7 Things to Consider before Taking your ESA to your Dorm
Thinking to take your emotional support animal to your dorm? Think again. Emotional support animal is more than a pet and we know that you need your animal for mental and emotional support but, taking it everywhere may not be a good option. Young adults suffering from some form of emotional or mental disability often try to take the or emotional support animal with them to the dorm room. Dorm rooms a red different than houses and have a different environment that may not be suitable for an animal.
My biggest challenge...
Besides a valid ESA letter for housing, there are some other things that you need to consider before taking your animal to the dorm.
Before bringing an animal to your dorm, consider the following things.
1.Know about the Requirements of your College
Does your College or university allow pets into the or premises? This is the very first thing that you must find out and consider. While there are many pet friendly colleges and universities that do allow pets and emotional support animals into the or dorms, there are many that do not like the idea.
I want to invest in...
Before doing anything, contact the student support body of your college and talk to them about your issue and need for an ESA. In colleges, usually, they have a separate union for students with disabilities, find out of your college also has one and if you are allowed to bring your pup or kitty along.
Once you get a green signal from your college's authorities, it is time to think about the Type of emotional support animal that you'd like to live with. There are no hard and fast rules about the kind of animal that you can get as your ESA, there are some things that you must consider.
I can be most helpful at...
First, you will need to ask the authorities about the kind of animal that you could bring and about the details that they want to see in your emotional support dog letter.
Do it before applying for the letter so that you can guide your therapist about the details that he needs to put into the letter.
3. Consider your Lifestyle
Student life is very different than the usual lifestyle. Students have a lot of things going on in their lives and this may leave limited time to give to your animal.

4. Check with your Roommates
Is your roommate okay with it? Some people have animal related allergies because of which they could not stand an animal near it. Ask your roommate, or roommates, before bringing the animal if they are alright with it. If you are lucky, your roommates and dorm fellows Willie the idea and would even volunteer to pet sit in case you're haven't classes. You can find an emotional support animal letter sample online. The sample will help you understand what is an ESA letter.

Waste Disposal Method
Probably the biggest question when moving into the dorm with an ESA, how will you manage the waste disposal? Dogs need regular morning and evening walks to relieve themselves and if you have a puppy, then these walks will be more frequent. Will you be able to take your dog out or clean the litterbox of your cat regularly? Answer the question carefully. ESA letter online serves as a legal permit that allows people who suffer from mental or physical disabilities to live in with their emotional support animals.
