Many schools around the country actually allow leeway on what pets to have in college. Some schools are super strict and do not allow any pets, while others have no rules about them at all. I have a few different friends from different states that have told me about the best pets to have in college. First, start with a house plant. If that doesn’t die then you can consider getting a pet!
1. Guinea Pig
One of the different types of pets to have in college are guinea pigs. Guinea pigs are basically like giant hamsters. Although they need a bigger cage, they are great first pets. However, they can live from around 5-10 years, so make sure that wherever you go outside of college, you are allowed to have pets.
