DISABLED STUDENTS MAY FACE ABLEIST CHALLENGES in
the campus residential environment. Although campus
housing plays a critical role in retention by promoting
social integration, little is known about what promotes
the engagement of disabled students in campus living
environments because the literature about these students
focuses on legal topics or accommodations. In this study, we
wanted to understand how disabled students experienced
living on campus and how the residential experience
promoted social integration. We employed a critical
constructivist case study approach, framing disability from
a social justice perspective. Data for this study come from
interviews with 24 students attending four highly residential
liberal arts colleges. Students reported that the degree of
accessibility, flexibility, use of accommodations, and staff
disability awareness and responsiveness influenced their
social integration and residential experience. Implications
for practice include providing disability-specific staff
training, tailoring accommodations to individual students,
conceptualizing access broadly, using single rooms
creatively, and viewing dining services as part of the housing
experience even if the administrative locations are different.

Association of College and University Housing Officers - International
(ACUHO-I).

Disabled students are an integral part of college and university
communities; 11% of college students self-identify to their postsecondary institution as having a disability (National Center for Education Statistics, 2016), though an additional 65% of students who
received special education services in high school choose not to
self-identify to their college (Newman & Madaus, 2015). As a result,
some postsecondary institutions are intentionally fostering practices designed to support disabled students (Evans, Broido, Brown,
& Wilke, 2017). Institutional factors that influence the retention
of disabled students include accommodations (Kim & Lee, 2016),

of impairment.
