Hamilton College supports students seeking assistance with animal housing accommodations. The Accessibility Resources Office, which is located in the Elihu Root House, strives to ensure that qualified students with disabilities are accommodated in a manner that supports therapeutic treatment. Students are required to meet with the Assistant Dean for Accessibility Resources before bringing an assistance/emotional support animal to campus.

Registration Process

  • Register with the Accessibility Resources Office.
  • Meet with the Assistant Dean for Accessibility Resources to review any pertinent campus-wide policies that may relate to the animal. An appointment can be made by calling the office at 315-859-4021.
  • Registrant should submit recent documentation by a specialist in the appropriate field.

  • The student Handler should provide current and appropriate evidence of the cat or dog’s immunizations and vaccination history (for other animals, documentation citing their “clean bill of health”). When applicable, the animal must wear a rabies vaccination tag. Along with the Veterinary Health Form, current immunization and vaccination records should be submitted to the Accessibility Resources Office and be updated as necessary.
  • The student Handler should submit a recent picture of the dog (used to create a Hamilton Animal ID).
