39. Soliciting on Campus

(Revised: 2006)


39.1 The term “solicit” is defined as advertising, the taking of orders, sales, donations, proselytizing, campaigning (political or other), collection and distribution of literature. Any solicitation on campus must have the approval of the University Concessions Committee, whether such solicitation is by an officially recognized student organization, university organization, a governmental agency or other. Door-to-door solicitation by outside organizations or companies, however, is prohibited in the residence halls and University Apartments. Concessions guidelines and request forms are available in the University Center Scheduling and Services Office.

39.2 Concessions permits are limited to five days in a 30-day period to provide equal access to all organizations. All solicitation must take place from behind a scheduled table. A full-time student representing the group that obtained the permit must be at the approved location at all times.

39.3 All charity and welfare drives must be sponsored by an officially recognized student organization and are subject to the same guidelines as other solicitations on campus. Student organization charity fund drives also should be registered at the Student Activities Office.

39.4 Only recognized campus organizations, students and instructors are permitted to use university facilities, including computing resources, for publicity and advertising. Non-university affiliated vendors may advertise through use of the Battalion, the telephone or U.S. Mail. Guidelines regulating campus advertising and publicity may be obtained in the University Center Scheduling and Services Offices.
