Campus Pet Policy

Except for service animals and assistance animals, pets are prohibited from all campus buildings as follows:

  • Food service areas, by regulations of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
  • Academic and administrative buildings (including the Campus Center), by the Faculty Senate approval of a motion made by the University Health Council in December 1975.
  • Residence halls and apartments (living units), by long-standing order of the Board of Trustees, with exceptions for full-time, live-in Faculty-in-Residence.
