General Guidelines  

  • Any person or group holding a function on a UNSW campus should make a booking to ensure the area is available and all work, health and safety issues have been considered.  

Advertising and Promotions  

  • Notice boards for posters advertising events by clubs and societies are provided across campus. The University asks that posters not be placed in other locations as they may damage walls and surfaces  

  • The removal of posters and any damage caused by posters will be managed through Arc @ UNSW, Sport and Recreation, faculties and other groups and any extreme or repeated occurrences of damage may result in a loss of booking rights to the club or society or group  

  • Chalking causes damage to pavers, sandstone and tiled surfaces and is costly to remove from vertical surfaces (e.g. walls, covered stairways and/or step risers). If you are using chalk to advertise your event, please only write on bitumen roads  

  • Election posters may be put up in the two weeks prior to student elections. After the elections the parties involved should remove all electioneering media and posters from the campus within 48 hours. Failure to do so may (at the discretion of Arc @ UNSW) preclude your team from further elections  

  • Posters or stickers should not be attached on any painted surface.

  • Banners may be displayed on tables, marquis and stalls, however due to safety reasons we ask that you do not fix banners to the buildings. Exceptions will be considered on application in a case by case basis (e.g. Orientation Week, Blood bank, International Festival, Careers Day etc.)  

  • Sandwich boards are not encouraged, however, exceptions may be made for UNSW departments advising official UNSW business (e.g. Venues and Events, Library and Arc @ UNSW events and activities including academic dress services provided by Arc @ UNSW)  

Advertising and Promotions  

We strive to keep the campus as free from commercial advertising as possible. Advertising by external agencies may only be carried out with the prior approval. Any promotional giveaways of food or drinks may be offered outside the University grounds at pedestrian entrances or within the Blockhouse/Roundhouse precinct if approved by Arc @ UNSW.  

Vehicle Access and Parking for Events  

  • All vehicles requiring access to the UNSW grounds must comply with the RMS Restricted Parking Rules and the UNSW Parking Rules  
  • Please email Parking regarding any loading/unloading requirements or access to non-parking areas and pedestrian walkways for function deliveries
