The present thesis is a descriptive study that will explore how college programs for students with ASD can create residence life programs to support these students’ unique needs. The goal of this hypothetical residence hall would be to house college students with ASD along with their typically developing peers in an inclusive living-learning community on campus to provide a smoother transition into PSE. The areas of a residence hall explored in the present thesis include dorm room accommodations, sensory accommodations, social benefits, and mental health benefits. The hall will be referred to as “Hurley Hall.” The community of students housed in this hall will be a part of a living-learning community named “Together We Learn.”
