Policies and Procedures

  1. Posting priority is given to registered FSU student organizations and departments.
    1. For outside organizations, if room is needed on the 4th or 5th floor bulletin boards for FSU student organizations or departments, your materials may be removed.

    days within a 7-day period will be allowed. Poster locations are reserved on a first come
    first served basis. Reservations cannot be made until 2 weeks prior to the event. SILD
    reserves the right to override poster location reservations based on all-university events
    where usage of poster frames is in need, i.e. Admitted Student Days, Black and Gold
    Beginnings, Homecoming, etc. If SILD does not receive the event poster by the day of the
    event, the reservation will be canceled and priority will be given to the next reservation for
    that area on the waiting list.
  6. Postings are to be hung by SILD staff only.
  7. All postings will be recycled once removed by SILD staff. No posters will be available to be saved after the reserved time period. SILD staff will not be held responsible for saving posters after the reserved time period is over

    apartments for rent should be directed to Office of Residence Life.
