Animals that bear fur, hair or feathers, pose fear or danger, make noise, or are too large to be kept inside a 30-gallon tank are not permissible in residence halls including animals who are visiting temporarily. Fish in a 30-gallon tank or smaller are allowable without permission.
Other pets must be approved by obtaining written permission of roommate(s), adjoining rooms, and the approval of a professor of biology who is able to ascertain the owners knowledge and ability to properly care for the animal. This must be submitted to the Residence Life Office for approval. Any animal found roaming loose in the hall or not properly cared for will be banned.
Violation will result in a $25 fine the first time the animal is observed. At this time, 48-hours is allowed for removal of the pet. If after 48-hours, the pet remains or reappears in any student room, the original owner will be fined an additional $25 and the animal will be taken to a pet adoption center.
