    Not in any campus that I know about. Remember that where you live will usually have someone next door, or even in the same room next year, who might be allergic.

    You're not allowed, but in every campus I've visited, I've noticed that several students keep animals such as hamsters, gerbils, mice and rats. At Salford university, my friends sister kept two pet mice, in halls in Cardiff some girls had a hamster as did some girls in Swansea.

    I think it's just a matter of keeping them out of sight whenever there's an inspection.

    oh right cool!

    so, are the inspections usually random?

    and how do they get the bedding and food in?! I'm sure someone would know if you walked in with a bag of 'Extra Soft Hamster Bedding' in your hand

    EDIT: ill ask my roommates if they are allergic first!

    I wouldn't say it'd be a good idea to be honest. Student accommodation gets pretty messy and you might do something stupid if you came back drunk or something Leave the hamster at home where it can sleep without noisy students around.

    And you'll be out most of the time, or won't be able to afford food for it, or it will eat your lecture notes, or you won't have time to clean it out...

    Lecturer: Why didn't you hand in your assignment on time?
    Student: My hamster ate it.

    Just don't do a Chris Smith and let it climb inside your ass
