I have really bad anxiety and depression and I am seriously considering getting a therapy cat to help cope and calm myself down. However the one big problem with this is that Im going to uni in the summer of 2019. Would I be allowed a therapy cat in student accommodation? I found it hard to find any information on this, I know I guide dog would be allowed but I feel like that is a different situation.
Dose anyone have any information about this? Or know anyone who was in a similar situation?

Unfortunately it's very unlikely. Therapy pets are not generally recognised in the UK, and as there is no regulation of them, it would be very easy for anyone to say that their pet was a therapy animal.

You also need to consider the quality of life of the pet. Even larger uni rooms in halls are too small to keep a cat confined to, and other flatmates may not be keen on having a cat around in communal areas.

Having a cat in halls is totally unrealistic. It wouldn't work.
