Would bedwetting be classed as a medical reason for having a private bathroom at uni? Watch
Plenty of people (myself included) apply for ensuite purely because it would be a nice luxury or because they prefer the privacy. Personally I think you'd be more entitled to an ensuite room than people like me because you have a genuine reason and I can sympathise with you, so definitely contact the university and I doubt it will be a problem
Yes. I'm very much in agreement... most people do apply for ensuites just because it's nice than sharing with 6-8 other people... You should tell the uni for sure and I hope that you get on alright!
The uni may be minded to grant the request, but I should think they won't have to if they decide not to.
If it were me I would complain until they gave it to me. I had a friend who got a single room every year at university (in the US that is much less common) because he has sickle cell disease. He only has one sickle cell crisis per year but that was enough for him to have his own room--basically he needed 5-6 days of privacy for the entire school year. If that's what made him more comfortable that's what they should have given him. After all he paid for the room. I don't see why I (who applied for en suite) should get placed there b/c I like it and someone with a medical problem shouldn't.
It's all down to how many en-suite bedrooms they have and what needs other students have. All I'm saying is they have no legal duty.
So to the OP, yes, I do believe that your uni can and will be able to accomodate your problem with an en-suite bathroom, I would let them know and I'm sure they will do their upmost to help you!
I'd say if you provided a doctor's note then they'd be very understanding of your situation and do their best to get you a private bathroom. As someone said, they seem very helpful about that sort of thing.
Um, OT, so sorry - but are we supposed to apply for accomodation at insurance places too? Oops.
That what plastic bags have been invented for.
