Service and Support Animals at Events
- Pets and other animals are restricted on the UCSC Campus.
- A service animal is defined as any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability. As established and defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), service animals shall not be excluded from UC Santa Cruz facilities or activities.
- A support animal is an animal that an individual with a disability utilizes for emotional support, well-being, or comfort. Because they are not individually trained to perform work or tasks, support animals are not service animals.
- Partners of service/support animals must: ensure their animal is under control; adhere to cleanup rules; ensure that the animal is not posing a threat, health risk, or creating a nuisance.
