Posting Policies

Augsburg College official student organizations, staff and faculty may use college space to publicize events and meetings.

(These policies only apply to posters and flyers posted in areas outside of the residence halls.) Outside organizations and individuals: Please refer to item #8.

2. Postings are only allowed on designated posting strips, bulletin boards and kiosks (where provided). Posting is not permitted on any surface or space, such as glass, doors, or walls.

3. Notices from the Registrar, Facilities Management, and Public Safety may be posted in all areas. Event and Conference Planning may use signs or other materials to fill special requests or for campus events.

4. Posters and flyers must be put up using push pins, tacks or staples; no duct tape, permanent adhesives, or tape may be used. Student organizations will be charged for damages to walls and surfaces.
