J4-100 The Commons

The Commons, a circular gathering area and the adjacent hillside, is located between Madison Unions and Gibbons Hall. This area is designated as a student activity space and is used for a variety of cultural, educational, recreational and organizational programs of interest to the general campus. Due to the high amount of pedestrian traffic through the area and its proximity to academic and service facilities, special consideration and approval are required for use of the space.

J4-102 All activity policies including “Facility Reservations,” “Guest Speakers” and the “Right of Expression” apply to The Commons.

J4-103 In case of inclement weather, use of university equipment will be denied.
