Curry Student Center Policies
Posters that are approved and hung in the meeting rooms of Curry Student Center must adhere to the following guidelines:
Advertise a CSI recognized Student Group or a Northeastern University department.
Have a Northeastern University recognized email address. Gmail addresses are approved as long as they are the same as what appears on your engage profile.
Cannot advertise for an event occurring off of the Northeastern University campus.
Cannot have pull tabs.
If your event is paid for by the Student Activity Fee your poster must include the logo indicating this.
No foul or obscene language or images (Must adhere to the Code of Student Conduct – consult the Student Handbook).
Please bring no more than 7 posters to the 325 Operations desk for approval and posting. Approved posters can only be hung in designated areas by a Building Manager. Posters are not to be hung in the hallways, on columns, or doors in the Student Center.
*Posters hung up in Residential Halls have a slightly different in policy. For information on how to hang posters in Residence Halls, see here.
Digital Signage Policy
*Please make sure that all contracts, legal agreements, event bookings, etc. are confirmed before sending the slide/content for posting.*
Please fill out the digital signage form. Click the check boxes for the areas you want to have the slide posted. Each one of those boxes is another screen that is moderated by their own manager. Please note that not all moderators guarantee that they will advertise your event.
Images must be formatted to fit the screens. Vertical screens have a portrait layout and a 16:9 aspect ratio. We will not resize your files, please provide the correct format for each screen you wish to advertise on.
Note: JPEG, PNG, MP4, & MOV files accepted. We do not accept PPTs or PDFs.
Movie files should be no longer than 30 seconds and should not have sound.
In the notes section of the form please indicate when you would like the signage posted and for how long. All event signage will be removed the day after the event. Signage promoting a class or a department initiative will be removed at the end of each semester.
Please understand that these screens are typically mounted on high surfaces, an overly wordy posting will be hard to read. Less is more for digital signage. Please include critical information such as event/class sponsor, event name, date, time, and location of event.
QR codes work well to direct the reader to a site with more info but remember that these screens are not close to the reader so the QR code needs to be large enough to scan.
