Regardless of whether the college allows a hedgehog or not - I recommend against it. In fact, that's how I got my hedgie - I rescued him from a college dorm. The poor guy was MISERABLE! Too much noise, light, and activity. My son saw how the hog was being treated and talked the owner out of him. It took me 6 months to get the little guy to calm down and trust anyone. Unless you live in a separate apartment where you can provide a suitable environment, hedgehogs and college don't really go together.
