Pet-Friendly Dormitories

Pet-Friendly Dormitories
June 7, 2010

While most colleges do not want students to bring their pets to campus, a minority of institutions are creating pet-welcoming dormitories, The New York Times reported. The article focuses on Stephens College, a women's institution in Missouri, which not only is letting students bring pets to a dormitory, but has set up a kennel to take care of animals when students are not in their rooms. Two years ago, The Boston Globe reported on a cat-friendly approach at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The downside to this trend (and to students sneaking in pets at colleges that don't allow them) is apparent in reports in some college towns about increases in abandoned pets at the end of academic years.
