Housing & Residential Living
Selling on Campus
Sales people are not permitted in College buildings except to do business with College officials. They are specifically prohibited from selling door-to-door in residence halls and other student housing units, and from mail solicitation. Students should ask sales people to show authorization and immediately report to the Office of the Dean of Students any unauthorized person who approaches them.
Carleton students who wish to run a business for their own profit must apply to the Director of Campus Activities for authorization to do so. Student organizations that wish to run a profit activity must apply to the Director or Assistant Director of Campus Activities for authorization to do so. For health and sanitation reasons, students may not engage in business that involves the cooking of food within the residence halls or on campus. By law, food items may not be offered for sale unless they are commercially prepared.
The College will make space available in the Sayles-Hill campus center for the orderly sale of appropriate items and materials. Limited space is available and a nominal fee is charged. Permission to sell and table reservations must be obtained from the Campus Activities Office.
Fund raising drives for charitable purposes may be conducted by students and organizations with permission from the Campus Activities Office.
