Emotional Support Animal Policy

Emotional support animals can have a substantial role in therapy for a person with a psychiatric or mental disability. To honor this student need, Wilson College has established an emotional support animal policy. This policy is an agreement between the College and students that places heavy responsibility on the owner to humanely care for their emotional support animal, while causing no disturbance or damage to the community or facility. To qualify, the animal must be medically necessary for the student’s ability to use and enjoy a residence hall room.
