An emotional support animal is one that provides comfort to a specific student who has a documented disability and has medical documentation that warrants a support animal.  ESAs may be allowed into residences or other buildings under specific circumstances. These situations will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Center for Accessible Learning Office.

Until an animal is approved as an ESA, the Pets on Campus policy will apply with respect to the animal’s access to campus. Any student who is requesting the presence of an ESA must apply for approval from the Centre for Accessible Learning.
