A new UT policy governs the use of temporary signs or displays on campus property. The goals of the policy are to ensure that the placement of temporary signage does not damage university property or interfere with normal operations, and to maintain the beauty of campus.

Examples of temporary signage are banners, directional signs, sandwich boards, feather flags, pennant streamers, and sidewalk stickers.

Learn about the new policy.

Here are some of the key points:

  • A form must be submitted and approved at least two weeks before placing temporary signage on campus.
  • The signage must promote or support a specific event or initiative.
  • Signs must not be displayed more than two weeks before the event and must be removed within 24 hours of the event.
  • Signage that requires the installation of a spike, post, or base in the ground must be installed and removed by Facilities Services to avoid damaging underground utilities.

This policy does not include the distribution of fliers, handbills, or posters on campus. Hilltopics has more information on distributing literature on campus.
