Reminder regarding animals on campus
The Animals on Campus policy at Western Washington University is currently under review.
In the interim, the current policy remains in effect. The Central Health and Safety Committee would like to remind the campus community that pets and non-ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) service animals are not allowed in university buildings. ADA Service animals assist persons with disabilities as outlined by State and Federal law.
All animals on campus must be under the immediate control of their handler. For the purposes of this regulation, "under immediate control" means leashed. Bellingham city codes pertaining to leash laws and other animal control matters are enforced on the WWU campus.
Please note: Emotional support or comfort animals are not allowed in university buildings except in university residence buildings in accordance with their policy.
Questions regarding use of service animals may be directed to disAbility Resources for Students and the Equal Opportunity Office. Employees who require service animal assistance must contact Human Resources to request reasonable accommodation.
