Last Update:

Due to health reasons and a group living situation, absolutely no pets are allowed in the residence halls except those pre-approved to live in The Pet Wings or Dog Floor. These animals must be registered with the Residence Hall Director prior to their arrival on campus.

Students living in The Pet Wings or Dog Floor must realize that having a pet is a privilege and associated with it are certain responsibilities which follow:

  1. All roommates must be in total agreement to allow a pet in their room.
  2. All waste associated with the pet must be deposited directly in the dumpster by the loading dock. At no time is it to be placed in the trash receptacle in the residence hall.
  3. Any messes created by the pet must be attended to immediately by the caretaker.
  4. The caretaker is totally responsible for any damages caused by the pet, i.e., soiled carpets.
  5. Abuse of this privilege may result in its loss, confiscation of the pet, and/or suspension from College housing.
  6. Students living in The Pet Wings or Dog Floor should reference their animal contracts for more specific requirements.
  7. No birds, dogs, snakes or spiders will be allowed in The Pet Wings. All other pets will be approved or denied on an individual basis by the Residence Hall Director.
