Event for 50 or fewer people


Any member of the university community or the public may use unrestricted outdoor areas for non-commercial expressive activities on a first come, first served basis without giving prior notice if additional criteria are met.

Use this guide If the following criteria are met:

  • The event will occur only between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
  • For events held on weekdays before 5:00 p.m., the event will be held at least one hundred feet away from buildings that normally hold classes
  • The activity will not impede walkways or access to buildings or other university facilities
  • No other individual or group has been scheduled or authorized to use the area, or has filed a notice of intent to use that area or an adjacent area
  • The organizers will not use amplification equipment or equipment requiring use of electrical power connections (hand-held megaphones are permitted if used so as to direct the sound away from nearby buildings that normally hold classes)
  • Signs or banners will be carried/attended at all times by one or two participants (unattended displays may not be used without permission)
  • The sponsor of the event takes responsibility for compliance with this policy

Will your event meet these criteria?

    If more than 50 participants are present, or if one or more of the following is true, the activity will be considered a Public Event. Plan a Public Event.
