Relevant excerpt

40.40 On University grounds open to the public generally, as may be described in campus regulations, all persons may exercise the constitutionally protected rights of free expression, speech, assembly, and worship (including the distribution or sale of noncommercial literature incidental to the exercise of these freedoms). Such activities shall not interfere with the orderly operation of the campus and must be conducted in accordance with campus time, place, and manner regulations.

40.41 For the purpose of these regulations, “grounds open to the public generally” are defined as the outdoor areas of the campus (e.g., lawns, patios, plazas) that are at least 10 feet from the entrances/exits of campus buildings and parking lots, and that are also a safe distance from the curbing of campus roads. Outdoor recreational areas (e.g., playing fields, courts, swimming pools) and grounds adjacent to designated “private residences” (e.g., Faculty/Staff Housing, residences of the chancellor and college provosts) are excluded from this definition.
