The Office of Communications and Marketing, in association with Facilities Services, is responsible for reviewing and approving all requests to hang banners from poles on the campus of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
Groups or organizations wishing to hang banners must submit a request at least three weeks before the desired date when the banners should be displayed. The request should include the number of banners to be displayed, the desired locations, the design of the banners, and the beginning and ending dates for when the banners should be displayed.
Banners must be in good taste, abide by UT graphic identity standards, and may not contain commercial content. If requested, Communications and Marketing may design the banners. If this service is required, please submit a project request form. Please allow at least three additional weeks for design and printing.
Only recognized campus organizations and departments may display banners.
Banners will only be displayed for a predetermined, limited time.
The exact dates when banners are put up and taken down will be impacted by the availability of appropriate staff from Facilities Services.
There will be a fee charged by facility services for putting up and taking down the banners.
The organization wishing to hang banners is responsible for all costs associated with producing and hanging the banners.
The size of banners that can be accommodated varies across campus depending upon the hardware on the poles. For specific information, please contact Communications and Marketing.
