Petitioning and distributing literature is not permitted inside any Student Unions and Centers buildings except in conjunction with the use of meeting rooms as permitted by SSM 801-02, "Reserving and Using Student Unions and Centers Facilities."

To permit the free flow of traffic in and around Student Unions and Centers buildings, those distributing authorized material are required to remain in assigned locations and may not circulate through other areas.

Contact individual locations for details. No materials of any kind may be posted or set on walls, windows, doors, tables, restroom stalls, or any other unauthorized portion of the Student Unions and Centers buildings.

Printed material is accepted based on availability of space on a first-come first-serve basis and must be for university-sponsored events, university department services, or university affiliated business partners.

Individuals and groups posting or distributing approved material must follow directions from university staff regarding interpretation and compliance with petitioning, distributing, and posting policies.
