Pets on Campus

Pets are not allowed in campus buildings at any time.  The only exceptions are: 

  1. service-animals assisting those with a qualified disability and
  2. emotional support/assistance animals, defined as an animal that "provides emotional support that alleviates one or more identified symptoms or effects of a person's disability." 
    • Emotional support/assistance animals are permitted in the residence of qualified persons to assist those who reside in campus housing.  For accommodation requests, please contact the TAMIU Compliance Office. 

 Pets may be allowed on campus grounds (but never in campus buildings) provided they are leashed and are not disruptive to campus activities, instructional or otherwise.  Owners are responsible for providing appropriate supplies to clean up after their pets, and failure to do so may result in a citation.  Unattended pets will be removed from University property and will be turned over to City of Laredo animal control authorities.
