Student organizations that are hosting events with sound amplification either through a speaker system or megaphone are required to obtain a sound permit from the City of Santa Clara in advance of the event date. Permits will not be approved for weekdays (Friday evenings, Saturdays, and Sundays only).
>>> Sound Permit information and application
Permit Application Deadline
At least two weeks prior to the event date.
Each permit has a $63.00 fee assessed by the City of Santa Clara. Your student organization would be responsible for paying this fee.
Approval must be by the appropriate venue manager (most likely the Benson Memorial Center) and/or the Director of Campus Programs in the Center for Student Leadership (CSL).
