Refusal of a Reservation
No reservation for solicitation or vending space will be granted for the following activities:
- Any activity that competes with official College activities or businesses with which CCCS has entered into an exclusive contract (e.g., food service, beverage/snack vending); or
- Any activity prohibited by local, state and/or federal laws (e.g., solicitation for credit cards, campaign contributions, sales or promotion of tobacco and tobacco-related products and marijuana or marijuana-related products).

- Conflict with an earlier request to reserve the same space and time, whether for official College activity or other previously reserved use.
- Failure to conform to the requirements of law, Board Policy, System Procedure or this protocol.
- An adjacent space is being used for an official College activity or a previously reserved use that renders the requested space unsuitable for the proposed activity.
- The request form is incomplete.
- The request alone or cumulatively with other requests exceeds more than 5 days in a semester or is for more than 5 consecutive days.
Violation of this protocol may result in being asked to leave immediately without refund. ACC reserves the right to refuse to grant future applications to individuals or groups in violation of this procedure. Students and employees also may be subject to discipline up to and including suspension or expulsion for students and dismissal or termination for employees.

BPs and SPs are subject to change throughout the year and are effective immediately upon adoption by the Board or System Chancellor, respectively. ACC reserves the right to modify, change, delete or add to this protocol as it deems appropriate.
