Posting/Flyer Policy

Effective January 16, 2021: all posting by outside groups or individuals in residential buildings is prohibited. This includes JHU affiliated student groups, clubs, and activities, and by any office that does not have an office located in a residential space. All violations will be removed immediately, and it is paramount that student, faculty, and staff are adhering to University guidelines surrounding coronavirus, and not attempting to access residential spaces.

Starting for the Fall 2018 Semester, all registered Johns Hopkins Student Groups will no longer have to register their flyers with the Office of Residential Life, prior to posting in the residence halls. You may post for your organizations events and programs, in the residence halls as you need, noting to continue to follow the existing policies we have set in place. Violation of one or more of the below policies will result in the removal of any advertisement/flyer and the group responsible being barred from advertising in the residence halls for up to a full academic year.

Residence hall posting policy specifies:

  • Only registered student groups may place advertisements in residence halls.
  • Flyer posting begins on the first day of classes each semester.
  • Only 1 copy of the advertisement can be placed in the designated areas.
  • Flyers are only permitted to be displayed for up to 2 weeks. They must be taken down by the organization after the event date.
  • All flyers must have clear contact information displayed, (ie. email, phone number or direct social media name of the organization) and list a clear end date.
  • All advertisements must be 8.5″x 11″ (letter size paper) or smaller. Larger size posters are only permitted for large-scale departmental events in student life/student affairs.
  • Groups cannot advertise an event held at an establishment that is primarily a bar and advertisements cannot reference or imply alcohol consumption, unless registered appropriately. Further, approved events with alcohol should not be advertised in first year buildings.
  • Advertisements must not contain material that is pornographic, harasses any individual or group on the basis of race, gender, national origin, religion or sexual orientation; contains a message of hate or a threat of violence.
  • All items must be hung with blue or green painters tape and cannot be placed in appointed, finished or glass surfaces. (ie. no doors or blocking any windows)
  • University staff or their designee may immediately remove posted materials that are in violation of these rules.
  • Students or student groups who violate these policies are subject to disciplinary action, including, but not limited to, suspension of posting privileges, loss of other privileges, or other sanctions or corrective measures.
