Sales Activities on Campus

For the convenience of its community, Cornell University allows limited sales to be conducted on its campus in ways that are consistent with the university’s mission, take account of off-campus businesses, and comply with applicable laws and regulations.

Note: Units established to provide materials or specialized services to campus units (i.e., recharge operations, service facilities, and specialized service facilities) must be established in accordance with University Policy 3.10, Recharge Operations and Service Facilities. Please contact University Relations, where such a unit proposes to provide sales or services for personal use or to the general public, or that would be in competition with local commercial providers offering the same goods or services to determine whether this policy also applies to that operation.
