Relevant Excerpt

All outdoor spaces are available to students for expressive activities subject to the conditions established by this policy and any other reasonable time, place and manner restrictions as might be deemed necessary by the University. Such use of outdoor areas should be scheduled at least 24 hours in advance, if possible, in order to avoid interference with or disruption of ordinary, routine, or previously scheduled activities and to ensure safety and health. University services such as set up, technical assistance, catering and parking may not be available on short notice.

It is not the intent of this policy to censor or otherwise limit free expression. However, assemblies should be peaceable, orderly and comply with University standards of conduct.
