Chalking Policy

Chalking is allowed on the River Campus sidewalks to promote University-affiliated activities or events.

Chalking is prohibited on the following surfaces:

  • Any vertical surfaces, including walls, sides of buildings/stairways, and stairs
  • Under any awning or other structure that could potentially obstruct rain from washing the chalk away (e.g., the area under the awning at Susan B. Anthony Halls, balconies, etc.)
  • Any brick surfaces, horizontal or vertical, including pavers, stairs, and the Wilson Commons porch
  • Any street surface (e.g., Intercampus Drive, Wilson Boulevard, etc.)

Spray chalk is not allowed to be used on any surface. Chalking may be removed at any time based at the discretion of the grounds crew and in accordance with their cleaning schedule. 

Students are encouraged to ensure that the content of chalking adheres to the Meliora Vision & Values. View the Meliora Vision & Values.

Student organizations should talk to their primary advisor if they have any questions about this policy.
