Service animals are allowed anywhere on campus that the student or guest is allowed.

By definition, a service animal is a dog and in some limited circumstances a miniature horse that has been specially trained to assist the person with a disability.

If you are a person with a disability who has a service animal, you are strongly encouraged to register with Student Disability Services. This will help ensure a smooth experience on campus.

For more information, refer to the UMKC Service Animal and Pet Policy (PDF).
