Relevant Excerpt

Recognized University organizations and full or part‐time students who wish to schedule a demonstration, rally, protest or equivalent activity, may request the space through the Dean of Students Office on their respective campus and the appropriate venue manager. Any such request must be made no less than four business days in advance of the activity. The required Demonstration Registration Form can be accessed and completed in OrgSync.

Demonstrations may be held at locations on Campus with the approval of the Dean of Students Office on their respective campus on a first‐come, first‐served basis, based on availability after an assessment that such demonstrations will not otherwise interfere with scheduled University use, or fail to comply with the guidelines applicable to all demonstrations. Once the required form is completed and submitted in a timely manner, it will be reviewed by the Dean of Students Office and appropriate representatives of the proposed venue, UMPD and the Vice President for Student Affairs office. No demonstration can take place without final approval from the Dean of Students Office.
