Digital Signage Guidelines

Digital signage is reserved for university organizations for university speech. Digital Signage is maintained by Media Services.. The requirements of Policy 161 govern these guidelines. The digital signage guidelines are viewpoint-netural, nondiscriminatory and shall not violate Policy 161. To the extent there is a difference between Policy 161 and these guidelines, Policy 161 will govern.

Please refer to the content guidelines before you submit any content.

Content must be submitted electronically to digitaldisplay@uvu.edu a minimum of three (3) business days prior to the first date the content is to be displayed on the Digital Signage system. Content submissions must include the first name, last name, and phone number of the submitter, the date the content should start running on the Digital Signage system, and the digital poster or video file as an attachment to the email. Additionally, include the banner index number so digital signage can check that the department is a university organization. The index is not charged.
