Assistance Animals in Student Housing

Berea College strives to be welcoming and accessible for all and is committed to assuring equal access to all students, staff, faculty, guests, and visitors. While Berea College’s Housing Policy states that pets (with the exception of fish) are not permitted in Berea College Student Housing, the College will allow exceptions to the no-pet policy and permit Assistance Animals, as defined by the Fair Housing Act to qualified students with disabilities or their qualified co-residing family member with disabilities who may require the use of such an animal.
