Distribution of Printed Materials

Distribution of printed materials, e.g., newspapers, handbills, pamphlets, literature, etc., is permitted on campus as long as there is no interference with the normal operation of the university and with the following restrictions:

  1. Non-members of the university community may not make use of university buildings or grounds for any distribution purposes unless registered with the Office of Campus Life in advance. In addition, distribution of printed materials in university-owned buildings or grounds by Greek organizations, residence halls, individual students and registered student organizations may occur only if the materials are stamped in advance by the Office of Campus Life.
  2. In no case may any distribution include materials which are libelous, obscene, or violate or encourage the violation of federal, state, or local laws. Individuals distributing printed material deemed contrary to federal, state, or local laws do so on their own responsibility and will subject themselves to arrest and prosecution by the public authorities, and in addition, a student will subject himself or herself to disciplinary action.
  3. Placing printed material on vehicles is prohibited.
  4. Printed materials must have the name of the individual or group clearly indicated on the printed material.
  5. Individuals from off-campus desiring to sell commercial newspapers shall contact the associate vice chancellor for facilities and services or designee for information and general policies.
  6. The distribution of printed material must not disrupt the flow of faculty, staff, or student traffic, or interfere with the rights of others.
  7. Normally the campus is open for the distribution of printed material Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Fridays until 5:00 p.m.
  8. Printed matter may be sold on the campus only in the Donaghey Student Center or mall, in areas designated by the Donaghey Student Center director, and such sale is subject to the limitation that it must not disrupt food services or the free flow of faculty, staff, or student traffic.
