Relevant Excerpt

GROUNDS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC: Between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and midnight, paved pedestrian walkways and lawns on University property are generally open to the public, except those:
1. Within areas reserved for classes, public performances, organized activities, or special events;
2. On vehicular driveways, streets and parking lots; or
3. On and adjacent to public entrances to the hospital and outpatient clinics, except as provided for in the specific regulations governing the Center for the Health Sciences area. (See Appendix 1-A)


On University grounds generally open to the public (as defined in these regulations), individuals, Authorized Student Governments, and Registered Campus Organizations may assemble and engage in discussion or non-amplified speech, including the solicitation of signatures on non-commercial petitions, provided that such activity does not disrupt the orderly operation of the campus, or submit individuals to practices that would make them involuntary audiences or place them in reasonable fear, as determined by the University, for their personal safety.
