No chalking is allowed on the following:
- University buildings
- Courtyard areas
- Vertical surfaces
- Arch of bridge walkways
- Lakeshore path
- Underneath any overhang
1) You can only use a water-based chalk/water soluble chalk. Oil-based aerosol chalk will not come off over time of its own accord, nor through daily exposure to the elements; water-based will. Water-based chalk rubs off or smears when you wipe your finger over it.
2) You can only apply the water-based chalk on sidewalks. Marking on a vertical surface requires physical effort to remove it; it will not come off on its own. This means that a Physical Plant employee must spend time and materials to remove it. Student organizations may be fined if Physical Plant has to remove any chalking on vertical surfaces or if water-based chalk was not used.
3) Chalk is only allowed on University sidewalks and University streets.
