Equal Opportunity and Access
Service and Assistance Animals
Northern Arizona University is committed to equal access for persons with disabilities in compliance with federal and state law. Students and visitors with disabilities may be accompanied by Service Animals in the University’s public areas and where fellow participants in University programs or activities are allowed. Service Animals may be excluded from a limited number of areas under certain circumstances. Students or employees with disabilities wishing to have an Assistance Animal on campus may seek an accommodation from Disability Resources that may allow them to do so. Employees may seek an accommodation to have a Service Animal in the workplace. Proper documentation of an individual’s disability may be required. With limited exceptions, animals other than Service Animals are not permitted in non-residential University buildings or facilities.
