The University of Northern Colorado (UNC) will allow students to live with the pet dog or domesticated cat beginning in the fall of the 2014-2015 school year. The student and pet will live at Lawrenson Hall on the 2nd-4th floors. The restriction to this progressive change is only certain dog breeds will be allowed and the dog’s weight is a maximum of 40 pounds when fully grown. Only one dog per bedroom will be allowed. Students will have the option of buying the entire room for $500 or their roommate must agree to living with the pet in Lawrenson Hall.

Student will be financially responsible for the care of the dog/cat and pay for any damage the dog/cat may cause to the room or UNC community.

It’s hoped that this change will help keep students living on campus and the responsibility of a pet will help students feel less homesick, and more mature because of their responsibility to their pet.
