WAC 132H-140-065

Limitations and denial of use.

Bellevue Community College is a state agency and exists to serve the public. However, the college may deny use of its facilities to any individual, group or organization if the requested use would
(1) Interfere or conflict with the college's instructional, student services or support programs;
(2) Interfere with the free flow of pedestrian or vehicular traffic on campus;
(3) Involve illegal activity;
(4) Create a hazard or result in damage to college facilities; or
(5) Create undue stress on college resources (e.g., a request for a major event may be denied if another major event is already scheduled for the same time period, because of demands for parking, security coverage, etc.).
Where college space is used for an authorized function (such as a class or a public or private meeting under approved sponsorship, administrative functions or service related activities), groups must obey or comply with directions of the designated administrative officer or individual in charge of the meeting.
Any individual or group granted permission to use college facilities shall agree in advance to abide by all college rules and regulations. The college reserves the right to deny use of college facilities to any individual or group whose past conduct indicates a likelihood that college rules and regulations will not be obeyed. The college may also deny use to a requesting individual or organization which has used the facilities in the past and has damaged college property, left college buildings and grounds in excessive disorder, or failed to cooperate with college staff concerning use of the facilities.
No person or group may use or enter onto college grounds or facilities having in their possession firearms or other dangerous weapons, even if licensed to do so, except commissioned police officers as prescribed by law.
College facilities may be used for purposes of political campaigning by or for candidates who have filed for public office, directed to members of the public, only when the full rental cost of the facility is paid. Use of state funds to pay for facility rental costs for political campaigns is prohibited.
If at any time actual use of college facilities by an individual or group constitutes an unreasonable disruption of the normal operation of the college, such use shall immediately terminate, all persons engaged in such use shall immediately vacate the premises, and leave the college property upon command of the appropriate college official.
Advertising or promotional materials for any event being held in a college facility must follow the same procedure as applies to students outlined in WAC 132H-120-050.
Use of audio amplifying equipment is permitted only in locations and at times that will not interfere with the normal conduct of college affairs.
BCC facilities may not be used for private or commercial purposes unless such activities clearly serve the educational mission of the college, are either sponsored by an appropriate college unit or conducted by contractual agreement with the college. Commercial uses may also be made as noted in WAC 132H-133-050.
Alcoholic beverages will not be served without the approval of the president or his/her designee. It shall be the responsibility of the event sponsor to obtain all necessary licenses from the Washington state liquor control board and adhere to their regulations, and those of Bellevue Community College.
