Subject to Change Without Notice

The University of New Mexico maintains an environment designed to support the education, research, and public service mission of the University. Since the presence of animals on University property can adversely affect the normal functions of the University, disrupt community living on campus, and interfere with the rights of others to participate in University activities by causing bodily harm to individuals, unsanitary conditions, and nuisances, the University has adopted the following policy pertaining to animals on campus.

*This policy does not apply to animals used by the University for teaching, research, therapeutic, or other authorized University activities. Nor does this policy apply to the service and assistance animals addressed in UAP 2295 ("Service and Assistance Animals").
