Advertising & promotion
The Iowa Memorial Union provides opportunities for registered UI Student Organizations and University Departments to advertise their organizations, events, and initiatives. These opportunities are subject to all IMU, Dean of Students, and University of Iowa operating policies.
Digital displays are a designated public forum for registered student organizations and university departments. The slides are displayed on TV screens throughout the IMU. The content does not express nor reflects the position of the Iowa Memorial Union or The University of Iowa. Display reservations are allowed for three (3) weeks per semester and can be in-consecutive or weekly increments, based on individual organizationâs needs. Digital displays are managed by IMU Event Services, for more information on digital display guidelines and policy click here, or contact IMU Event Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 319-335-3114
Information Tables & Bake Sales
Information tables are provided so that registered student organizations and UI departments may make contact with students for the dissemination of information or to collect funds or other support (e.g., signatures, supplies) from persons outside its membership. An Event Information Form (EIF) may be required for student organizations using information tables. This will be determined by the IMU Event Services Office.
Tabletop space is made available for student organization and university department announcements about university events and services. Approval for table tents will be given to organizations promoting university sponsored events. Table tents must be strictly informational (for example publicizing events, meetings or programs). Table tents expressing specific opinions or beliefs will not be approved. The display of informational material in the IMU should not be considered an endorsement by the Iowa Memorial Union or the University of Iowa.
Hubbard Park Fence
Three (3) spaces are available on the Hubbard Park Fence for registered student organizations and university departments to hang signs and/or banners for the purpose of promoting special events or activities occurring on Hubbard Park or in the Iowa Memorial Union. The available space is located on the north end of the Hubbard Park fence at the corner of Madison and Jefferson Streets.
Chalking, defined as the marking of a surface with chalk in order to communicate a message, is available for registered student organizations to publicize an upcoming event which that organization is sponsoring that will be open to all students.
Ground Floor Displays
Displays are a great way to promote an event for your student organization or department. The new Hawk Shop, Union Station, and Hawkeye Room on the ground floor of the IMU provide great traction for the 44"x44" displays. The ground floor displays in the IMU are solely event driven; below are a few examples of the type of events advertised in the displays:
