The Department of Housing and Residential Life assists resident students and their families with housing-related special accommodations.  Examples include overseeing attendant care access to the building daytime/overnight), facilitating remote access to student rooms where power assisted doors are installed, and coordinating with Facilities Customer Service any needed minor facility adaptions.  Both single and double occupancy adapted rooms are currently provided in Mahoney College as well as single and double occupancy apartments in University Village.

Attendant care arrangements are done with private providers and is the responsibility of the student.  Individual caregivers who will be providing assistance within on-campus housing and/or the private provider must provide photo identification prior to accessing the building or student’s room for documentation and security purposes.  If space is available to accommodate a live-in attendant, the room charge will be applied to the student’s individual account.

Parking arrangements for visiting/live-in attendants are made through the Office of Parking and Transportation Services.  Their telephone number is (305) 284-3096 and their office e-mail address is parking.gables@miami.edu.

Specific questions about facility adaptations as well as inquiries about minor changes post-move in can be directed to Facilities Customer Service (FCS) at (305) 284-8282 or via www.miami.edu/fcs.
