How it works

Get posters stamped

To get approved and stamped, bring your posters to the appropriate office (see Allendale Posting and Downtown Posting pages for locations).

Know where you can post

Different types of posters must go on different boards. You can post 1 poster on each board.


You can either post the posters yourself for free, or the Promotions Office can post them for $10.

About Campus Posting

Posting Rules and Procedures

The Posting Policy for all Grand Valley State University Campuses was developed to provide a uniform and fair posting method. Groups, organizations, individuals and/or businesses are responsible for the knowledge of these policies.

Posters can be on the boards for up to 1 month. When you stamp your posters, the date on the stamp will be set 1 month in the future.

If you have any questions, please contact the Promotions Office at (616) 331-2340. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, on boards labeled "General" only. You must adhere to the same rules as GVSU related organizations, including content and amount of flyers per board.

Yes, on the 3 boards labeled "Housing Opportunity" only. You cannot post housing options on the General Boards. You must adhere to the same rules as GVSU related organizations, including content and amount of flyers per board.

No. If you would like your posters to stay up after the expiration date, you must re-print them and have them stamped with a new date—stamps will only be set up to one month in the future.

Thousands of posters are posted each semester and there isn't room on the boards to leave posters up for more than a month, so we have this policy in place to keep content fresh and make sure there's enough room for everyone's posters to be seen.

You cannot fax us fliers, but you can mail them and we will post them for $10. We can also print posters for you (for a fee).

You can bring your own stapler or push pins, or borrow a stapler from the Creation Station (located in 0008 Kirkhof).
