Specific conditions to be taken into consideration when assigning accommodations:

Request to bring a pet
Pets are not allowed in any dormitory, apartment or house. However, a limited number of cottages (summer only) have been designated as "pet" cottages. Pets are allowed in those cottages with prior approval by the Housing Office. There is a $250 per pet refundable deposit for those approved to have pets in their cottages. Your application will not be processed until you submit a credit card number to the Housing Office:(508) 289-7431 or Applicants are limited to two pets. Should pets damage the cottage or disturb neighbors, the occupants may be asked to vacate the premises immediately and may jeopardize future housing privileges. The presence of pets in "non pet" cottages will result in immediate eviction from the premises. Requests will be considered based on availability of pet-approved cottages.
