, including issues with the bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, laundry room, or common areas. Please make a request as soon as you become aware of the situation – waiting may cause more problems and more inconvenience down the road.

IF YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY MAINTENANCE REQUEST CONTACT PUBLIC SAFETY AT (606) 477-0262

To submit a request, please fill out the Work Order Request Form.  This form will be routed to your Area Coordinator who will submit the final request with Facilities Management.  Please be sure to include the following in your request to ensure the quickest response:

  • Your contact information
  • Specific location
  • Detailed description of issue (e.g. “bottom drawer on dresser on left side of room is off the track” rather than “dresser broken”)
  • Any helpful photos can also be attached

Please Note: In order for requests to be handled in a timely manner, Facilities or Housekeeping personnel may be required to access rooms or suites when residents are not home. Facilities or Housekeeping personnel will always knock and announce their presence before entering any residential room or suite and will always lock the doors as they exit, regardless if it was unlocked when they entered.


Laundry

Washers and dryers are located in each residence hall on campus. The location of laundry facilities in each hall varies, so please contact your Resident Assistant or the Office of Residence Life if you have trouble locating it.  All laundry is free of cost to residents, just supply your own laundry detergent.

If you come across an issue with a machine, please fill out the Work Order Request Form and the Office of Residence Life will request service from the laundry vendor.
