Dogs, cats and other animal pets (with the exception of tropical fish) are not permitted in campus buildings. They may be walked on campus but must be on a leash, as appropriate, and can never be left unattended. This policy does not apply to the live animals used for teaching and research in science departments, service animals, or in appropriate circumstances assistance animals for those with documented disabilities.
Along with state code that bans animals from dining facilities, there are health, sanitation and personal safety issues which promote the formation of this policy.
