Does this new Act mean that some person can be outside my residence hall window at 2am talking loudly about declining honeybee populations?

No, not at all – and it wouldn’t matter what the topic was. UCF recognizes that campus is home for many students – and, therefore, UCF does not permit speakers or events between 10pm and 8am Sunday through Thursday and midnight and 8m Friday and Saturday. Additionally, UCF does not permit individuals or groups to be disruptive when they engage in expressive activities. There are various ways that speech activities could be considered disruptive. For example, a speaker cannot block traffic or interfere with people’s ability to get in and out of campus buildings. A speaker cannot use amplified sound unless specifically permitted by UCF. A speaker cannot locate himself right outside of a classroom and speak in a manner that disrupts a class going on. A speaker cannot interfere with the rights of others to speak – so, a speaker cannot use the space being used by another speaker who has a reservation, cannot disrupt a campus event occurring at the same time, and cannot shout down another speaker. Additionally, UCF does not allow speakers to violate the law – so UCF does not permit speakers to be violent, to damage property, or to criminally threaten or assault others.
