Animals on Campus

Animals are generally not permitted in University buildings with some exceptions, such as service animals, service animals in training, and assistance animals determined to be a reasonable accommodation by the Services for Students with Disabilities office. Service animals may be used by individuals with disabilities in order to participate in or gain access to programs, benefits, or services at the University.

Testing Accommodations

The Modern Languages Building Testing Accommodations Center (TAC) will soon be open to allow instructors to schedule quizzes and exams in the space.  We anticipate being able to begin scheduling exams in the TAC starting on 9/27/21.

We have worked with the Library and the Registrar's Office to provide additional campus spaces where test accommodations can be implemented. That information can be found on this page, to the left of this message.
