Animals on Campus

Animals in college buildings, classrooms, offices or grounds may cause health, safety, liability, sanitary, or custodial problems. Animals are permitted in college buildings if they are:

  • Service animals that are specifically trained to perform tasks for students, staff or visitors with disabilities such as guiding people who are blind; alerting people who are deaf; pulling wheelchairs; alerting and protecting those who are having a seizure; or performing other special tasks. As defined by the ADA, animals whose function is to provide comfort or emotional support DO NOT qualify as service animals.
  • Animals under the guidance and control of college staff for the purpose of research, instruction, or other endeavors related to the college mission.

Animals on college grounds shall be on leash or in a vehicle, and remain outside all buildings. Owners shall exercise responsibility for immediate clean up and proper removal of waste. TBCC policy, Article No. 202.5
