Lawrenson Hall - Pet Friendly Floors
Pet Friendly is not all of Lawrenson Hall, it is only rooms on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th floors.
- Students are limited to one pet per bedroom and have a roommate that agrees to the
terms and conditions of living in this community.
- Example A: Two pets maximum within one suite (four students). Typically, both pets would be the same species. Two students who want to live together and both have pets will live in separate bedrooms, however, they may get assigned random direct roommates since they did not request to live with anyone besides each other.
- Example B: Four students can live in a Lawrenson Hall suite because they want to be part of the pet-friendly community but choose not to have a pet. However, priority will be given to students with pets.
Belford Hall - Pet Friendly Single Rooms
All of Belford Hall will be Pet Friendly beginning the 2022-2023 academic year.
- Students are limited to one pet per room.
