Lafayette College is committed to providing reasonable and appropriate dining accommodations to students with disabilities and chronic health conditions. The dining accommodations process is intended to address dining needs that may be difficult to meet through the College’s residential dining program. The process begins with identifying the student’s essential needs and then determining appropriate accommodation(s) that addresses those particular needs.
Accessibility Services requires supporting documentation from a qualified licensed professional that identifies how a dining accommodation supports the student’s medical or disability-related needs.
Accommodation requests for the next academic year must be submitted by March 1 (current students) or June 1 (incoming first-year students). Requests not made within a reasonable time frame may result in the College not being able to provide the requested accommodation. Students may contact Accessibility Services at any time regarding the accommodation request process.
