39. Soliciting on Campus
39.1 The term “solicit” is defined as the taking of orders, sales, rentals or donations. Any solicitation on campus must have the approval of the University Concessions Committee, through the Department of Student Activities, 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 is prohibited in the residence halls and University Apartments. Information about facility and space usage can be addressed by University Center & Special Events staff.
39.2 No concessions permit is required if a recognized student organization or University organization (including residence halls) sells certain selected items to its members ONLY.
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 organizations seeking to conduct charity drives must obtain concessions permits at the Department of Student Activities.
39.4 Only recognized campus organizations, students, staff 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, U.S. Mail, or telecommunications.
