ALL ACADEMICS, STAFF AND STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO

SUBJECT:   Comment Period New Policy on Animals As Accommodations for Disabilities in UC San Diego Housing

The Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor together with the Office for
Students with Disabilities, Disability Counseling and Consulting, and
Housing Dining and Hospitality has proposed a new campus policy -
applicable to UC San Diego students, faculty and staff - on Animals as
Accommodations for Disabilities in UC San Diego Housing.

The new policy provides information on the procedures and regulations
surrounding animals in campus housing. Our hope is that this policy will
help address an increasing number of inquiries in this area. The
university welcomes people who have disabilities, and this policy is
part of our ongoing work to ensure accessibility across campus.

The proposed new policy document is available for review on the campus
