Hiring of College Premises
College premises may be hired subject to availability and the Agreement of the Principal and College Corporation.
Under the Education Act (No.2) 1986, the College is required to take such steps as are reasonably practicable to ensure:
- that freedom of speech within the law is secured for students and employees of the College and for visiting speakers;
- the use of College premises shall not be denied to any individual or body of persons on account of their gender, colour, race, language, religious belief, age, marital status, disability, learning difficulty, sexuality, socio-economic status or any other beliefs or views or policies or objectives
The College however, is under no legal obligation to hold meetings on its premises which are open to the outside public.
The College reserves the right to refuse an application where the use would be in direct competition with the College.
Within the context of "freedom of speech”, it is unlawful to incite an audience to violence, breach of the peace or racial hatred. Speakers are also subject to the laws of blasphemy, obscenity, sedition, treason, the official secrets legislation, defamation and contempt of court and Parliament.
The College reserves the right to refuse admission or to eject any person from College Premises.
