University Tabling Protocol

General Tabling Rules:

  • You must have your tabling permit with you at all times when you are tabling.
  • Table spaces are very specific and take into account ADA and fire lane access---tabling may only occur in spots designated for this use.
  • Whenever possible you should table in the spot you reserved. If, on the day of your event, you see another designated tabling spot you would rather have, and it is available, you may relocate to that spot. If the organization or group that originally reserved that location shows up you must move back to your own reserved location.

Off-Campus For Profit Entities:

  • These groups cannot book tabling on campus, but are welcome, with a City of Chico business license, to solicit and promote using City of Chico property surrounding campus (ie. City sidewalks, etc.).  Please make sure not to block ADA or fire access.

Known Non-Profit Organizations, Un-Recognized Student Organizations, Campus Offices, Class Projects and AS Programs:

  • All of these groups must request tabling space through Student Life and Leadership. An appointed representative must come into the office, in-person, to fill out the Tabling Request Form. 
  • These groups must supply all their own equipment for tabling.

SLL Recognized Student Organizations:

  • You must be recognized and visible on OrgSync and an authorized club representative must appear in person at the Student Life and Leadership Office located in BMU 220 at least 24 hours prior to the event to fill out a Tabling and Equipment Request form.
  • You will be able to reserve one week at a time. Spots are assigned in the order that they are requested.  
  • If you are serving food of any kind, please schedule a meeting with a Para Professional prior to your planned tabling date.
  • Reserving Equipment
  • Only Recognized Student Organizations may reserve equipment from Student Life and Leadership.
  • At the point of reservation, discuss your equipment needs with the Customer Service Technician. 
  • Unfortunately, we have a limited supply of equipment and there is no guarantee you will have a table and chair. If you have your own equipment, please plan to use it while you table.
  • Equipment may only be checked-out and checked-in during the designated times.  These are 9:00am to 9:50am and 2:00pm-2:50pm.  
  • You are personally and financially responsible for any damages or loss of the equipment. On the day you check-out the equipment you must have a Student ID or State issued ID card and the tabling permit in order to check-out the equipment.  The Student Life and Leadership will hold your ID until the equipment is returned.
  • If you have additional equipment needs, please schedule a meeting with a Para Professional to plan and reserve additional equipment
  • Failure to abide by Student Life and Leadership policies for tabling and/or equipment check-out and use will result in the following consequence
    • First Infraction: A warning will be issued in person and via-email regarding the infraction.
    • Second Infraction: An official sanction will be e-mailed to the President, Treasurer and Advisor citing the specific violations.
    • Third Infraction: An official sanction will be e-mailed to the President, Treasurer and Advisor citing specific violations. Your organization will not be permitted to check-out and Student Life and Leadership equipment for the rest of the semester.  If the infraction is severe enough your organization will not be permitted to table for the rest of the semester. 
  • Student Life and Leadership reserves the right to suspend tabling and equipment loans at any time.
