Complete List of Posting Rules and Regulations
This policy has been designed to ensure that Fordham University students, faculty and staff have equal access to common posting areas, to avoid violations of fire and safety codes, and to preserve the aesthetic quality of the campus. Posting on University property is a privilege, and therefore the University reserves the right to regulate the posting and distribution of all notices.
All posters/fliers must be approved in advance by the Office of Student Leadership and Community Development. An extra copy of the flier must be provided for the Office of Student Leadership and Community Development information book. Only those fliers sponsored by a University department or a registered student organization will be approved.
All promotional material and advertisements must have the “approved for posting” notice displayed on each promotional piece prior to posting. The "approved for posting" stamp must be an original stamp on each flier; photocopies of the stamp are not acceptable forms of approval.
All posters and flyers related to academic research of "human subjects" must be stamped by Fordham University's Institutional Review Board before being approved by the Office of Student Leadership and Community Development.
Publicity must include all pertinent information regarding the event: the name of the sponsoring organization, the time and place of the event, and the admission cost (if any).
Posting is permitted on the panels in front of the elevator banks, with the exception of the panels with the elevator buttons, as well as on the bulletin boards and posting benches at Street Level.
Posting is not permitted in the elevators.
Posting is not permitted on glass, mirrors, painted surfaces in the stairwells, on the street level area in the vicinity of Pope Auditorium and the gallery, over an already existing poster, or within three feet of fire pull boxes.
The sponsoring organization is responsible for removing all fliers and posters immediately following the event.
During student election periods additional guidelines will be developed to assure the fairness of the election process.
For the purpose of this policy: fliers are identified as having a maximum size of 8.5” x 11”; posters are identified as having a maximum size of 1.5’ x 2’. A poster on a floor counts as two fliers, so please do not post posters where you have fliers.
Each department or organization will be allowed to post a maximum of 20 fliers for each event such that:
*only one poster OR two fliers on the Plaza level
*only two fliers on the elevator walls on each floor of the Lowenstein Building
*maximum of five fliers and one poster for each event on the bulletin boards and posting benches in the Street Level hallway that spans from Pope Auditorium to McMahon Hall.
Specific student group posting: Space is reserved for the three student groups that represent the entire student population, commuter students and resident students. United Student Government (USG) postings are available on the bulletin board next to the entrance to the Lowenstein Café. Commuting Student Association (CSA) postings are available on the designated CSA bulletin board outside the CSA office on the 2nd floor. Residence Halls Association (RHA) postings are available on the bulletin board in the lobby of McMahon Hall. These are the only three groups that have designated posting space on campus.
No advertising is permitted on the tiled or carpeted floors or on the grounds of the Plaza, including posters, flyers, and chalk writing.
Club or organization materials are not to be distributed in the cafeteria without the specific approval of the Office of Student Leadership and Community Development.
Monopolizing bulletin board space is not allowed.
A club or organization may not cover the legally-posted material of another club or organization and may not tear down same.
Publicity may not contain a direct or implied reference to the intended availability of alcohol.
Posters are no longer permitted above the Lowenstein escalators. United Student Government (USG) is working with campus administration to introduce electronic posting to the Lincoln Center Campus. All postings in the McMahon Hall Residence Hall must be approved by the Residential Life Office and posted by a representative of the Residential Life staff. Self-posting is NOT permitted in McMahon Hall. It is suggested that twenty copies of fliers and one poster is provided to Residential Life so the information can be posted throughout the building.
