Additional requirements for noncollege groups.

(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 as identified in these rules.
(2) The college designates on the campus map 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 may use the public forum areas for First Amendment activities between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m., and for no longer than five hours from beginning to end.
(4) Before engaging in First Amendment activities, all noncollege groups are encouraged to provide notice to and register with campus safety and security no later than forty-eight hours prior to the activity of the noncollege group's presence on campus and to acknowledge receipt of these rules and to ensure that there are not scheduling conflicts. The notice does not involve any application or approval process, and therefore, the ability to use designated public forum 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 public forum area. When registering, the individual or group should provide the following information:
(a) The name, address and telephone number of the individual, group, entity or organization sponsoring the event (hereinafter "the sponsoring organization");
(b) The name, address and telephone number of a contact person for the sponsoring organization;
(c) The date, time and requested location of the activity;
(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.
