Posting/Advertising in the Residence Communities

Minnesota State Mankato residence communities are restricted access facilities open only to residents and their guests, individuals conducting University business, and those who are granted access for specific, limited purposes. University individuals or groups, non-profit organizations, and commercial enterprises may advertise in the residence communities in accordance with these guidelines. These guidelines reflect the commitment of Residential Life to assure their residents some degree of privacy by restricting access to student living areas.

Promoting an event in the Residence Communities at Minnesota State Mankato:

To advertise your event on the bulletin boards in the residence communities, bring six posters, flyers, or other printed material for each event to the Residential Life office. After approval, these materials will be posted in each residence community. Only one posting per event is allowed.

To advertise an event using a banner, bring up to five (5) banners to the Residential Life office (111 Carkoski Commons). After approval, Residential Life staff will hang the banner in the designated residence community. Banners have size limitations of 3' x 3', for Crawford, McElroy, Preska and Stadium Heights. Banners for Julia Sears may be no larger than 2' x 2'. Banners may only advertise activities that occur within seven (7) days.

To advertise an event using table tents in the Carkoski Dining Hall, contact the Department of Residential Life (507-389-1011) to obtain table tent guidelines and to reserve a space. Table tent guidelines can also be found online at www.mnsu.edu/reslife/resources.

In most instances, Residential Life staff will not post information for non-residence community events and activities on residence community floors. Residential Life staff will remove materials that do not meet these guidelines and items that promote the use of alcohol or other drugs or that discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, veteran's status, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, or status due to receipt of public assistance.
