|You might want to check with the college's disability services office, sometimes, from what I have read on the S&TD forum here, they require you to 'register' that you have the SD on campus. Even though most colleges are under federal law from receiving federal funding, I believe most still want to know that you indeed need/have the SD. Generally they address each student on a case by case basis.
Google things like "Dogster college service dog" and see what others have posted in the past on Dogster S&TD, I bet there will be lots of information.
If it seems to just be an issue with that particular staff at that building, and not all over campus, you might want to also tell the Disability services, so they can politely update and retrain their staff on procedures/ etiquette for SD handlers.
This is why I'm glad I'm currently a distance student, though I read my college's policy, which is more detailed that the ADA, a little more.. restrictive, though nothing too far fetched. Look up your own school's rules about SDs for the same details.
Good luck and best wishes on your finals.
