35.1 DEFINITIONS.

35.2 GENERAL POLICY ON USE OF UNIVERSITY FACILITIES.
University facilities are dedicated to primary uses within the institution. Such primary uses, however, do not require that University facilities be exclusively reserved for those uses, and it is therefore University policy to make University facilities available for other uses which are consistent with the University's mission as a public institution of higher education.

35.3 APPLICATION AND APPROVAL.
(Amended 10/04; 6/07)

Application for proposed non-primary uses of University facilities should be made to the following offices:

Decisions regarding scheduling, space allocation, rates, facilities use, application deadlines, and all other matters relating to proposed uses of University facilities by non-primary users shall be made by the office to which application for use is made. Application for a proposed non-primary use that involves multiple University facilities may be made to the offices specified above.

In approving a proposed non-primary use, the office to which application is made may specify such conditions of the proposed use as is deemed advisable. An application may be denied for failure of the applicant to provide full and accurate information as requested.

35.6 OLD CAPITOL USE POLICY.
The main levels of Iowa's Old Capitol have been restored as a museum and historic landmark, accurately depicting the time in which it served successively as a territorial and state capitol. Because of its statewide and national significance, and because the furnishings in the building are made up largely of antiques and other historic artifacts, Old Capitol is not a general purpose meeting facility. Its uses are restricted to: tours by the general public and groups; meetings by groups with state, academic, cultural or historical purposes, and by units of state government; and University operations housed on the building's lower level.

Appropriate meetings in Old Capitol are held only in the Senate Chamber, and are restricted to the hours the building is open. Examples of meetings which would be considered appropriate to the Old Capitol are constitutional conventions, Supreme Court hearings, the defense of doctoral dissertations, faculty meetings, and workshops in historical preservation and restoration.
