Narrowcasting displays on campus

Does your student or study association have a message that might be interesting for many students at our university? Perhaps we can post your student communication message on the information displays.

Student communication comprises all information to students relating to their studies, for instance, changes in schedules, registration deadlines, course announcements, and communication by student organizations like Asset, Integrand, etc. Promotion of events organized by student associations, e.g., parties and receptions, are usually only posted on the displays in the cybercafés.

There are approx. 25 on-campus narrowcasting displays, managed by the department External & Campus Communications of the Marketing and Communications Office. Guidelines apply as to the information posted on these displays (see below).

Posting messages on the narrowcasting displays is free of charge.

The Sports Center manages its own displays. See below for more information.
