PSU Advertising Policies
The Plemmons Student Union provides eleven contact tables, five display cases, four free-standing marquees, digital signage, and two club and organization display cases for advertising a campus event or to promote a Campus Activites registered student organization.
To support the Universitys commitment to being a zero waste campus, table tents, quarter-sheets, flyers, etc. are not permitted to be placed on tables in the Student Union and will be recycled on sight.
Registered student organizations and university departments/programs can request banner space around the Cascades Atrium through Club Hub (opens in a new tab). Banners must advertise an event that will occur within the Student Union, Legends, or Sanford Mall. Banners may be hung one week prior to the scheduled event.
There are two bulletin boards located in the Solarium lobby and Bookstore hallway on which registered student organizations may post flyers advertising events, meetings, recruitment, etc. These bulletin boards are administered by Campus Activities (opens in a new tab).
There are eleven contact tables at various locations in the Student Union. Five are located across from Cascades Café, two are in the Grandfather Mountain Ballroom hallway, two are in the Solarium Lobby and two are in the International Hallway. Tables may be reserved for special event promotions or fundraisers by Campus Activities registered student organizations and University departments, or by outside entities with certain restrictions. Reservations for contact tables follow the same process as room reservations for students and faculty/staff.
There are four display cases available for reservation located in the International Hallway. Display cases may be reserved for up to two week periods for event promotions by registered student organizations or university departments/programs. Reservations follow the same process as room reservations for students and faculty/staff.
There are four marquees in the Student Union on which registered student organizations and university departments/offices may request to have flyers posted. Flyers should be taken to the Information Desk on the first floor of the Student Union. They will be posted for up to 30 days as long as the flyers meet the following criteria:
- Flyers must clearly display the name and contact information of the sponsoring organization
- Flyers may only advertise special events that will take place in the Student Union, Legends, or Sanford Mall
- Flyers may not advertise events or meetings that take place in facilities other than the Student Union, Legends, or Sanford Mall
- Flyers may not advertise weekly meetings exclusively (although the time/location of the sponsoring organization's weekly meetings can be included on flyers for special events)
- Flyers must be at least 6.5" x 8.5" but no larger than 11" x 17"
Flyers will be removed the day after the event they are advertising or after 30 days, whichever is sooner. Flyers may advertise multiple events on multiple dates, however they may still only be posted for 30 consecutive days.
TV Monitors (Digital Signage)

Charity Collection Boxes
The Student Union does not allow boxes, totes, etc. to be placed in hallways for charitable collection (food drives, clothing drives, etc.), as they can create accessibility issues. There are two built-in collection boxes under the stais near the SECU ATM in the international hallway which may each be reserved for up to two weeks at a time. Individual offices may allow donation boxes to be placed in their lobbies/common areas. Reservations for charity collections boxes follow the same process as room reservations for students and faculty/staff.
