I lurve pets and as soon as I get to Uni I will want to get a menagerie, (or maybe a guinea pig or summin...) just wondering about whether that would be allowed?

I've heard of people taking sea monkeys and hamsters to uni, but haven't heard of guinea pigs being taken. (Also, I wouldn't want to because it's unfair on the guinea pig being cooped up in a small cage and enver being allowed to run around )

I guess every uni is different, so maybe check with yours?

They should allow it providing you are responsible. They don't allow cats or dogs.

Fish is a prefered pet.

I'm not sure about birds or insects.

They told me off for having a snake so I left the snake cage open with a note saying "as I can't have the snake and it has no-where else to go, you can have it" in the office of the head of accommodation services.

She never got back to me.

I wouldn't bother getting a pet at uni TBH - it probably won't end well for a variety of reasons, ranging from some unis just not allowing any kind of pets, to pets not having a great time in halls due to the noise and lack of attention they'll often receive. You can always get one once you graduate, or if you move into private accommodation that allows pets.

Don't do it. Someone will eat the poor thing as part of a sick drunken dare.

My mate Kacey told me that her cousin Derrick knows a guy who told him that his flatmate kept a sturgeon living in his bathtub at uni.

I cannot believe that my uni doesn't even allow a fish... That kills me cos I have to leave loads of pets at home and cannot even have a flippin fish.

It might help to work at a shelter near your uni? That is what I will be doing cos I will go through serious withdrawals without pets around!

ahh i was wondering the same thing, because i have a blue tongued skink (2 foot long lizard) and my first choice university doesn't allow pets... i'll email them if i can actually find an email address on their website, haha

it'd be a bummer if i have to get a flat just because i can't have him on campus. there's nothing dangerous, for him or the university.. argh
