If your group fails to use a promotional space reservation within the first 24 hours, the reservation may be given to another group. In addition, groups are responsible for removing their posters when their reservation ends, otherwise they will be removed and discarded.
Kiosk space and LED space are available for promotional use. For more details, see the following, http://web.mit.edu/infocenter/lobby7.html. To book space contact the MIT Events and Information Center (7-121, 253-4795, firstname.lastname@example.org).
During the academic year, MIT groups may apply to reserve space for hanging large posters around the center stairwell of the Stratton Student Center. The following policies apply:
- Each organization can have a maximum of ten days per semester.
- Balcony posters must be hung horizontally. The maximum height is 4'0"; the maximum width is 12'0".
- Posters are limited to four spaces on the third floor balcony (see diagram below).
- Poster should be attached only with painters' tape.
- Groups are responsible for removing their posters and all tape when their reservation ends. Tape should not be placed on white painted walls.
- Groups cannot reserve a Stratton Student Center poster position and an infinite corridor panel at the same time.
Use of the Infinite Corridor Panels is provided by the CAC to recognized student organizations and Institute departments for displays that promote their programs. Displays should be attractive, informative, and educational. Reservations may be made once per term by an individual organization for a maximum period of ten (10) days. Beginning early December, applications for panels are accepted for the following IAP and spring terms. Each organization can have a maximum of ten days per semester.
As you enter the Infinite Corridor from Lobby 7, the panels are on the right. Panel A is the first panel; Panel B is the fourth panel; and Panel C is the sixth panel. The panels are all 72" long and 48" wide. These measurements are the size of the finished display (i.e. the visible space). You cannot tuck edges under the frames. Keys for the locks may be obtained from the Campus Activities Complex office, W20-500. You will need to leave your ID with the office until the key is returned. You may not reserve an infinite corridor panel space and a Stratton Student Center poster space on the same day.
CAC has available sandwich boards for event promotion and signage. Groups can rent up to ten boards per week. Student groups can rent for free, and departments pay a small fee. Boards can only be used outside. See CAC website for more details.
Chalking is permissible on sidewalks on campus. Only biodegradable chalk should be used (no other substances). Chalking is not allowed on buildings or steps (particularly 77 Massachusetts Avenue, the gateway to the Institute). Such chalking can lead to fines and/or other penalties. If you are not sure about whether something is okay or not, check in with the CAC or SAO staff before you do anything.
