Facility Use and Solicitation Policy for Registered Student Organizations and Individual OU Students

Category: Protest and Demonstration Policies School: University of Oklahoma Statement Rating: Green Last updated: February 13, 2018

Relevant excerpt

There are several areas located on the University campus that are open to RSOs/individual students for free speech, protests, leafleting, etc. and require no reservation or notice (unless such use also includes the placement of tables, booths, structures, large displays, vehicles, sound, audio or PA systems, or when assistance is needed from the University, in which case reservations as noted in Paragraph B below are required). Although not required, Student Affairs requests that RSOs/individual students notify the University of the use of such locations to ensure the space can accommodate such request, to ensure that no disturbance of the University’s educational mission occurs, to ensure it is not in conflict with other prior requests for the area and so that the University can assist in reserving the requested location. Notifications may be made by calling Student Life: 405-325-4415 or by email addressed to: rso@ou.edu

The public areas for use by RSOs/individual students include all public sidewalks, and the following areas:
