Posters and Promotions

Registered student organizations and campus departments can hang posters in the residence halls by bringing 2 copies of the poster to the Amsterdam Hall front desk to receive approval.  Please note that approval may take up to 24-48 hours, so we encourage you to plan accordingly.

Advertisements for non-university sales or job listings will not be approved regardless of student organization sponsorship.
