    How big is the pen? if it's small enough then maybe you could fit it in your wardrobe during the day and let him out at night. Or there may be space under the bed. If he sleeps during the day anyway, it won't matter that he's in a cupboard or something.

    Go to your unis' open and visit days and go on campus/accomodation tours to find potential hiding places. Pick the accomodation with the best facilities to hide a hedgehog, take into account how noisy the halls are - some are very quiet, others not so.

    Best of luck. I'm sure crazier things than hedgehogs have been smuggled into halls before

    By the way, does the title of the thread remind anyone else of the Animal Ark series?
    :eek: YES! Badger in the Basement etc.
    Great series :p:

    I'm sure you could get a lidded pen which could slip under the bed. Hedgehogs like the dark anyway. I'd go and see what the situation is like, think that sounds like a good plan. Also if it's very noisy it might be a bit cruel as hedgehogs are easily startled.

    Also I had a friend in first year in halls who had a lizard. So, you're not the only one to do this sort of thing....

    What.Him. So cute!!

    Cleaners might not come into your rooms - they didn't in my halls so you might want to check that first. Although, we used to have room inspections every term to make sure they were safe ie. no candles, halogen lamps etc. so that could potentially be a problem.

    Maybe give it a few weeks to see if you think it'd be suitable. S/he might not like the noisy atmosphere etc so it wouldn't be fair.

    I thought it was illegal to keep a hedgehog as a pet?

    At least that's what everyone told me when I set my heart on one..

    I know that there is one about a toutoise but I have a similar problem.
    I am going to Uni next September/October and will be staying in halls. I have to take my Hedgehog with me.

    He is a year old now and they tend to live about 3 years.
    He sleeps all day and runs on a wheel at night.

    Currently he living in a pen on my bedroom floor.

    How can I hide him at uni?

    Thanks

    It's technically against the law to have a (wild) pet European Hedgehog :fyi:

    European hedgehogs are partially protected in the U.K. Trapping them requires permission from the proper authorities.
