Pets-Student Affairs - Carnegie Mellon University


Dogs, cats and other pets are not permitted in any university buildings including residence halls and fraternities and sororities, with the only exception being guide dogs. Specifically, pets are prohibited from being in offices, classrooms, hallways and other areas at all times.

Dogs are permitted on campus grounds when leashed and properly attended. Dogs may not be left tied to trees or other objects on campus.

If a problem arises with any animal, University Police should be called. The university will obtain the assistance of Animal Control Services as required to remove any animal in violation of these regulations from the campus. The owner may reclaim animals that are removed by Animal Control within three days. A file of reports on animals recently removed from the Carnegie Mellon campus will be maintained in the Carnegie Mellon University Police Office. Individuals who violate this policy are subject to university disciplinary procedures.
