Pennsic University Tent Use Policy


University tents are *only* for classes. They should be kept clean & neat. Power where available in tents is not a public resource.

Pennsic University tents may only be used for activities approved by the University Chancellor or other Pennsic senior staff as designated by the Chancellor.

Pennsic University tents may not be reserved for private, individual, or household parties at any time.

Sleeping or camping is prohibited in Pennsic University tents, except in cases of extreme emergency (i.e., a severe storm or other natural disaster) in which Pennsic staff have designated the University tents as a shelter point.

Teachers are responsible for the condition and cleanliness of the tent when they have finished. If your class includes a process that may produce sharp fragments, splinters, or shards (including but not limited to woodworking or metalworking), you must devise a way to collect any sharp fragments from the tent at the end of your class to avoid the possibility of injury to others.

Glass-related classes must devise a way of collecting any fragments of broken glass from the tent interior to avoid the possibility of injury to others.

While most tents have power outlets, the total amount of electrical power available to the University is limited. To prevent tripped circuits, electrical outlets in the tents should be used only for class related activities (i.e., running a computer or projector for a lecture). Use of any equipment requiring significant power draw or running for longer than a normal class time (120 minutes, maximum) must be approved by the University Chancellor or designate.
