Campus Signage 

The following guidelines must be followed when hanging signage on campus:
• Nails, tacks, tape, or staples may not be used to attach posters to trees or buildings. Posters and banners may be tied to tree trunks with string.
• Stakes bearing signs may not be driven into the ground. From time to time, University departments may install directional signs similar in design to those signs placed in yards for political campaigns. Student organizations desiring to use such signs must obtain authorization from the Director of Student Organizations, or the director’s designee.

*Note that the use of such signs is reserved for directions, only, that they may not be used for general advertising or promotion,

and that they must be removed immediately at the conclusion of the event for which they are installed.

• Banners may not be hung from trees, between trees, or from other objects such as lampposts.
• With the endorsement and cooperation of student government, a series of poles with rigging especially designed for the hanging of banners has been installed on the east side of Rand Hall, to consolidate the display of banners.
• Using markers and permanent paint on any surface other than banners, posters or flyers is prohibited, as is using self-adhesive labels or stickers. Individuals and organizations may be charged for repair or cleaning of damaged

Other campus departments may request to post a sign by submitting it in the same format to the email address above. Please note that priority is given to student organizations and DOS departments. Signs from other departments will be accepted as space on the queue allows.
