Fitch Street Bridge Banners

BANNER POLICY FOR THE FITCH STREET PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE

University Banners

They are allowed to be hung on the outside rail of the bridge to advertise and market major University-wide events. There are three spaces allotted for this purpose. Each space will consist of a banner slot on the north and south side of the bridge. Matching banners will be needed for each side of the bridge.

Student Banners

They are allowed to be hung on the inside rail of the bridge to advertise and market major student events. There are six spaces allotted for this purpose. Each space will consist of a single banner slot on either the north or south side of the bridge. A single banner will be needed.

  • Spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis unless the University believes a particular event takes priority based on University needs. The University has the right to remove and replace banner based on the needs of the University.
  • Date/time sensitive banners will take priority over general informational banners.
  • Banners will be hung a minimum of two weeks prior to the event date.
  • The University is not responsible for damage of any type during the time the banner is hung.

Size of Banners

  • All banners will be professionally made out of outdoor banner mesh material.
  • Size of banner will be thirty feet long by twenty eight inches wide with grommets placed one foot apart on both the top and bottom of the banner.
    • We are trying to optimize the use of the bridge for the marketing of University events so as departments replace their old banners please use the new dimensions above and have them made out of “outdoor banner mesh”.
    • We understand that some existing banners are larger than the new standard and will do our best to accommodate the larger banners during this transition. (Please request two spaces for the larger banners)
