Posting, Solicitation, and Distribution of Materials

Posting of printed materials to the University community by students or non-students must comply with established University procedures as to location, time limits, distribution procedures, and removal requirements. Normally, permission to post or distribute an item is granted by the Market Director. Officials of the University may require materials printed in a foreign language to be translated into English prior to approving them.

  1. Failure to adhere to these guidelines will lead to loss of posting or distribution privileges.
  2. Decisions on requests to distribute and/or solicit on University premises will be based on University policies and procedures.
  3. The University reserves the right to restrict, remove, or prohibit posted or distributed materials.

Non-Commercial Distribution

Students may not distribute printed materials (e.g., brochures, pamphlets, newspapers, tabloids, flyers, or petitions) or make other distributions of materials through e-mail to members of the University community unless they have prior written approval from the Campus Director.

When no special facilities or equipment (e.g., room space, audiovisual equipment, copy machine, maintenance setup services, or use of University e-mail) are requested by students, then the following apply:

  1. Distribution of approved printed material may be made in student lounges and on authorized bulletin boards.
  2. Distribution must be consistent with all student conduct guidelines.
  3. Any material remaining after distribution must be properly discarded.
