Student Organization Policies

Student Organization Code of Conduct


The Student Organization Code of Conduct applies to all registered student organizations and members.  The process by which Appalachian State educates registered student organizations who violate the community standards of the Organization Code of Conduct is through disciplinary review and imposition of sanctions.  The University is committed to the principle of fundamental fairness for registered student organizations.

Facility Use Policy


This policy is adopted for the orderly use of University facilities and property by University departments, recognized student clubs and organizations, University affiliated groups and persons, and non-University affiliated groups and organizations and persons, as well as to establish parameters and procedures governing the distribution of printed materials on property owned or controlled by Appalachian State University.

Tunnel Painting


The walls and ceilings of the pedestrian tunnels under Rivers Street are a University venue for use by students to communicate their messages and information to those passing through the tunnels. Such students should understand that the primary purpose of the tunnels is to provide safe passage across Rivers Street for members of the University community and others (including campus visitors, families and children, persons attending campus events, etc.).



This is the policy regarding chalking on campus.  Visit section 3.20 for specific permissions.

PSU Reservation & Facility Usage


The use of the Plemmons Student Union & Legends is reserved during the academic year for ASU students and their guests, and university organizations and departments.  This policy outlines the reservation and facility usage in PSU.
