Spectator Events–Safety Rules

Emergency Rules

Effective August 20, 2018, the University made the following emergency rule changes to the Washington Administrative Code:

WAC 504-36-030: Spectator Events–Safety Rules

PURPOSE: In order to meet industry best practices applicable to safety and security at PAC-12 (Pacific Athletic Conference) and NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) events, the university administration is implementing a “clear bag” policy along with other item restrictions. Clear bags help streamline the security process for entry into university events and allow for greater visibility of items being brought into the venues. This policy mirrors those implemented by a majority of peer institutions. Emergency rules are needed to implement the policy changes for the fall 2018 semester athletic season. Equivalent permanent rules are intended for adoption in November 2018, to become effective by January 1, 2019.
