Understand ADA, FHA & HUD Guidance to Process Requests with Confidence

College and University housing offices are likely making room for a wide-variety of animals on campus due to the increase in requests for service and emotional support animals as accommodations under the ADA. It can be easy for administrators (and residents, alike!) to become confused and overwhelmed by the amount of requests for animals on campus.

Additionally, different regulations govern the presence of service animals on campuses versus the presence of emotional support animals in residential facilities, so you are likely seeing requests for animals that range from typical household animals to, at times, not so typical species. It’s challenging to know which requests must be approved, as well as which may be denied.
