(1) College facilities may be rented by noncollege groups in accordance with the college's facilities use policy. Noncollege groups may otherwise use college facilities in accordance with the Seattle Colleges' rules.
(2) The college designates its grounds and outdoor spaces as the public forum area(s) for use by noncollege groups for first amendment activities on campus. Nothing in these rules prohibits noncollege groups from engaging in first amendment activities at open public meetings, subject to the requirements of RCW 42.30.050
(3) Noncollege groups at North Seattle College and South Seattle College may use the public forum areas for first amendment activities between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. and those colleges and their campuses are not open to the general public except during these times. Due to Seattle Central College's urban setting, there are no temporal restrictions on first amendment activities at that college except as otherwise provided in these rules.
(4) Before engaging in first amendment activities, all noncollege groups are encouraged to sign in and notify the college of the noncollege group's presence on campus and to acknowledge receipt of these rules and to ensure that there are no scheduling conflicts. This notice does not involve any application or approval process, and therefore, the ability to use designated areas will not be denied unless they are already reserved for use by another group. This notice is intended to provide the college with knowledge of the noncollege group's presence on campus so that the college can notify the appropriate members of its staff whose services might be needed or impacted by the use of the designated area. When signing in, the individual or group are encouraged to provide the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of the individual, group, entity, or organization sponsoring the activity (hereinafter "the sponsoring organization"); and
(b) The name, address, and telephone number of a contact person for the sponsoring organization; and
(c) The date, time, and requested location of the activity; and
(d) The type of sound amplification devices to be used in connection with the activity, if any; and
(e) The estimated number of people expected to participate in the activity.
