Guidelines for Posting on Campus
Posters, Handbills, and Notices: Non-commercial announcements may be posted on behalf of Recognized Student Organizations on bulletin boards and kiosks on university property. Under no circumstances are announcements to be posted on any glass surface. Announcements shall indicate the name of the Recognized Student Organization on whose behalf the announcement is posted and should also include the date posted. It shall be the responsibility of the Recognized Student Organization to remove all such announcements within ten days following the program, event, or election to which the announcements are related.
No poster, handbill, or any other form of announcement may be posted in such a manner as to cause damage (i.e. glue). No announcement may be written or painted upon any building, sidewalk, or other natural feature of the campus.
Chalking is permitted on sidewalks only using light colored chalk in open, horizontal areas so as to allow for eventual removal by rainfall. Chalking is not permitted on the sidewalks around the Speed Art Museum. The use of paint or paint chalk on sidewalks or buildings is prohibited.
Members of the student body, faculty, and/or staff of the University may distribute, on behalf of Recognized Student Organizations, free-of-charge, non-commercial announcements, statements, or materials at any reasonable outdoor area on the campus. Such distribution shall be consistent with the orderly conduct of University affairs, the maintenance of University property, and the free flow of traffic and persons. Efforts must be made to avoid litter. Student organizations are discouraged from attaching paper fliers or announcements to the windshields of the cars in campus parking lots. Distribution by means of accosting individuals or by hawking or shouting is prohibited. Announcements or statements shall indicate the name of the Recognized Student Organization on whose behalf the distribution is made.
Banners: Interested organizations can reserve banner space (SAC ramp, above escalators, etc.) through the Student Activities Center Administration. Banners must conform to the size and materials set up by the SAC Administration. Banners are not permitted to be hung on the railroad trestles, unless written permission is secured from CSX and reviewed by the university. Banners may not be displayed on the viaduct (3rd street and Eastern parkway), unless written permission has been obtained from the city of Louisville, Inspection, Permits, and Licenses, and reviewed by the university.
The Dean of Students Office reserves the right to ask Physical Plant to remove any posters or announcements on unapproved surfaces and bill the Recognized Student Organization for the time and labor charged by Physical Plant. Furthermore, the University reserves the right to remove any posters or announcements that are not deemed appropriate.
In accordance with the Guidelines for Alcohol Use by Recognized Student Organizations, no advertising of alcohol is allowed.
