It is the policy of University of Lynchburg that individuals are generally prohibited from having animals other than fish in college housing. However, University of Lynchburg recognizes two instances of exception to this policy: Service Animals and Emotional Support Animals (ESA).
Service Animals in Training
The University of Lynchburg does not permit Service Animals in Training in their buildings, facilities or residence halls.
Emotional Support Animals
Emotional Support Animals (ESA) are approved for students who qualify, and are allowed only in the individual student’s residential space. They are not allowed in common areas of a residence and are not allowed in any other buildings on campus.
Arrangements for residential students with Service Animals and approval for Emotional Support Animals are made through the Center for Accessibility and Disability Resources and in cooperation with the Office of Residence Life. Questions and concerns about animals on campus should be directed to the Center for Accessibility and Disability Resources.
