There are different policies/processes for trained service animals and emotional support animals. The Service and Support Animal Policy can be found on the Student Disability Services website. Students seeking an approved emotional support animal must complete the Housing/Facility Accommodation Request Form and provide documentation to support the accommodation request. The form and documentation guidelines are available on the Student Disability Services website. Approved emotional support animals are only permitted in NSU residence halls and may not be taken elsewhere on the NSU campus or into other university property or facilities. Students who need a service animal in campus housing must register with the Office of Student Disability Services and provide the necessary documentation that the service animal meets all requirements for the presence of animals in public places (vaccinations, licensure, ID tags, etc.) mandated by state or local ordinances and has an annual clean bill of health from a licensed veterinarian. Students who are not living on campus and are using a service animal solely to access the campus environment are encouraged to register with the Office of Student Disability Services but are not required to do so. Students are responsible for the actions of any authorized animal, both trained service animals and approved emotional support animals, that they bring onto the campus grounds or into one of the campus facilities. • Students must adhere to the related policies specific to any building or classroom where an animal may or may not be taken. • Damage to property caused by the animal is prohibited. • Injuries to others caused by the animal are prohibited. • Students who fail to abide by these rules may be subject to disciplinary action. All questions related to service animals or support animals on NSU campus locations should be directed to the Office of Student Disability Services, via email at disabilityservices@nova.edu or by phone at (954) 262-7185.
