The University generally allows individuals with service animals in its buildings, classrooms, residence halls, dining areas, recreational facilities, land and any other area of the University where people are normally permitted when the individual with a disability indicates the service animals is trained to provide, and does so provide, a specific task directly related to the individual’s disability.
Assistance animals, animals used in study or scientific coursework, or animals approved for special events on campus, including all buildings, common or public areas, and nature trails, pet animals are not allowed on University property unless permission has been obtained through the Office of Environmental Health and Safety. Assistance Animals are confined to use in University Housing as a University-approved accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities. Assistance Animals are not “service animals” under the ADA, but may be permitted in University Housing, pursuant to the Fair Housing Act. Assistance Animals are not pets.
