For reasons of health, hygiene, and maintenance, pets are not permitted in the residence halls, with the exception of fish. This includes pets that are in the residence hall on a “visiting” or “temporary” basis. Pets found in the residence halls are subject to immediate removal and transfer to Iowa City Animal Control authorities. Pet owners will be responsible for Animal Control’s fees as well as for any custodial/maintenance fees resulting from damage by the pet(s). All occupants of the room where the pet is found are subject to disciplinary action. Fish are allowed in tanks no larger than 20 gallons.
