In consideration of personal safety, as well as sanitation, privately owned animals are not permitted in any buildings on campus. Only in the following cases are animals allowed:

  1. Seeing Eye or leader dogs for the visually handicapped.
  2. Animals that are brought on campus for a specifically authorized and approved animal show, contest, or other event involving the display or demonstration of skills of trained animals.


Any animals on campus that do not meet either of the above provisions must be leashed and attended to at all times. Persons violating this policy will be requested to leave campus with their animal immediately. Animals found unattended may be impounded by the ECU police and turned over to animal control officers.


To report the presence of an animal or the occurrence of an animal bite on Main Campus, call the ECU Police Department at 328-6787. On the Health Sciences Campus, call 744-2246.
