Posting procedures may vary based on the particular building, its layout, and the function(s) of the facility. Uncontrolled and unauthorized postings are considered a potential fire hazard and a violation of Fire and Life Safety Regulations. Careless removal of these improperly posted and/or unauthorized items frequently results in unsightly damage or housekeeping problems. Facilities Management staff will be instructed to remove unauthorized postings, announcements, signs or displays. In order to prevent unauthorized postings on the campuses, the following procedures have been established.
Steps to post flyers:
-Refer to the building posting listbelow for clarification as to whether an approval stamp is required.
-Print flyers and either hang them yourself in the Honor System buildings OR hand them to theappropriate Administrator to get a stamp.When stamped pick up flyers to be posted.
-Flyers should be removed by the installer in a timely manner. The posting must be removed either the day of or the day after the event or 30 days from the posting date.
Building posting list can be found on the CU Anschutz student organization website.
Posting Locations with Honor System:In these buildings, the expectation is that those posting a flyer will follow the intent of this policy. Postings that do not follow the intent of this policy will be removed.

Non-Offensive – Flyers, posters, and signs should not include language inciting imminent lawless action, threats of imminent bodily harm or injury to others, unlawful harassment, obscenity, or defamation.
Flyers can be placed in display cases, existing poster/flyer holders or on bulletin boards, NOT doors, windows, walls, etc. In some buildings, there is a requirement to place postings in these display cases (check with the Building Administrator).
Display cases for postings in elevator lobbies are restricted for use by Facilities Management.
Postings in elevators are to be done in only one elevator when there is a bank of elevators. The designated process must be followed before posting. An announcement should be submitted to the Building Administrator.
Signs and displays that are in public areas such as lobbies, entryways, or exterior to a building require additional steps for approval. This requirement is for larger displays on easels or hanging from the rafters, etc.; NOT for items located in display cases. For banners, displays or other larger items placed in public view the following applies.
The use of easels is highly discouraged and should be done only after contacting the appropriate Building Administrator. Signs on easels can only be used for wayfinding on the day of the event and must be removed immediately after the conclusion of the event. Easels may interfere with the emergency exiting of buildings and will not be approved to advertise upcoming activities or events.
The use of tape, nails, and other fasteners for posting signs or flyers is prohibited. These may damage the facilities, or the posting may block vision creating a safety hazard. Use of existing bulletin boards is recommended. Contact Facilities Management if there are questions about the use of specific locations.
Attaching postings/flyers to external monument signs is strictly prohibited. This may interfere with the wayfinding process on campus. Schools and Departments with large/regular events with outside guests may purchase and set up temporary (same day) directional/wayfinding signage. Contact the Building Administrator for Landscaping/Wayfinding for guidance and approval (refer to the Building List).
