Registered Student Organizations are eligible to place signboard on Sather Gate Bridge to advertise their organization's activities. An organization may only have one signboard placed on the bridge at a time.
Signatories will be able to request signboards online beginning the 2nd Monday in February. They will be processed in the order received. The first 36 valid requests will be sent a tentative confirmation, pending approval of the physical board.
A signatory from the registered student organization must bring the signboard to the Event Services Desk on the 2nd floor of the MLK Student Union for approval prior to placement on the bridge. Signboards that do not meet the criteria outlined below will not be approved for placement.
Signboards may be up to 36" tall and 22" wide. Refer to the Signboard Blueprint for general construction guidelines.
All organizations receiving a confirmed space for their signboard will be assigned a location by Event Services. Signboards may be placed on the 12 portions of the bridge that contain balustrades. No signboard may be placed South of Sather Gate.
To allow for routine cleaning, signboards must be elevated at least 4" above the bridge surface, which can be obtained by attaching a piece of wood to the back of the signboard, which will rest the signboard on the bridge footing.
Signboards must be firmly attached to the balustrades with plastic-coated chains or other non-abrasive fasteners.
Starting Spring 2017, we will only be accepting combinations locks. Lock combinations must be submitted prior to signboard approval.
Organizations must remove signboards, chains, and locks by the last day of instruction of each semester. Signboards left on the bridge during the break are subject to removal. The ASUC Student Union is not responsible for signs that are removed. Should it be necessary to make repairs to the bridge during periods of signboard placement, Event Services will contact affected organizations to remove their signboards.
Signboards that are not in compliance with the signboard guidelines and approval procedures will be removed. Violation of the signboard policy can result in removal of the signboard, a $25.00 removal fee, and the loss of future signboard privileges.
