Events that do not require support services described above.: 2 Week Minimum

Tabling in White Plaza by a recognized University department or a registered student organization. If the lawn is reserved, tabling should occur on the other side of the fire lane. Off-campus organizations and individuals are not permitted to table or post displays or banners in White Plaza, although general flyering, including posting in approved areas and handing out flyers in White Plaza is permitted.: No lead time.

Large-scale events or activities outside the normal 12:00 p.m. (noon) to 1:00 p.m. time slot may require additional lead-time in order to arrange logistics and consult with nearby departments regarding impact to their activities.

White Plaza is a designated free speech area reservable by Stanford recognized student organizations and designed for a wide range of activities, in essence a spot for a “marketplace of ideas”. The university welcomes vigorous debate and dialogue in White Plaza but encourages all to approach programs, displays and interactions with a fundamental respect for others.

Only registered University organizations and departments are eligible to display posters in White Plaza. All publicity materials must clearly identify the sponsoring organization and the date of event. Organizations must not monopolize the available space. Violation of any of these policies is cause for automatic removal of any publicity, and the sponsoring organization may be held responsible for costs incurred in removal. Only public kiosks are open for anyone to post.
