Animals on Campus and in Buildings

With the exception of certified service animals and animals specially approved for the educational purposes of the College, the presence of animals in all college-owned or leased buildings, including residential and non-residential buildings and gated athletic facilities, is prohibited, with the possible exception of College rental housing. For rental properties, this issue will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Dogs and other animals are permitted on campus roads, walks, and grounds, as they are in the local community, when they are on a leash and controlled by the owner. It is the owner's responsibility to clean up after the animal. All pets must be tagged, registered, and vaccinated in accordance with Pennsylvania State Law.
