  • Two forms of ID are required to purchase alcohol: one for Union membership and one for proof of age. Alcoholic beverages in the possession of minors will be confiscated.
  • Firearms and other weapons are prohibited on the Terrace and elsewhere at the Memorial Union.
  • With the exception of service dogs, pets are not allowed on the Terrace or inside the Memorial Union.
  • No bikes (please use the bike racks!), roller blades, skateboards, Frisbees® and other flying discs, or ball play.
  • No soliciting.
  • No carry-in alcohol or other beverages.

  • No carry-in food (personal bag lunches are OK).

  • No smoking (except in designated areas).

  • No commercial photography (without permission).

  • Plastic cups can be recycled — please dispose of them in the appropriate receptacles.

  • Please don’t feed the ducks, seagulls and other wildlife. It degrades the water and endangers swimmers, boaters and windsurfers.
