Poster, Paint, and Sign Policy

POSTER, PAINT, AND SIGN POLICY

The following policies have been accepted by the Bryant University Student Senate and the Office of Campus Engagement. All clubs, organizations, and departments are advised to follow these policies:

  1. Only currently recognized Bryant University student organizations or departments may post posters and signs in the Unistructure and Residence Halls (see Fisher Student Center policy for specific rules relating to that facility).
  2. Posters and signs in the Unistructure may be displayed in enclosed bulletin boards (not departmental). To advertise in the residence halls, posters must be submitted to the Office of Residence Life a minimum of one week prior to your event. Residence Life staff will review the posters, and if approved, submitting group/organization will then be allowed to post them in designated areas within the residence halls. Outdated posters will be removed on a daily basis.
  3. Posters and signs must bear the name of the sponsoring organization or department. In addition, they cannot advertise alcohol as the major focus of the sign or event.
  4. Any signs placed on classroom bulletin boards may not overhang the board, and only one sign per classroom bulletin board is permitted. The maximum number posted for any event is two per bulletin board.
  5. A poster making machine is available in the student organization resource area (third floor of the Fisher Student Center) for use by all recognized student organizations and clubs.
  6. Sidewalk chalking is not permissible on brick walkways; it is permissible on other walkways. If you have any questions about where chalking is permissible, stop by the Office of Campus Engagement.
  7. Off-campus groups must receive permission from the Associate Dean/Director of the Office of Campus Engagement or his/her designee to advertise their event(s) on campus. This permission will be given if the event(s) is/are in support of the aims of the University.
  8. Failure to abide by the guidelines in this policy will necessitate immediate removal of unauthorized posters and signs. Anyone found guilty of removing posters, unless authorized by the Office of Campus Engagement or the sponsoring organization is subject to campus discipline. Violations may be referred to Community Standards.
