Nemec Hall

Located across from Smith Hall and next to Hatter Hall, Nemec hall serves as home to 150 co-ed new and returning students in shared-occupancy and single-occupancy rooms with community-style bathrooms. Built in 1966 and renovated in 2000, Nemec Hall is made up of five individual pods where students live (Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Epsilon) and one central pod that features a full kitchen and laundry room. The entire building is pet friendly, and the Beta pod is home to the Second-Year Experience Living-Learning Community. Each floor of the five pods shares a common room for students to hang out, study and relax. Nemec Hall has a resident assistant (R.A.) in every pod that helps students by providing opportunities to develop deep and meaningful relationships not just within their pod, their roommates, but with members of the entire building. Nemec Hall also houses the full-time live-in residential life coordinator (R.L.C.)'s office in the central pod.

Stetson University is unique in allowing residents of a designated area to live with their pets. The future of the pet privilege rests on the successful administration of the policy and the willingness of students to abide by, and enforce, the policy. The opportunity to bring a pet to campus is a privilege, not a right.

What is a pet?

The Department of Housing and Residential Life defines "acceptable campus pets" to include: fish, rabbits, hamsters, gerbils, chinchillas, guinea pigs, rats, mice, cats and dogs of certain breeds and sizes. Dogs may not exceed fifty pounds in weight when fully grown. Pit bulls, Rottweilers, chows, Akitas and wolf breeds, or any mix containing these, or any dog that displays aggressive behavior, are not considered an acceptable pet and are not allowed on campus at any time. Any cat or dog living on campus has to be at least one year old and has to have lived with the student's family for at least one year prior to living on campus. The acquisition of any dog or cat, purchased, fostered or stray, while a student at Stetson University is prohibited in our pet-friendly housing areas. Other types of pets may be approved on a case-by-case basis by the Department of Housing and Residential Life. Service animals that are being trained are not considered pets and owners should communicate with their residential life coordinator regarding their presence in the community.

How many pets can I have?

One pet is permitted per bedroom in the designated pet-friendly housing areas. Nemec Hall residents may have one pet per room and Stetson Cove residents may have one pet per resident. Residents found with more than the approved number of pets will be charged a $150 fine, will be asked to remove the non-approved pet immediately and will be referred to the Office of Community Standards. Pregnant pets will not be approved to live on campus. We encourage that you make sure this does not happen while the pet is living on campus. Should a pet become pregnant the mother and the litter will not be permitted to stay on campus.

How do I apply to bring a pet to campus?

Once a student has selected into a pet-friendly housing option - Nemec Hall, Stetson Cove and University Village Apartments (beginning fall 2013), the student will be contacted to complete the pet housing application in order to gain approval to bring their pet to campus.
