Posting Regulations for Students

Flyer Posting

The Office of Student Life (OSL) is responsible for managing six kiosks on campus. All flyers posted on these kiosks must be approved by OSL prior to posting and be sponsored by a registered campus organization or UCSB department with the name of the sponsor printed on the flyers. OSL can only accept six (6) flyers  - one for each kiosk. We post once a week, or you may post them yourself AFTER getting approval. 

The Office of Student Life is open to approve flyers Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. through 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. through 4:00 p.m.

Please review the Posting Regulations (also available HERE in the UCSB Campus Regulations) below.
