Pet Animals

Policy Statement

Pet animals are not allowed in any University buildings and are not to be tied up outside University buildings.

The reasons for this policy are:

  • They are a nuisance to many people and pose a threat to some.
  • They may foul the inside of buildings and the campus grounds.
  • They are a source of infection and a cause of allergic reactions to some people.
  • They are a danger and source of infection to research animals.

Guide dogs providing support for the visually challenged are exempted from this policy.
