Print Advertising

Get cost-effective student-centered marketing in two locations highly trafficked by students.

Foot Traffic And Ad Locations

The University Student Centers are an excellent place to advertise with daily foot traffic of 5000+ between our two centers Perkins and Trabant. We reach an impressive range of audiences on campus every day and can help you promote your message or event within our spaces through our print advertising spaces.

There are seven print advertising locations in the Trabant University Center and four in the Perkins Student Center, which include prominent banner locations on the exterior patios of both Trabant and Perkins. There is also an additional banner location at Kirkbride Hall. Space is limited and will be given on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are seeking a more custom print advertising solution please reach out to Event Services to facilitate directly.

Print Advertising Policy

Student groups must be registered and in good standing with the University Student Centers. An officer must be listed on Student Central to be eligible to submit your group’s request a space for print advertising.

If you have questions, contact Event Services at 302-831-2633.

General Limitations

To allow all student groups opportunities for access and to prevent a monopoly on print advertising, the following limits are placed on reservations:

  • Due to the number of registered student organizations (RSOs) we have on campus, postings must be specific to student group events (i.e. no general student group promotions are allowed).
  • No more than three print ads per student group are allowed at a time.
  • Registered student organizations may not reserve ad space on behalf of other organizations or University departments.
  • The student group requesting the posting must be primarily responsible for planning, implementing and financing the event.
  • University Student Centers reserves the right to evaluate and make the final determination of the ad. If intentional misrepresentation has occurred, this may result in the suspension of posting privileges in all USC facilities.
  • Approval must be received by USC on all ads before they will be displayed.
  • Postings must prominently display the name of the student group planning the event, as well as provide the date, time, location and the link to your event page.
  • Ads for programs or event series that exceed one single event will only be approved if all events take place during the same calendar week.
  • Student groups classified as Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) must follow the use of the University of Delaware trademark and logos policies.
  • Approval will not be given for ads advertising personal sales of items (e.g. cars, furniture, etc.) or for individuals seeking roommates

Material Specifications

In order to ensure the safety and health of the occupants of University buildings and structures at all times and limit potential damage to buildings and other structures, advertising materials must adhere to the following material specifications:
