Pets at university

What are the rules with bringing pets along to university?

I would like to bring my Labrador with me but also live in student halls
I think it highly unlikely course you will be able to live with you dog or any other pet for that matter in student halls.

You'll have to arrange private accommodation and this will prove difficult. Most landlords specify no pets but it is of course possible.

Ensure that you will be able to look after your pet properly, remember university can be demanding despite what people say and looking after a pet (especially a dog) simultaneously may prove a big commitment.
