Sponsorship & Advertising

Below you will find information related to advertising your events and programs within our residential areas. Under no circumstances may fliers, brochures, pamphlets, etc. be distributed within the residential areas, including in resident mailboxes or on resident doors.

Residential Area Digital Signage

The electronic marketing system for HRL locations has been established to facilitate the promotion of campus programs and activities.

HRL and the residential reception desks will not accept paper fliers. All fliers should be submitted digitally using this process.

Marketing materials submitted are subject to University policies and procedures, Student Rights and Responsibilities, and ADA codes. Items not permitted: discrimination, defamation, obscenity, pornography, promoting the violent overthrow of the Government or of the existing authorities, inciting to riot and/or infringement on the rights of others.

Display of marketing materials, does not constitute an endorsement whatsoever by HRL.

All materials must be neat and legible. The content must include the name of the registered student organization and/or UM department, and give the date, time, location of event and any applicable charges.

At any time, the HRL administration or designee may deny a request or rescind any approved requests. Requests will be denied for any of the following: infringements on the safety, health, and welfare of the University community and the order of campus operations; materials that are offensive or graphic in nature; violation of ethical standard; and noncompliance with stated policies, procedures, and laws, or other reasons the University deems appropriate for a public area. HRL reserves the right to reduce display time when deemed necessary.
