Chalking on Campus

The University of Mississippi recognizes that chalking of sidewalks is a way to announce programs, promote events, exchange opinions, share messages, and
otherwise express ideas. This policy is designed to permit sidewalk chalking while also advancing important university interests, including but not
limited to ensuring campus safety, safeguarding entrances and exits to and from university facilities, protecting university property and facilities,
and maintaining the aesthetic appeal of campus. This policy applies to all university students, staff, faculty, affiliates, and visitors.

Please visit for the full policy. An outline of areas on campus that are preserved from chalking is outlined below with preserved areas highlighted in yellow. Please refer to the policy for specific locations.
