I'm a freshman this year at Winona State. When I was signing up for dorms I had my GI write a letter about
my condition and the nature of the disease and I also wrote a personal statement (more to make them pity me :) ) I said I wanted a dorm with a bathroom right across the hall and they actually granted my request. Even though there are only 2 stalls in our bathroom on my side of the hall there is almost never people in both the stalls. Freshman here are really aren't eligible for suites (eligibility for them goes by number of credits earned) but this set up is actually pretty nice. If the college refuses to make any reasonable accommodations they can get in some big trouble so I don't see why they wouldn't. Also, I wouldn't suggest a bunk bed. It sucks sooo bad to have to climb out of a bunk when you're about
to poop your pants.
Wish him good luck for me!!
