Other Advertising Opportunities

Posters in the Foyers of Dining Units: If a student group wants to post posters outside of the dining units, they must receive permission to do so by calling the Dining Services main office in Bishop Center at 860-486-3128 to reserve the time and space. After making the reservation, printed posters must be dropped off at this location as well. There is no charge for this service.

Tabling in Dining Unit Foyers: The Department of Dining Services allows student groups to utilize the Dining Units foyers for student table solicitation. If a student group wants a table, they must register with the Student Union Events Services at 860-486-3421. The name of the sponsoring organization must be on all advertising. Groups are not allowed to post flyers, banners or similar advertising on walls. Groups may use existing bulletin boards if they are available. Students may not solicit credit cards or credit card applications. If the sale of baked goods etc. will be taking place then prior approval and certification must take place with the Department of Environmental Health and Services.

Student Organization Reservation Policies available at the reservations office in the Student Union Events Office. When all criteria is met, the Student Union Events Office then contacts the Department of Dining Services to check on availability. Dining Services maintains the master calendar for foyer use.

In the event that the student group determines they will not be using the table they had reserved they must call the Student Union Events Office between the hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm at least 24 hours in advance. Failure to cancel reservations may jeopardize the group’s future reservation privileges.
