Emotional Support Animals
Students who desire an emotional support animal while living on campus should apply with Disability Services using the Register link at latech.edu/ods. Additionally, the student must complete and submit the Assistance Animal Packet to TDS. The packet is linked below. Carefully read the packet for further instructions and requirements. If an ESA is the only accommodation requested, the ESA packet is the only documentation necessary.
Emotional Support Animal applications with all required documentation MUST be received a minimum of 30 days prior to the start of the quarter requested. ESA applications received after the deadline will be considered for the following quarter.
Students desiring a private room or a similar housing accommodation on campus should register with Disability Services using the link posted at latech.edu/ods. Medical documentation must be provided to support the request for a private room (refer to the “Documentation Requirements” page linked on the left side of your screen). Private rooms are subject to availability. If a student is approved for housing accommodations, Disability Services will confer with Housing on behalf of the student. The Housing Department makes final decisions on private rooms.
Students requiring changes to meal plans due to dietary restrictions should register with Disability Services. TDS will then speak with Campus Dining on behalf of the student.
Disability-related requests for assistance on Graduation Day are handled by TDS on a case-by-case basis. Please contact our office: firstname.lastname@example.org at least two weeks in advance of graduation to make a request.
Please make an appointment with TDS staff if you are a disabled student and would like to register to vote.
