Relevant Excerpt

No outdoor assembly, vigil, or outdoor event may be conducted within 200 feet of a childcare playground or facility, or within 50 feet of any building. 


The University encourages contact with the University Reservations Office in the Elliott University Center, 336.334.5378, to secure space, equipment, utilities, or support for free speech activities. Nothing in this document, however, should be interpreted as limiting the right of expression as long as the expressive activities or related conduct do not violate any other applicable university policies. ... Prior to an outdoor assembly reasonably expected to include a large crowd (more than 150 persons), or the potential for violence, the event organizers need to notify the University Reservations Office in the Elliott University Center, 336.334.5378, so the University may institute any necessary safety measures.
