This fall we will welcome pets on our campus. With plenty of open space for dog-walking and many sunny windows for cat-napping, Lyon's campus can serve as a great home for your best friend. To support your pets, the College is adding pet waste disposal bins to its campus and will hold a pet blessing ceremony every October. The College will also offer pet obedience classes so that your furry friend can get an education too.

It's a walk in the park! But before you move your pet's bed to your new room, there are a few guidelines you need to know:
Bryan Hall has been designated as Lyon's first pet-friendly residence hall. Pet-friendly housing is for those students who would like to have registered family pets living on campus with them, or who will not be bringing a pet but would like to live in a pet-friendly hall. Please see the Pet Policy for more information. Unapproved animals are not allowed in residence halls or apartments or College-owned houses.
Register Your pet
Lyon College's policies on emotional support animals function separately from its pet-friendly housing. A student approved for an emotional support animal may live in any residence without paying extra fees for their pet.
Students in any residence may have an aquatic pet that lives comfortably in a ten-gallon or less fish tank at no extra cost.
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
