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.


Recreational Services only promotes services and programming directly connected to the department on the Recreational Services website.  This policy also applies to the University of Iowa Events Calendar.  If Recreational Services is partnering with another organization that is hosting an event, Recreational Services will support promotion of the event on the website through the UI Events Calendar.  If the event is not hosted by Recreational Services or a direct partnership, the event will not be approved. If denied, the event will not be displayed on the Events Calendar housed on the Recreational Services website.
