Campus Posting

All currently enrolled students & student organizations must have their fliers reviewed and approved for posting. All hard-copy postings must have an official Student Engagement & Leadership (SEAL) Approval Stamp. Student organizations are strongly encouraged to show posters to their advisors prior to obtaining a registration stamp.

Campus Departments & Academic Departments do not need to have hard-copy postings approved by the Office of Student Engagement & Leadership. All departmental postings must clearly display the sponsoring department and must be taken down 3 weeks after posting.

To obtain a registration stamp:

  1. An original poster or flyer must be brought to the Campus Life Suite, 120 Boylston Street, 4th floor, at least 24 hours before the flyer/poster is to be posted or placed.
  2.  Individuals and groups may not post or place any flyer or notice without the original copy being stamped. Unregistered postings will be removed and violations issued.
  3.  All registered flyers/posters will receive an approval sticker with a designation that denotes the end posting date. Flyers/posters will be approved for up to 3 weeks of posting. Groups may copy that flyer for more general distribution. Poster registration does not imply College endorsement.
  4. Student/student organizations are expected to remove their notices when their event has passed.
  5. Alterations to an approved poster are considered unapproved. You must bring your flyer to Campus Life for re-approval.
  6. All flyers must have an Emerson College email address displayed in order to be approved.
  7.  All flyers advertising a fundraiser or donations solicitation must have an approved Fundraising Form on file with the Office of Student Engagement & Leadership before the poster may be stamped for approval.
  8. All flyers advertising an event hosted by a recognized student organization in an off-campus location must have a signed contract on file before the posting may be approved. For non-SGA recognized individuals and organizations, they must additionally show proof of liability insurance before the posting may be approved.
