ASU Pet Policy

ASU Pet Policy

At ASU, we understand that pets are members of your family. That’s why we allow residents living in ASU family housing up to two pets – but breed and size restrictions apply .

Before moving a pet into ASU family housing, you must receive approval. Student residents must complete a Pet Addendum and pay a nonrefundable fee of $200 for any pets in the home. The lone exception to this fee is fish that are housed in a 10-gallon tank or smaller.

Unauthorized pets can result in fines, cleaning fees and may even jeopardize your residential lease.

Health and Safety Inspections

Health and Safety Inspections

All on-campus residences, including ‘ASU family housing, are required to undergo health and safety inspections. Student residents will be notified by email or phone at least 48 hours prior to inspection time. Failure to comply with inspections or other University Housing policies may result in disciplinary action.
