Exterior Banner Line Policy

Exterior Banner Line Policy

The following policy has been established to provide for the safe and equitable use of the banner lines suspended over the Carolina Union Plaza. Student organizations and University departments may display a banner by reserving the banner line on a first-come, first-served basis, in order to publicize events taking place at the Carolina Union.           

  • The banner line must be reserved through the Office of Event Services.
  • Events must not be advertised more than 10 days in advance of the last date (if more than one).
  • All banners must be approved by Communications and Creative Services, according to these three options:
    • Communications and Creative Services may design and print the banner. Clients must meet with Communications and Creative Services at least 30 days prior to reservation for design consultation (see Fees, V-A).
    • Communications and Creative Services may print a banner design provided by client. Clients must meet with Marketing & Design at least 30 days prior to reservation for printing consultation (see Fees, V-A).
    • Client may design and print their own banner, which must be approved by Communications and Creative Services a minimum of two weeks prior to reservation.
  • The banner must be 96” wide x 36” tall and be printed on vinyl with a grommet in each corner.
  • Banners must be submitted to the Office of Event Services two business days prior to the reservation.
  • Only one banner may be hung on the banner line at any time.
  • All banners must be hung by Carolina Union staff.  The Carolina Union assumes no responsibility for damaged banners, either while in their possession prior to hanging or while banners are displayed.  Nothing can be added to a banner that has already been hung.
  • Banners must be collected within three business days after the reservation or they will be discarded.
