Policy Details

Because of restrictions governing University insurance policies, concerns for the integrity of research projects, and interest in the welfare of faculty, students, staff, and visitors, it is the policy of Emory University that animals not be permitted in University buildings.


This policy does not apply to animals used for approved research or to service animal such as guide dogs. It does apply to all domestic and feral animals and to all Emory University buildings used for teaching, research, office work, retail, and shop work.
