Decoration, Sound & Vandalism

There are restrictions on the use of amplified sound for indoor and outdoor events. Amplified sound is not allowed in small meeting rooms or classrooms because it can disrupt other events. Special arrangements may be requested in advance with the event coordinator. Signage may NOT be posted on the walls, doors or woodwork in the Perelman Quadrangle or the VPUL Performing Arts Facilities, but easels may be obtained to post signs pertaining to an event taking place in that building. Tacks, nails, and scotch or masking tape may not be used on building surfaces, but sticky tack may be used to hang decorations. Helium balloons must be secured and weighted. Decorations must also be removed at the conclusion of the event.

In addition, the Perelman Quadrangle and VPUL Performing Arts Facilities reserves the right to request adjustments to any amplified sound level in an effort to accommodate other events that may be occurring at the same time.

Amplified music is not permitted on College Green before 5:00p.m.on weekdays. At all other times amplified music on College Green must be kept below 85 decibels.

Notices (flyers, posters, etc.) may not be posted on walls, doors, or woodwork. Materials posted on building surfaces will be removed and disposed of. Easels may be obtained from the Perelman Quadrangle and VPUL Performing Arts Facilities for posting notices pertaining to events taking place in the building(s).

Any organization that hangs decorations without permission or fails to remove decorations at the conclusion of their event will receive a written warning and will be charged for the housekeeping time necessary to remove the decorations.

Perelman Quadrangle makes every effort to keep the buildings in good condition. Any organization that damages the facilities, its furnishings and/or equipment will be held financially responsible and may lose reservation privileges.
