Posting Materials in Campus Dining Areas

To post/display any materials in the dining areas on campus, you must first receive approval from Auxiliary Services Marketing. You will need to provide:

  1. A copy of the posting
  2. A contact name, the group or department you are with and a phone number
  3. The dates you would like your materials to be posted.

Send an e-mail to Marketing as soon as possible. We receive numerous requests daily, the sooner you submit your request the more likely it can be accommodated.

After receiving approval on the materials and the posting date, it is the responsibility of the organization to design, print and deliver the items, as follows:

  • Mounted posters should be delivered directly to the dining area. It is your responsibility to secure or provide an easel. Let a supervisor on duty know that you have received prior approval from Auxiliary Marketing before posting.

Please note: Dining Services is not responsible for any materials once they are posted. If you would like your materials back, it is recommended that you retrieve them within three days of posting.
