Emotional Support Animals

DSU recognizes the importance of emotional support animals (ESAs) for individuals with disabilities and has established a policy regarding ESAs to assist students.  The University also acknowledges that such animals' presence may present health, safety, security, and programmatic issues for other members of the community.  DSU reserves the right to alter ESA procedures, as necessary, at any time.

DSU reserves the right to enforce all relevant rules for the use of ESAs through the student conduct code and applicable laws.  The University also reserves the right to revoke the permission granted for the campus presence of any ESA whose owner fails to follow the requirements set forth in ESA procedures.

Requests for ESAs will only be reviewed under the procedure for university housing.  ESA animals will not be allowed in other campus facilities (i.e., classrooms, dining facilities, etc.)  according to DSU policy 916.001 Animals On Campus.

Requests that do not carry evidence of the ESA's necessity as a reasonable accommodation will be denied.

Accommodation requests are reviewed and managed by the Office of Disability Services.  For more information contact the Office of Disability Services at or by phone at 701-483-2686.
