Noise Ordinances for Outdoor Events

When holding events outside that involve high levels of noise (amplifiers, bands, etc.), student clubs/organizations need to get approval from the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department. This helps inform PLU’s neighbors of the event to minimize disturbance.

If your club is interested in putting on an event that involves any outdoor amplification of sound that could extend farther than the reach of PLU’s campus, a form must be filed with Pierce County Sheriff’s Department. Please see Student Engagement for assistance in obtaining and completing the appropriate forms.
