- Sponsor and contact information must be provided on the poster.
- If it is for an event, a date and time are required as well.
- Posters should not exceed 14×22 inches in size.
- Posters must be affiliated with an approved organization.
- Election posters promoting an individual candidate are not accepted.
Approval and distribution
Please bring your poster to North Hall during regular business hours (8am- 5pm Monday through Friday). Come up to the second floor reception area and someone will assist you. After your poster has been approved, we will distribute them for you. We have a specific distribution policy and therefore can only take a poster for each residence hall (22) or if you are an authorized on-campus club/organization/department, we allow one poster per RA (175). If you would like to put posters in a specific residential hall, you may contact the Resident Hall Director for their approval.
It is recommend that you bring your paper advertisement at least two weeks before your event. It takes a while for the posters to be approved and distributed. You are welcome to bring the posters up sooner, but anything less than two weeks might not give your event enough time to be promoted. We take all posters down the day after the event. If you have an information flier, we will keep it for three weeks after approval.
