Tabling /Marketing Policy
Leo O’Donovan Dining Hall
Effective: This policy is in effect as of September 1, 2009.
Intent: The intent of this policy is to ensure that all tabling/marketing and alike, are reviewed and
approved to protect Leo O’Donovan Dining Hall from efforts that may conflict with the general
student population, the University and maintain the integrity of the Dining Hall.
This policy is also designed to help student organizations employ a variety of marketing methods
to best promote events and initiatives in a fair and consistent manner.
Policy: Students, groups and organizations tabling/marketing inside, or within a 20 foot radius outside of
Leo O’Donovan Dining Hall, must have access to benefits through an advisory board or
department with the University. Inherent in submitting an application is an agreement to abide
by all relevant University policies including but not limited to the Speech and Expression policy,
Amplified Sound policy and others. Requests must be made at least two weeks in advance, or may
be declined automatically.
Tabling (sitting/standing by a table) or verbally campaigning inside Leo O’Donovan Dining Hall
is prohibited unless the intent is directly related to a Georgetown Dining or Auxiliary Services
initiative; Georgetown Dining reserves the right to confirm or deny a request. Tabling outside
within 20 feet of Leo O’Donovan Dining Hall must be requested by following the approval process
