Pets in Student Residential Facilities

Animals and pets, except those necessary for disabled individuals, are not permitted in student residential facilities. Violations of this policy may result in eviction with forfeiture of room charges and additional disciplinary action including but not limited to a fine. If you fail to remove a pet or animal from a residential area within the specified time, the animal or pet will be sent to the local animal shelter and a $100 fine and all costs associated with removal, cleaning, etc. will be assessed. Students may have properly maintained aquariums for fish in their rooms provided that the total capacity of all aquariums in a room does not exceed 20 gallons.
