Approximately nine to ten weeks before the start of each term, an announcement will go on Osprey Update asking for advertising requests through an e-mail to Parking and Transportation Services. All submissions will receive a confirmation e-mail within two business days. Those with the first 14 submissions will be told they have obtained space and will be contacted by Parking and Transportation Services to discuss desired / available panel type. Others will be told to try again next semester. Initially only one ad per department / organization / vendor may be purchased each term but if there are not 14 requests, additional space will be made available to those requesting advertising through this program.
All panels must be reviewed and approved by the Marketing and Publications Department. Parking and Transportation Services will inform the Marketing and Publications Department of successful requests and the Marketing and Publications staff will contact the department / organization / vendor to work through the production details.
Ads will be placed during intersession and will remain through the purchased term’s Commencement.
Please note – the Osprey Connector buses do not operate when the University is closed or during intersession, when the University is open but classes are not in session (e.g. breaks between terms and Spring Break).
