Relevant Excerpt

2.4  “Non-Commercial Written Information” means any hand distribution of leaflets, brochures flyers, pamphlets, petitions, voter registrations, or other written materials designed for informational and not commercial purposes.  This definition does not include the dissemination of information for purposes of the University’s administrative, academic, research, or extension activities.


4.3  Distribution of Non-Commercial Written Information

4.3.1 Subject to the provisions below, University Units, Student Groups, Students, and Non-University Groups and individuals may distribute non-commercial written information without reserving space in any outdoor area of campus and the common areas of the Talley Student Union and the Witherspoon Student Center, the use of which is not otherwise restricted, reserved, or scheduled.  Unsponsored Non-University Groups of less than ten (10) individuals may distribute non-commercial written materials without reserving space.  Unsponsored Non-University Groups of ten (10) or more individuals must reserve space before conducting these activities in accordance with Section 5.

4.3.2 Although not required, to further the effectiveness of the use, these groups and individuals are encouraged to reserve space to distribute non-commercial written information. Advance reservation enables the university to help ensure that the activity does not conflict with a reserved or scheduled use, takes place in a constructive and effective manner, and to assist the groups and individuals in seeing that the activity does not disrupt the university’s educational activities and essential processes.
