"Amplified sound is generally prohibited on campus, but may be permitted for official University and registered student organization events with the prior approval of the Director of Campus Activities or his/her designee.
Amplified sound of voice and recorded music on the Lory Student Center Plaza is permitted when approved in advance by LSC Event Planning Services, with a reservation. Live music may not be amplified on the Plaza. The event must take place during the normal office hours of Event Planning Services. Sound levels are not to exceed 80 decibels at any time. Due to the proximity of classrooms, offices, laboratories, and the library, an Event Planning Services staff member will monitor the sound level and may require lower sound levels when necessary to avoid undue disruption of others."In practice, we allow amplified sound whenever we are providing the technical services and where we are able to have control over volume. The 80 decibel limit is pretty arbitrary but it gives us a number that we can show on a decibel meter. Most of the time we will be exceeding that limit but if we are providing the sound system, we chose how to manage the volume levels within reason.
