Policy Regarding Political Candidate-Related Events at Hofstra University

Hofstra University (the “University”) may not make and does not make any political contributions or expenditures for or against candidates in any federal election.

  1. University facilities are available for rental to all federal, state, or local candidates in the normal course of business, and at the usual and normal rental rate. “Available” means that the facility is not otherwise required for the University’s own sponsored events, which always take priority. The full rental amount must be paid in advance by the candidate’s committee or the sponsoring organization renting the facilities, and the University will not sign an agreement for the use without such prepayment.
  2. Any incidental expenses in connection with a candidate’s rental of University facilities, including but not limited to catering costs, refreshments and security fees must be paid directly by the candidate or reimbursed to the University in advance by the candidate’s committee or the sponsoring organization using or renting the facilities.
  3. The University may not and does not expressly advocate the election or defeat of any clearly identified candidate, candidates or candidates of a clearly defined political party.
  4. To ensure compliance with this policy, no department may enter into a facilities use or rental agreement with any candidate for political office, or commit the use of any Hofstra facility for such use, without the prior approval of the University’s General Counsel.
