Animals in UCI Libraries' Buildings

Last reviewed: September 12, 2023

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), service animals are welcomed and permitted in UCI Libraries' buildings. For details on what constitutes a service animal, please see ADA's requirements for service animals and ADA's web page about service animals. Documentation is not required to use a service animal nor do these animals need to be registered with the Disability Services Center.

Users may be asked to answer the following questions by library staff:

  • Is the animal required because of a disability?
  • What work or task has the animal been trained to perform?

Other animals, including comfort or emotional support animals, are not permitted and users will be asked to take these animals outside.

For more information please see the Disability Services Center web site.
