Tent Policy

Revised June 2017

  • Installation of tents in the yards of woodframe houses will not be approved. Physical Plant will not help to secure the tents or anything in them (rented plates, chairs, etc.). In the past, people have had these items stolen and the university will not take any responsibility. Tents have been prone to damage lawns and irrigation systems.

  • A small popup tent (under 20’x20’), may be put up at a student's own risk without a permit from the fire marshal.  However, physical Plant will not facilitate and the student will be responsible for paying for any resulting damages.

  • Students may not install any pop up tenting anywhere on campus that is not in a woodframe back yard. For example, tents cannot be put up on the lawns around Fauver Apartments, near the residence halls, etc.

  • Tents 20x20 and over must be pre-approved by Fire Safety and Grounds at least 10 business days prior to the event.
