Posting Policies

5.0 Bulletin Boards and Other Postings: The University prohibits posting of bills, advertisements or other materials on any University property other than in designated areas. Only students, faculty, staff and recognized University organizations can post on University facilities. Commercial posting by individuals or groups is prohibited unless sponsored by a recognized University organization or unit. A list of designated areas for postings (Appendix E) is available for individuals or groups who wish to post materials at one or more designated bulletin boards on campus. Individuals or groups are responsible for providing copies of the materials and placing them on the designated boards. Additionally, individuals or groups may be required to remove postings not in compliance with this policy. Postings that have expired or do not comply with the requirements of this policy may be removed by University personnel. The cost of such removal may be billed to the sponsoring organization. Until the bill is paid, the sponsoring organization will not be permitted to make any additional postings.

Posted materials may not jeopardize campus safety. Alcoholic beverage consumption may not be the primary message of any posted materials. Materials must clearly promote the activity or event publicized. Postings whose primary purpose is the promotion of commercial goods or services will not be allowed and the name, logo, mark of a commercial entity may not appear as the primary message in any posting.

The maximum size for postings is 11 x 17 and the layout should be vertical. No material should be placed over existing, approved materials. Individuals and groups posting are responsible for removing their own postings. All postings shall be with tacks; adhesive affixtures are not permitted.

The use of chalk on University facilities is not permitted.

The expiration date of all posted materials shall be a maximum of two weeks from the date of approval.

Banners, yard signs and A-frames may be approved for display with permission of the Hendrix Student Center. Banners, yard signs and A-frames shall only be allowed in those locations approved by the University and the University may impose restrictions on the size, location and duration of any banner, yard sign, or A-frame displayed (See Appendix E).

Postings or solicitations (commercial and non-commercial) on motor vehicles parked on Clemson property are not allowed.

Postings for student government elections are not governed by this policy. See the Student Handbook for student government election posting rules and requirements.
