Yo,

      From the UAH Space Hardware Club's description of the FAA Regulations,
as long as you obey part 101.1 of the FAA
Regs<http://www.chem.hawaii.edu/uham/part101.html>,
you can launch from anywhere your tastes fit.  Your only limit then is
what facilities you have as well as any object that can get in your way
during launch.

               - Ethan/Spacefelix, Makers Local 256

P.S. Check out the UAH Space Hardware
Club<https://sites.google.com/site/uahshc/>,
their projects are just amazing going from orbital cubesats, high-altitude
rocket launched can sats as well as their ballooning projects.
