Elon University Chalking Approval

Chalking Policies

  • An Elon student, student organization, faculty or staff member wishing to chalk sidewalks must register the activity with the Director of Campus Center Operations within 10 days prior to the event.
  • Forms are available on PhoenixCONNECT and require the name of the contact person/organization/department, an email address, and the information or sayings that will be chalked.
  • Chalking is only allowed on concrete sidewalks where rain can wash off the chalk. Chalking is not allowed in other places (stairs, walls, on bricks, under colonnades, etc.) as these require additional cleaning to remove. Liquid chalk is strictly prohibited as it also requires additional cleaning to remove.
  • Postings much abide by the Code of Conduct, the University's non-discrimination policies, and all policies in the Student Handbook.
  • If University policies are violated, the Director of the Moseley Center (or designee) may remove the chalking and forward information to Student Conduct, if appropriate. Repeat offenses may, at the minimum, result in a student or organization's loss of privileges. 
  • The individual or group responsible for chalking must clean all areas within 24 hours after the event.
