Information about service animals on campus

As service animals and emotional support animals become more common in public venues, a few guidelines will be helpful to promote positive experiences for students, faculty and staff within the George Fox  community. These guidelines are intended to protect the rights and safety of all community members.

No one should interact with a service animal or emotional support animal unless given permission by the handler.

If any member of the George Fox community indicates he or she has an allergy or phobia to dogs and is affected by the presence of dogs on campus, please notify the Disability Services Office as soon as possible. We will work toward a solution that meets the needs of all involved.

The university allows emotional support animals in campus housing under certain conditions. Students must have approval from the housing office and the Disability Services Office prior to bringing an emotional support animal into campus housing. Emotional support animals are not permitted in university buildings except approved campus housing
