Use of amplifiers, bullhorns, musical instruments and other mechanisms of communication beyond that of the natural voice are permitted only after 5 p.m. weekdays or on the weekends and only if the sound does not exceed 75 decibels. Student organizations wishing to include amplified sound at an event must have the event registered and approved with the Office of Student Development, AMU, Room 121, at least two weeks before the date of the event. All other groups who wish to use amplified sound should contact the AMU, Room 245, for approval. For student organizations and other groups, an application for a noise variance must be submitted to the associate director of event management, AMU, Room 245, three weeks before the event.
This policy exists to prevent the disruption of the normal conduct of work in academic, service and administration facilities. If conditions warrant, exceptions to the basic policy may be granted by the Office of Student Development in consultation with AMU Event Management.
