Advertising in the HUB
As the community center for the UW Seattle campus, the HUB views communications about campus events, programs, and activities intended for UW students and the promotion of the educational mission of the University as central to our mission. To this end, the HUB offers multiple methods for event promotion for use by the UW campus community.
Inside the HUB: Chalking any surface inside the HUB and on the HUB patios is strictly prohibited.
Outside the HUB: Outdoor chalking is allowed to advertise campus events by RSOs, ASUW, and GPSS. Outdoor chalking must meet the following:
- Chalk must be water-soluble and non-aerosol.
- Chalking is allowed on concrete or asphalt walkways.
- Chalking is not allowed on brick, stone, or marble walkways, or any vertical surfaces (i.e., building walls, poles, public art, stairways, fences, etc.).
- The organizer’s name must be included.
- Fines for violations of this policy will be levied based on the labor and materials needed to remove chalk by UW Facilities Maintenance staff.
HUB Event Services provides clip stands and/or easels for events held in the HUB. Requests may be submitted to HUB Event Services as part of the HUB reservation or event planning process. Clip stands or easels are provided on an as-available basis and solely for meetings and events held in the HUB.
Inside the HUB: In accordance with WAC 478-136-030, solicitation and distribution of handbills in public areas of the HUB is strictly prohibited. Distribution of handbills or literature may occur within a reserved HUB space and only by those hosting and attending the event or activity within that reserved space. Groups are encouraged to reserve a HUB Literature Table through HUB Event Services for distribution of materials.
Outside the HUB/Campus: UW and non-UW entities are permitted to distribute handbills and other materials on pedestrian walkways around campus, but may not block the flow of traffic on these walkways or interfere with scheduled events on the HUB Lawn or HUB Patio. RSOs are encouraged to utilize the Resource Center tents, tables, and chairs for such distribution.
