Advertising & Campus Relations

University Housing is a large campus-wide operation that works with our UW-Madison partners in many ways, whether it’s providing event spaces, offering catering services, or helping promote campus activities and resources.

Advertising on Table Tents and TVs

During the academic year, some limited promotional spaces are available for campus departments on the paper table tents in our dining units, as well as on the TV message boards in our buildings. Spaces are available for 1-week slots (running Sunday through Saturday) at a cost of $100 for each media per week. Reservations book up quickly, space is subject to availability. For details about scheduling and content, view our Advertising Guidelines. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our Marketing department at

Request A Spot

Table tent and TV ad space reservations for the 2024–25 academic year will be reviewed in July.

University Housing messages have priority, and space is subject to availability. Campus departments are still welcome to submit reservation requests ahead of July, and we will do our best to accommodate your request at that time.

Flyers in the Residence Halls

Requests to post flyers or posters on designated bulletin boards in University Residence Halls are managed through Desk Services. All postings must be reviewed for approval in advance and must be from a Registered Student Organization (RSO) or a campus department. For more details, please view the Desk Postings Policy.
