AUL will implement the placement strategy through the following points:

• Conduct an extensive assessment of needs to determine which students require accommodations. This involves gathering information about disabilities, medical issues, and other special needs through confidential discussions with students and appropriate paperwork.

• Reassure students, faculty, and staff understand the placement process and any associated support service. Give directions on how to submit a request for accommodations, required documents, and the rights and responsibilities of each person concerned.


The main goal of this arrangement is to provide safe, affordable, and all-inclusive accommodation alternatives to students studying at Azerbaijan University of Languages. This policy seeks to ensure good health and well-being, well-organized workplaces with quality education, and a living environment that supports sustainability standards such as water conservation efforts. This policy also ensures that the university provides support (e.g., food, housing, transportation, legal services) to students from low-income families to help them graduate.
