Dogs on Campus

The rights of others will always take precedence over the rights of people who bring dogs to campus. There are requirements and restrictions for having a dog on campus. These include, but are not limited to, the following:

  1. Dogs must be kept on a leash while on Willamette University property.
  2. Dogs are not allowed in residences, College of Law buildings, Atkinson Graduate School of Management, Goudy Commons, The Bistro, Cat Cavern, Kaneko Commons food service area, Hatfield Library (including the Fish Bowl), or the Montag Center (except for dogs to aid persons with disabilities).
  3. Dog owners must clean up after their dogs.
  4. Dogs may not be left unattended by their owners.
