Solicitation & Commercial Activities

Due to a variety of local, state and University guidelines, students may not use their university residence for the purpose of running a business.

Most forms of solicitation are prohibited in University Residences and unauthorized solicitation should be immediately reported to staff. Prohibited forms of solicitation include making contact with residents for the purpose of:

  • Promoting an activity or event
  • Promoting or endorsing an idea or person, such as a political candidate, recycling, or religious belief
  • Recruiting for a club or organization
  • Selling something, such as an object, product or ticket to an activity or event, even for the purpose of fund-raising

Permitted forms of solicitation are made available to University Residences groups (RHA, Residential Programming Boards, and NRHH) and staff to promote University Residences-related activities and programs. Western Washington University students, organizations and clubs who would like permission to post notices/information should contact University Residences at (360) 650-2960 or
