Before animals can be housed on campus, both a protocol and the housing facility must first be approved by the IACUC.

The following requirements apply to areas where animals are housed or used for teaching or research:

  • Contact information (including home phone numbers) for Principal Investigators shall be posted.
  • Personnel may not eat, drink, use tobacco products, or apply cosmetics in such areas. Food meant for human consumption may not be stored in animal holding areas.
  • All aisles, exits, fire extinguishers, eyewashes, and other emergency equipment shall remain unobstructed.
