Posters on Campus
Posters are a great way to promote your bake sale, pub crawl or meeting.
However, it is important that clubs understand the rules for placing posters on campus.
How And Where to Put Up Posters
Posters on campus must be placed with respect to the infrastructure, building or space. Posters are not permitted in the following locations:
- Glass entrance doors to buildings (particularly moving doors)
- Windows in non-student spaces
- Elevators and toilets (unless approved to be placed in a designated poster holder)
- Fire alarm boxes and emergency equipment
If you would like to put posters up in the library, they can only be placed on pinboards and you need to remove them after your event has passed.
We recommend putting posters up on USASA pinboards as that is the only place they are protected from removal. USASA staff monitor these pinboards and will remove them on your behalf after the event has passed.
- Poster boards - push pins only
- Walls - Blu-Tack or masking tape only (no regular sticky tape)
- Windows - Blu-Tack only
USASA Poster Boards
Only USASA posters and USASA approved posters (including USASA clubs) are allowed on these boards, meaning you won't have to fight to find space. To ensure there is enough space for everyone, please stick to one poster per poster board.
In order for your poster to be recognised by security staff as an approved item, your poster must have approval email approval from our Clubs Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org) and must have one of the following:
USASA runs two year-round promotional campaigns to help celebrate and promote USASA Clubs, Humans of USASA Clubs
