Digital Signage

Recreational Services maintains a number of digital screens located throughout each of our facilities.   The number of available spots will vary depending on the scope of Recreational Services' internal needs. Requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

Guidelines:

  • University of Iowa campus departments and student organizations providing events, activities, or services are eligible to request ads to be displayed on our systems.
  • Requests should be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to the start of your first choice week.
  • Screen space may be requested for a flexible 2-week period.
  • Artwork and information must be in a finalized format at the time of submission.
  • Slides must be saved as jpgs and sized to 1920x1080 pixels.
  • Each slide will be displayed for 10 seconds per rotation.
  • Image space is limited, so text should be consistent:
    • Name of sponsoring organization.
    • Name, date, time and location of event.
    • Your contact information.
  • All images must include a disability statement.
    • Example: "Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact us in advance at {include contact name/phone/email of event organizer}."
  • Recreational Services is not responsible for technical difficulties in the event of an offline system and does not guarantee available slots.
  • Recreational Services reserves the right to not approve content and design deemed professionally inappropriate or unacceptable.

Print Marketing

Recreational Services provides digital signage as an alternative option to print marketing for campus departments and student organizations to advertise their programs, events, and services.  Apart from print marketing that is distributed during a solicitation/display table reservation, no print marketing may be displayed/distributed within Recreational Services facilities.  Exceptions are given to departments that share facilities with Recreational Services, and may be given on a case-by-case basis to organizations partnering with Recreational Services to provide a service or program.
