Non-affiliates' ability to speak and communicate on campus adds to the vibrant exchange of ideas at the University. At the same time, reasonable content-neutral regulations regarding the time, place, and manner of such speech help preserve University property for the functions for which it is dedicated.

A. No non-affiliate shall carry, transport or use signs, posters, placards or banners exceeding thirty inches (30") by thirty inches (30") in size, in or on any University property unless prior written permission has been obtained from Designated University Official.

1. The size of the handles or supports for such signs, posters, placards, or banners shall be limited to one-fourth inch (1/4") in thickness by three-fourths inch (3/4") in width and shall extend no more than eighteen inches (18") beyond a single exterior edge of such signs, posters, placards or banners.

2. All such handles or supports shall be made of wood without exception.

B. No non-affiliate shall, on University property, without authorization from the Designated University Official: in any way affix, fasten, or attach to the premises any signs, posters, placards or banners; nor shall they be self-supporting and placed for display; nor leaned against any wall, partition or other portion of University property.

C. No non-affiliate shall carry signs, posters, placards or banners in a way that obstructs or interferes with the normal movement of any vehicular traffic or pedestrian movement on University property.

D. No non-affiliate shall post or affix, or cause to be posted or affixed, on any University property any handbill, circular, booklet, card, pamphlet, sheet or written or printed notice except in such locations and in the time and manner explicitly established by the University for such purpose, without prior authorization of the Designated University Official.

E. No non-affiliate shall distribute any written or printed matter in violation of established campus directives regarding time, place and manner.

F. No non-affiliate shall erect any structure or display, or bring a structure or display on to University property without prior written authorization from the Designated University Official. For purposes of this paragraph, "structure or display" means any object larger than two feet in any dimension that is intended to be placed or displayed in a public area, or is left unattended in a public area. It does not include objects entirely supported or carried by a single person that do not extend more than one foot from that person (e.g., a signboard supported over someone's shoulders).

G. Where the Designated University Official is permitted to authorize exceptions to the regulations set forth in this section, the criteria for such authorization shall be content-neutral and specified in advance.
