& Posting in the Residence Halls
Campus organizations who wish to hang posters advertising
University-related events that apply to the entire
University community must have their poster pre-approved by
the Office of Residence Life before printing the posters
(Missouri Hall 1100). To receive approval the poster must clearly
state the name and contact information of the chartered
student organization or University department that is
sponsoring the event.
The posters should be pre-counted for delivery.
Posters for each residence hall must be delivered to the Office
of Residence Life (Missouri Hall 1100).
numbers of posters that will be allowed in the residence halls
are listed below*:
Residence Hall Area
|Grim and the Apartments
|West Campus Suites
Posters must be 11x17 inches or less in size unless
prior permission is received failure to receive prior
approval may result in a lower maximum number posted.
If the number of posters exceeds 36, they will be either
returned to the student organization or recycled.
* During elections for Homecoming, Greek Week and Student
Senate only one poster per building (10) will be excepted.
Posting - Our Pledge
The Hall Directors check for
posters every day. We pledge to have your posters

business days of when you dropped them off. Most often
posters are hung within 24 hours.
When posting in
the Residence Halls, the following guidelines should also be
Posters, signs, banners, etc., will
not be placed on the outside of the halls, including columns
outside entrances and doorways, lawn areas, trees, etc.
One poster per event may be hung on bulletin boards
throughout individual houses within the residence halls at
the discretion of the Student Advisor and the Hall Director
who oversees the area. Hall staff will hang all posters.
Posters should be dropped off at the Residence Life Office
No material may be posted on the walls outside the door of
student rooms; they must be posted on a designated bulletin
board. Posting outside of student room doors is allowed only
with the permission of the students living in that room and

Signs, posters, etc., may not face outward or be
hung from windows in the Residence Halls.
All unapproved posters will
be immediately removed and recycled by hall staff.
This includes posters hung on bulletin boards and other hall
locations by students other than hall staff.
Information about unapproved postings is relayed to the
Center for Student Involvement.
Organizations that post
improperly in the residence halls could have their publicity
privileges revoked. Continued violations may warrant
additional conduct sanctions for the organization.
Both individuals and organizations can also be held
accountable for any damages to the residence halls as a
result of improper postings.
Residence Hall Mailboxes
The only items that will be placed in the mail boxes of
students living in any of our residence halls are those
properly addressed and delivered through the US Postal
Service and campus mail. On those rare occasions where the
nature of the university business constitutes a safety or
university emergency, or is of academic importance,
information may be placed in the personal mail boxes of
residents without going through campus mail. These items
must be previously approved by the appropriate member of the
President's staff. The President's staff member should
contact Residence Life to alert them of the item to be
placed in mailboxes and, in consultation, determine the
method of delivery. The Public Relations office has the
authority to put the Truman Today, the University’s campus
newsletter, in mailboxes during the first four weeks of the
new school year. Residence Life also reserves the right to
place items in student mailboxes that alert students of
housing-related procedures or deadlines.
Hall Desks and Information Tables
Each residence hall will distribute materials including
promotional materials for area businesses at the hall desks
or at information tables located in areas where students
have easy access to the information. Contact Residence Life
Table Tents in the Dining Areas
To display table tents in the dining halls and the Main
Street Market, contact the Sodexho office at 785-4197 to
reserve the tables. The event must be sponsored by a
department. One to two days may be reserved at one time. A
copy of the table tent must first be reviewed by Sodexho and
approved before displaying the tents.
