In an effort to ensure safety and to promote an environment conducive to study, advance reservation is required for expressive activity that is expected to have more than twenty-five (25) participants; and strongly encouraged for expressive activity expected to have twenty-five (25) or fewer participants.

Any individual or group, either required by this section to make an advance reservation, or desiring to make an advance reservation, may reserve an outdoor location for the use of the group/organization by completing the Reservation Request Form and submitting it to the Office of the Assistant Vice President for Public Safety and Emergency Management (Bole Annex), at least 72 hours in advance of the expressive activity. On the main Glassboro Campus, it is recommended that a group/organization request to reserve either Bunce Green or the Student Center back patio. A group/organization may reserve only one location for each day, and cannot reserve the same location for more than one day in each calendar week. Smaller groups (less than 25) and individuals are requested to voluntarily use the suggested areas, but may use any outdoor area open to the public that can safely be used so long as noise levels do not conflict with the conduct of University business and crowds do not impede egress and ingress to University facilities.
