Tents, canopies, and other membrane structures over 400 square feet in size require a Special Event Permit through the Fire Prevention Division.
If multiple tents are being used and they are closer than 10 feet from each other, they will be considered as one.
Permits should be submitted at least 10 days in advance of an event.
All barbecue and open flame/cooking operations require a dedicated fire extinguisher to be in the immediate area. If your group does not possess one, you will need to borrow one from Fire Prevention, pick-up Mon-Fri, between 8-12noon and 1-5pm, at 317 University Hall.
