Animals on Campus
Animals are permitted on campus grounds provided:
- They are on a leash at all times;
- They are attended to at all times; and
- They are under the control of their owners at all times.
In consideration of personal safety and sanitation, privately-owned animals are not allowed in college buildings, except:
- Service or leader dogs; and
- Animals in Farnsworth Hall associated with our Veterinary Science Technology program.
A service animal is defined by the ADA as “any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual or other mental disability.”
Owners are expected to clean up after their pets. These same regulations apply to the college-owned Outdoor Education Center located on Route 28. Persons violating this policy will be requested to leave campus immediately. Animals found unattended may be impounded by the University Police Department and turned over to the Delhi Animal Control Officer.
To report the presence of an animal, call University Police at 607-746-4700.
