University Housing Posting Policy


 Posting_498 

Groups or individuals may submit materials for posting with the purpose of promoting a campus or UW community program, school, organization, activity or event. Posting materials should be submitted to the Residential Life Administration Office for approval. It is recommended that postings are submitted to the Residential Life Administration Office at least one week in advance. Upon approval, Residential Life Staff will display these postings in designated residential locations. Postings will be displayed for up to two weeks or until 24 hours after an event date, whichever occurs first. Only University Housing staff may post materials and any postings that are posted without prior approval will be removed. All materials must conform to state and local laws and the policies of the UW and HFS. An organization responsible for improper posting may subsequently lose the privilege of posting information or reserving rooms in University Housing. An event improperly advertised, which utilizes University Housing space, may be canceled.

Submit your postings to the Residential Life Administration Office at the HFS Central Office in Terry Hall for approval to post your materials.
