University policy prohibits staff from bringing or having animals or pets in campus facilities at any time. This same policy will extend to students and guests wishing to bring animals or pets into university buildings, including the Alumni Memorial Union. Service animals are permitted when the Office of Disability Services guidelines are met. Some exceptions apply for pets in residence hall space, see the Office of Residence Hall policies on Pets. Therapy and emotional support animals may be permitted inside university buildings when a physician's prescription is provided in advance. Take A Break Pet Therapy programming will be permitted when scheduled through the Alumni Memorial Union Event Services Office.
