University Posting Policies

There are many ways to communicate events and activities on campus; the following list contains some of the more popular ways. Please refer to this when deciding how to best publicize your events. The Center for Student Engagement East Room has general posting supplies available for student organization use. There is no cost for these resources although they must be used by student organizations.


Any posters/flyers for student organizations, departmental or administrative offices, or community groups must follow the following guidelines.

  1. All posters must be in good taste and contain no offensive language, or threat of violence. 
  2. All posters must have a sponsorship listed. Those events or activities sponsored by outside organizations are welcome to use only the general posting boards located in the Donius University Center. 
  3. Because of space limitations, there is a limit of 24, 8.5" x 11" or 14" flyers and 10 poster board size posters. 17 of these flyers can be distributed through Residential Life for the residence halls and apartments.
  4. All posters must be stamped by the Center for Student Engagement with a date for removal. When possible, please have the original stamped before making numerous copies. Once the flyers/posters are stamped, the Center for Student Engagement will see to it that the posters are posted on all general bulletin boards. 
  5. Posters/flyers will be approved for a two-week period. Any exceptions must be made by the Director of Student Involvement. The Center for Student Engagement will remove the poster on the stamped date. 
  6. Posters can be hung only in the following areas in the Donius University Center, academic and administration buildings:
    1. Any bulletin board designated as general posting board (most are indicated by the WHAM logo across the top). 
    2. Brick walls 
    3. Tile Walls 
  7. Only masking or scotch tape may be used in posting posters on tile walls. No posting is allowed on any glass surfaces, door frames, or televisions (including hanging off Digital Signs). 


  1. Banners must be approved by the Center for Student Engagement and can be hung for a period of 3-5 days in the DUC Atrium, any grassy areas (Quad) or outside the Residence Halls or Apartments. 
  2. Arrangements should be made through Physical Plant after the space is reserved through the Center for Student Engagement.
