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. 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.
