Posting Policy


The purpose of the posting policy is to articulate the University's guidelines on the posting of signs on campus. Signs shall include:

  • Posters
  • Brochures
  • Fliers
  • Announcements
  • Notices

This policy recognizes that signs serve as a means for communicating information to the campus community in a timely and orderly manner.

Title 5, California Administrative Code, Subchapter 5, Article 9, Sections 42350-42353 specifies certain restrictions on the posting and distribution of printed materials on campuses of the California State University. Campus Presidents and/or designees are granted authority for implementing and for issuing directives pertaining to such regulations.
