BYU-I Family housing does not allow pets of any kind to reside in their housing complexes. The only exception is Emotional Support Animals and Service animals, which don't always get approved.

As someone who has grown up with animals in my life, I know they joy they bring and the responsibility they teach. I remember asking my parents for a pet for the longest time. As an independent adult, I should have the option of owning a pet. That should be my choice. Not the choice of the housing complex that I live in. There are very few pet-friendly housing complexes around BYU-Idaho. Which make it impossible to try and find a place to live when you have pets. And to the people that don't find pet-friendly housing? Well they have to get rid of their pets, no questions asked. 

It is absurd for FAMILY housing to not allow pets of any kind because there are so many young families who don’t want kids yet but still want a companion. Pets are part of our families. Can you really call it family housing if you deny them?
