    The boys downstairs from me had goldfish - they came to stay with us when they got inspected

    If it's something small in a cage in your bedroom you'd probably be ok. As long as you're in a hall where bedrooms don't get cleaned...

    My friend has a rabbit and just takes it to her friends when there's an inspection,so potentially you could get away with it.

    A few of my friends had stick insects.

    Someone had a hamster, but i think it was kept hidden from cleaners etc.

    They're not allowed anywhere that i know of so its prob easier to just wait 'till second year really. Some people find it hard enough to look after themselves let alone a pet aswell during freshers.

    If it's a hamster or fish or something you'd probably get away with it. I wouldn't bother trying to take anything else. Or just wait until you move out.

    A kitten could be a problem...... I have a registered assistance dog, and I've had to jump through a few hoops. If you have another student in your flat/section thats allergic, and you havent asked first, youre inviting trouble. On the other hand, if you ask special permission who knows? But ask yourself this first. Student life can be hectic. Going out and coming in at all different hours.

    Animals need routine, and especially young animals -kittens,puppies etc need lots of attention. Also can you afford to feed,vaccinate,sterilise,deworm and then also cover vet bills in an emergency. Also halls can be noisy and disruptive to their emotional wellbeing

    I have thought of leaving my dog at home, because the reduction in living space, combined with the attention she attracts, can stress her out terribly, and she's trained to remain calm.

    having had all kinds of pets, I would recommend a hamster/gerbil, theyre quiet, dont disturb anyone are easy to look after and deffo give back the love you give.

    Wait till youre a year or two down and living in private accomodation, then get your kitten. He'll thank you for it.

    Poor thing. I would show it off to everyone who came to visit.

    My friend kept fish and the cleaners didn't mind. Oh, and Byron had a bear, so maybe worth a try?

    I couldn't imagine bringing a kitten to uni...

    It would be quite nice actually if you were doing a house share and the little kitty could go out for a wee wee.
