Notices regarding Housing information (sign-up, hall opening/closing, etc.)
Residence Life activities
Other affiliate organizations (Lied, Sheldon, etc.) depending on availability
These policies and guidelines are subject to change depending upon several factors, including visitor feedback, evolution or adoption of new graphic layout standards, digital signage industry mobility, implementation of new technologies and best practices, and other reasons that could potentially
influence this medium.
Absolutely no advertisements or solicitations (excluding Lied, Sheldon, etc.)
Other prohibited messages include:
Sexually suggestive, derogatory, discriminatory, or inflammatory material
Fundraising advertisements or sponsorships for any initiative not directly associated with the University of Nebraska–Lincoln
Events held on campus that are not associated with the University of Nebraska–Lincoln
Messages not in accordance with the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Code of Ethics
Messages that promote or condone behavior that violates University Nebraska–Lincoln policies, or local, state or federal law
References to the sale or consumption of alcohol or illegal drugs
Advertisements of commercial products or services
Messages that include the copyrighted or trademarked works of others
Political messages for candidates or local, state or federal measures and bills (see exception below)
If an event or activity is sponsored in whole or in part by a private housing management company, apartment complex, or developer, the company’s logo and/or name may not appear on the proposed posting/digital signage to be submitted to University Housing.
When a candidate for political office comes to campus, neither the campus nor the hosting facility is taking a political position for or against a candidate. Their presence on campus is strictly educational and similar opportunities are to be offered to all candidates. Posting their event on an
electronic signage board does not make the posting political.
Announcements will be displayed in order of priority
Affiliate organizations (Lied, Sheldon, etc.) and RSOs
Examples of acceptable content
Activities in residence halls and dining centers
Public service notices (parking structure closures, natural disaster, etc.)
Special events (lectures, plays, concerts, annual addresses, etc.)
Scheduled maintenance that affects a significant area of the campus or a large number of students
Digital signage requests should be made through the submission webform and should be submitted at least seven (7) business days prior to the proposed start date.
Content is posted no more than fourteen (14) days prior to the event date and is removed automatically at midnight the day the event concludes.
Informal postings not directly associated with an event may be posted for up to three (3) weeks.
A request that meets all requirements does not guarantee approval. Approval also depends on available space. This is determined on a first-come, first-served basis with the understanding that University Housing content takes priority over all requests.
Digital signage requests should be made through the submission webform at least seven (7) business days prior to the proposed start date.
Requests made without seven business days’ notice are not guaranteed to be displayed. Requests will be on a first-come, first-served basis. University Housing’s marketing department will have discretion over final messaging and graphics displayed on all Housing and Dining message boards.
University Housing Marketing department reserves the right to edit any submitted material, determine what is appropriate for posting, and choose when a posting will appear in the announcement rotation.
The University Housing marketing department will make every effort to fulfill requests but provides no guarantee that digital materials submitted will be posted and reserves the right to limit or exclude submissions.
