Poster Distribution-Office of Residential Education - Carnegie Mellon University

Residence Hall Poster Distribution

The Student Life Suite serves as the hub for distributing fliers to the residential staff (RAs and CAs) for posting inside campus residence halls. Posting is limited to Carnegie Mellon University recognized student organizations only - no external solicitors or neighborhood businesses.

The following information must be provided on the poster: date, time, place, sponsored by, funded by (if funded), and contact information either a phone number or Carnegie Mellon University e-mail address (in the form of @andrew.cmu.edu). A Carnegie Mellon email address is non-negotiable and must be provided. You must also indicate if you have reserved appropriate space for your event. Failure to include these information will result in your request for distribution to be declined until the poster is updated.

To ensure timely distribution of posters, posters should be submitted for approval at least a week prior to the event, and copies of posters should be dropped off at Student Life Suite no later than 12pm on Wednesdays. Posters are distributed to residential staff mailboxes every Wednesday.

There are two ways to submit your poster for approval and have it distributed for posting:

IN PERSON

  1. Bring one copy of the poster, with the required information outlined above clearly indicated, to the Student Life Suite during regular business hours.
  2. Complete a "Poster Review Application" form at the front desk.
  3. Once the poster is approved, a Student Life Suite staff will notify the person who submitted the form.
  4. Appropriate number of copies for distribution can be dropped off at Student Life Suite after the approval.

ONLINE

  1. Complete this form and send a copy of the poster to studentlife@andrew.cmu.edu
  2. Once the poster is approved, a Student Life Suite staff member will notify the person who submitted the form.
  3. Appropriate number of copies for distribution can be dropped off at Student Life Suite after the approval.

* The Student Life Suite will NOT make copies of posters; all copies must be provided by the organization.
