Poster Run Reservation Policies

Poster Run Policies

The Poster Run is available for CSU departments, offices, and registered student organizations, and events they sponsor as well as off-campus organizations.  Space is limited, so advance reservations are highly encouraged.  To reserve a space, apply for a spot using our online form at, contact the Campus Information Managers at, or stop by and see us at the LSC Information Desk. 

How much does it cost?

The Poster Run has 9 spots each week. Each spot is reserved for a poster that is 11X17 inches or smaller at a cost of $25.00 per run. If the poster is larger than 11x17 inches you must reserve two spaces for a total of $50.00 if space permits. Posters larger than 17x22 inches will not be accepted. We accept cash, checks, and internal orders.  Checks must be payable to ‘Campus Information’ and IOs must be payable to ‘Campus Activities.’  Once you have submitted your payment you must fill out the Campus Information Payment Form that will be sent to you by the Campus Information Manager upon reservation and deliver the form along with your posters and payment to the Campus information desk. Posters without a Campus Information payment form will not be accepted.

How often can I use the Poster Run?

There are no restrictions on the number of times an organization may reserve a Poster Run spot during a semester; however, an organization may reserve only two spots per run (per week).  Also, organizations can only reserve a maximum of two consecutive weeks per poster because of the high demand for spot reservations.

You or your department may not reserve a Poster Run if there are any outstanding invoices.

What information should my posters include?

The name of the CSU organization or department MUST be PRINTED on each poster. We will not accept handwritten additions of a sponsoring organization’s or department’s name. Posters should include the date, time, location, and price of the event, if and where applicable.

How long will the posters stay up?

The reservation fee reserves your poster spot for a minimum of one week and maximum of two consecutive weeks, as long as space is available.  Out-dated posters will be removed.  

When do I drop the posters off?

The posters will be hung between noon on Friday and noon on Monday.  Posters must be dropped off at the Campus Information Services desk in the Lory Student Center no later than noon on the Thursday before the week you reserved the spot. If we do not receive the posters on time, we cannot guarantee that they will be displayed.  No refunds will be given. You must also turn in a Campus Information payment form with your posters. Posters without a payment form will not be accepted.

How many posters should I bring?

25 posters.

How far in advance can I make cancelations?

If you choose not to go forward with your poster run reservation, you must cancel 48 hours prior to the due date (Thursdays at noon). If you do not make the cancelation this far in advance, you will still be required to pay the reservation fee.
