Staked signs

Posting Guidelines

A staked sign is a non-illuminated sign that is mounted to either a wooden or wire stake that is secured in place by pushing it into the ground. To reserve space please come to the Student Life and Leadership Programs Office, located in New University Union (UU 2011).

  • There should be no more than 25 signs per single event.
  • Signs should not exceed 17 x 22 inches.
  • Signs should not be higher than 3 feet from the ground.
  • Stakes should not exceed 36 inches, and should be placed no deeper than 8 inches into the ground.
  • Signs should be placed in lawn areas only, avoiding potential damage to underground utilities.
  • Signs may be placed no more than 7 days prior to the event and must be removed within one working day following the event.
  • Only signs announcing and promoting university events, activities and programs are permissible. All other postings are subject to removal.
  • Signs must be identified with the name of the individual or organization responsible for the event, activity or program. Otherwise, the posting will be subject to removal.

  • Organizations may be charged for costs incurred by the removal of stake signs or repair to university property due to improper postings.
