Pets


Pets are prohibited in any undergraduate or graduate residence hall unless specifically notified otherwise. The term “pet” includes mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. Residents are permitted to keep fish unless specifically notified otherwise.

Upper-class students in the following residence halls may be eligible to participate in a program that allows a very limited number of cats to be kept in certain residence halls.

Residents requiring accompaniment by a service dog first must obtain permission from Student Disabilities Services to keep the dog on campus. If a roommate is accompanied by a dog, and a resident is not comfortable with this arrangement, a transfer will be allowed.
