Helping animals, such as guide dogs, are permitted on University grounds and in University buildings as they assist their owner. Pets are not permitted on University property unless under the immediate control of their owner. Owners are responsible for clean up after their pets on University grounds. Pets are not permitted in University buildings.
While we are fully aware of the value of pet ownership, the presence of animals in University buildings may introduce disease into animal colonies that could impact our ongoing research. Additionally, people may be exposed to allergens and other risks in ways that are not compatible with our goal of a safe environment.
Failure to abide by this rule may result in disciplinary action.
