Sandwich boards & lawn signs

Sandwich boards and lawn signs are a great way to promote events and activities occurring on campus. Facilities manages all outdoor signage and can provide more information and requirements for posting.

Permits are required for sandwich boards and lawn signs. You may request a permit if you are a current student, staff or faculty. For lawn signs on the HUB Lawn, please refer to HUB Advertising. If you are looking for help to create or print your sign, you can reach out to Sign Shop  or Creative Communications. Signs may only be used to promote an established University program or University-sponsored function.

Templates will be available in March 2024
