Additional information

If you require special accommodations, you are required to note that information on your housing application.

Students with disabilities seeking any accommodations, modifications or auxiliary aids or services regarding any aspect of the full Cooper Union experience—including anything pertaining uniquely to one of the Cooper Union’s distinct schools—should contact the Dean of Students for assistance. Detailed information about Cooper Union's disability support services can be found here.

Roommates are assigned based on the answers provided in the housing application. Traits such as study habits, interests, major, sleep schedule and guest preferences are all considered. Though the Office of Housing & Residential Education does not guarantee that specific roommate requests will be honored, if a specific roommate is requested, the office will strongly consider that request when completing assignments. Specific roommate requests can be made on the housing application.
