Campus Postings

Dear USF Community,

We would like to remind you about USF’s policy regarding posting notices on campus. We understand the need to educate and inform our communities about news and pressing issues, and that is why the university has dedicated space for posters and flyers. When posters are placed outside of the designated campus spaces, and adhesives are used, facilities can be damaged and access can be affected.

Posting Policy

The USF Posting Policy includes additional guidelines for all members of the USF community related to flyers and posters. Flyers may only be posted on bulletin boards. Any flyer that is posted on a surface other than a bulletin board will be removed. The sponsoring entity may forfeit their posting privileges and the posting individual(s) may be held responsible for the cost of removal.

For general campus bulletin boards in the University Center, Harney, and residence hall lobbies, Student Leadership and Engagement (SLE) approves, stamps, and posts each message.

The way we treat one another is the foundation of our campus culture, especially in times of crisis. Our diverse community and how we continue to accompany each other is our greatest gift. The campus policies and guidelines ensure that teaching, learning, and university activities can happen as planned. It's important that everyone is aware that policies are designed to support freedom of speech and encourage community members to make their voices heard.

Support Services

We also want to remind you of the support services available to the USF community:
