Dogs and other animals, except for police dogs, certified guide/assistance/service animals used by individuals with disabilities, and animals authorized for participation in College instructional programs for teaching or research purposes, are not permitted in campus buildings.
For this procedure, we use these definitions:
Guide, assistance and service animals
Wild or feral animals
Wild or feral animals that are a potential risk, represent a hazard, cause property damage, create a nuisance, or otherwise pose a potential conflict for humans are to be reported to the Manager of Facilities Services or campus security, who will ensure that follow up is coordinated with appropriate animal/wildlife rescue agencies. Wild or feral animals kept as pets are not permitted on campus.
Questions or concerns regarding this procedure may be directed to the Director, Safety, Security & Risk Management or the Director of Facilities Services.
