The use of chalk to create signs is permitted only on sidewalks. Permanent markers, paint, or spray chalk are prohibited. Chalking may not be done under entrance canopies or under overpasses where rain cannot naturally wash away the chalk. Chalking is also not allowed on any vertical surfaces found on buildings, columns, outside or inside walls or windows, trees, retaining walls or steps. The exception being the tunnel under Towers Residential Suites where painted with black chalk paint.
Flyers, posters and other physical advertisements
Certain buildings on campus have specific areas for the display of leaflets and posters or other publicity material. Posts can be made on any open bulletin board on campus that does not have a reserved sign on it.
Posting material on a university door, window, inside wall or any building exterior surface, will be in violation of this policy and the reported violators may be subject to disciplinary action through the proper university channels. Furthermore, any student organization or student found defacing university property will be subject to charges and sanctions under the Student Code of Conduct. Likewise, individual persons found despoiling the campus may be subject to disciplinary/legal action.

4.7 Outdoor distribution or sale of literature shall take place only by hand in areas more than 15 feet from an entrance to any building. Literature shall not be left unattended. Distributors or sellers of literature shall not create undue traffic congestion and shall not set up tables or other furniture except on paved walks or plazas at locations where traffic will not be hindered.
5.1 Buildings on the campus are dedicated to particular University functions of teaching, research, service, and administrative support; they are not public forums. No distribution or sales of literature, food, goods, or services is permitted on campus except as expressly provided in this university policy.
