If that's true, it's a welcome difference to most universities that I have
encountered on my travels.

Lamentable, but how exactly do you propose to "resist" it?  I think it may
be better to lobby against such a batty policy, especially if you can get
local notables involved if they don't act in the first instance, so you can
embarrass the uni in the press.  They don't like that.  A quiet word along
the lines of "do you know that we're about to take this campaign to the
trade press" to a uni press office can work wonders in getting them to lobby
for you. ;)
