Advertising and Promotion

Promote event information and news of interest to students, faculty, staff, and visitors in the residence halls.

The residence halls are a great place to promote your event, but space is limited. The guidelines below apply to paper flyers and digital display advertising.

Housing & Residential Life (HRL) has final discretion over all materials within the residence halls. We do not accept advertising that is commercial in nature other than URI-affiliated charitable efforts. Space is limited. Priority of requests falls in this order:

  1. HRL related content (including programs or events)
  2. Campus activities, programs or events
  3. URI-affiliated organizations

All advertising requests for residence halls should be made at least one week prior to the proposed promotion start date, and include the duration of the advertising/end date, and contact person/information. Requests must be submitted using the form on this page.

Digital Signage

All requests should meet the following requirements:

  • Files should be in PDF, PNG or JPG/JPEG file format.
  • All images must be in landscape format; use a resolution of 1733×1000 pixels (width/height), or document size of 26in x 15in.
  • Approved content is posted for maximum of fourteen (14) days and is removed automatically at midnight the day the event concludes.
