Pet & Animal Policies

A welcoming and safe environment is paramount to all of our residents. To help ensure the health and safety of our communities, we require everyone with a pet or animal to sign our Walk2Campus Pet and/or Assistance Animal Policy and to complete a third-party screening and review process. This process ensures we have formalized pet and animal-related policy acknowledgments and more accurate records to create greater mutual accountability. For pets, there is a monthly pet fee ($25-35/pet/month for cats or small pets; $50-70/pet/month for dogs) and roommates must also sign off that they agree to live with the pet(s). Only 2 pets are permitted per unit. Only 1 assistance animal is permitted per resident. Please note that some of our markets participate in the PooPrints program to further ensure the safety and cleanliness of our community. Your leasing office can let you know if your market participates in PooPrints and what you will need to do to resigter your dog for the program. Please find the category below that best describes you to get started with your third-party screening and review. 

  • Household Pets

    This is a required application process for anyone that owns a household pet. This includes dogs and cats and might include pets that live in cages such as birds, hamsters, rabbits, snakes or fish tanks (because of the contained water) so please ask your housing provider for clarification regarding these types of pets.

  • Assistance Animals

    This is a required review process for anyone with a non-obvious disability and disability-related need for an assistance animal. This process provides a HIPAA compliant and secure way of submitting a reasonable accommodation request for an assistance animal (service animals, emotional support animals, companion animals, etc.) that will be reviewed by a third-party legal review team to ensure the accommodation request meets HUD’s Fair Housing Act guidelines. There is no cost ($0) to you to submit an accommodation request. Please make sure you are aware of your State’s laws, if any, for submitting a fraudulent accommodation request.

* NOTICE TO PET AND ANIMAL OWNING RESIDENTS & APPLICANTS: The screening process must be completed.
