Service & Emotional Support Animals

The policy of the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) generally welcomes service animals in its buildings, classrooms, residence halls, meetings, dining areas, recreational facilities, activities and events when the animal is accompanied by an individual with a disability.

UMSL will not permit service animals when the animal poses a substantial and direct threat to health or safety or when the presence of the animal constitutes a fundamental alteration to the nature of the program or service. UMSL will make those determinations on a case-by-case basis.

Information on the university's policy on service and emotional support animals can be found on the Health, Counseling & Disability Access Services' website.
