30.0 Animals On Campus
30.1 In Buildings
Pets are permitted only in The Pet Wing(s) as stated in the Residence Hall License and those areas approved for educational purposes (e.g., Veterinary Science Technology).
Assistance animals (also known as emotional support animals) are only permitted in the residence halls and must be pre-approved. Students interested in applying for permission to have an assistance animal should review the Service & Assistance Animal Policy and Application for Assistance Animal.
The use of a service dog by an individual with a disability is an exception to this rule. ADA defines a service animal as any dog that is individually trained to do the work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual or other mental disability.
Personal pets and assistance animals are not allowed in non-residential campus buildings and administrative offices.
30.2 On Grounds
All pets that are on the campus grounds must be under the direct control of their owner. (Dogs must be leashed and restrained). The Dog Control Law of the Village of Canton is in full effect on this campus.
Village Code requires that pet owners pick up and properly discard animal waste.
Pets are not allowed on any of the athletic fields.
