Academy property shall be closed to the public during other than normal working hours, as well as during Regimental leave periods and indoctrination training for the fourth class year. The closing of property shall not apply where the Superintendent has approved the after normal working hours use of buildings or athletic facilities for authorized activities. During normal working hours, property shall be closed to the public only when situations require this action to ensure the orderly conduct of Academy business. The Superintendent, or a designated representative of the Superintendent, shall make the decision to close all or any areas of Academy property. This action shall be coordinated with the Head, Department of Public Safety and Security (Security), of the Academy. When property, or a portion thereof, is closed to the public, admission to the property, or to any area thereof, shall be restricted to authorized persons, who shall register with Security personnel upon entry to the property. When requested, any person shall display Government or other identifying credentials to Security personnel when entering, leaving, or while on Academy property.
Prohibited actions against property on the Academy grounds are improper disposal of rubbish; theft of or damage to property; throwing articles from an Academy building; and climbing on statues, fountains or any part of a building.
Persons in and on Academy property shall, at all times, comply with official signs and posted regulations of a prohibitional, instructional or directional nature, and shall also comply with the directions of Academy special police and other authorized officials. These regulations shall be enforced by uniformed special police and other designated security personnel.

The consumption or possession by any person on Academy property of alcoholic beverages, narcotic drugs, hallucinogens, marijuana, barbiturates, amphetamines or any other substances controlled under the laws of the State of New York or the United States is prohibited. These prohibitions shall not apply in cases where drugs are being used as prescribed for a patient by a licensed physician. The prohibition against possession and consumption of alcoholic beverages shall not apply when possessed or consumed by staff or resident officers in private residences, or when the Superintendent, or a designee of the Superintendent, has granted an exemption in writing for an appropriate reason.
Soliciting aims, or commercial soliciting and vending of all kinds, displaying or distributing commercial advertising, or collecting private debts is prohibited on Academy property.

The distribution of materials such as pamphlets, handbills and flyers, and the displaying of placards or posting of materials on bulletin boards or elsewhere in or on Academy property shall be coordinated with the Head, Department of Public Safety and Security, of the Academy so as not to impede Academy employees in the performance of their duties or Midshipmen activities.
Such photographs for news, advertising or commercial purposes may be taken on Academy premises only with the written consent of the Office of External Affairs at the Academy.

The Superintendent may issue and post other specific traffic directives as may be required, applicable to drivers and pedestrians.
