Use of bulletin boards, common exterior windows, and exterior doors in university buildings is controlled by the building supervisor of each facility as outlined by UW-Stout Policy 76-3 Facility Use. The building supervisor may designate specific bulletin boards on which authorized groups, as defined in UWS 21.04 Use of University Facilities, may post materials.
The building supervisor must also approve any materials, such as window clings, placed on exterior doors or windows in common areas—unless specifically permitted by all-university policy. A list of current building supervisors can be found on the Business, Finance, & Administrative Services website (must log in with UW-Stout credentials).
Signs are allowed and should be displayed with these two residence hall policies in mind:
Fire Safety - Decorations (pg.19) - Students may not cover more than fifty percent of the hallway-side of their room doors with decorations. Decorations should not protrude from the door.
Posting of Signs (pg. 21) - Students may not post signs anywhere inside or outside of the residence halls without prior approval from University Housing. Unauthorized removal of approved postings is not permitted.
The university assumes no liability for the content of materials distributed on its campus and reminds those who distribute materials to be aware of applicable laws, including, but not limited to, laws regarding libel, defamation, obscenity, fair labor relations or incitement to violence.
