This may sound like a silly question, but I would really like to have a pet (a rat) in my room. Is it possible?

Yes, it is absolutely possible to find a rat in your room to be your pet

Most uni halls have rules saying no pets, but it's a case of whether you get caught or not really :p:

Here he is taking a jog in the park:

Most likely you won't be able to. But what they don't know can't hurt them right? :mmm:

in university hall, you have a room inspection once a term.
you usually get a few days notice too.
so, the night before, move your pet to a friend in another block

Read your tenancy agreement. It should say in the rules of your tenancy agreement whether you're allowed to have pets or not, but I'm widely going to guess the answer is probably no :/

I know someone who had goldfish. They were allowed goldfish because they are kept contained and are easy to look after.

It's probably best to phone the uni and ask rather than just risk it.

I'd be very surprised if you'd be allowed to keep any pet apart from something which is self-contained like goldfish etc. I just can't see it being practical keeping them in a small room and there might be objections from other people in your halls especially if they cause a nuisance.

Snap! I never had them as a kid, so I decided the best way to rebel was to get sea monkeys for University. I hope the food isn't too expensive... and I hope they're ok with not being fed much... I forget to feed myself, let alone another living thing!

If the seamonkeys are anything like this, then I can't see there being a problem...

I had sea monkeys and I forgot to feed them for 3 months, and they still lived a long and happy life! The tank went a bit gross though...! I would love to take my dogs, but clearly that is very impractical, so I'll just have to wait until I graduate!

Strictly speaking, pets aren't allowed. But you'll soon find out that you can get away with lots of things if you're careful.
