Narrowcasting displays on campus

There are approximately 40 on-campus narrowcasting displays. The department of External & Campus Communication of the Marketing and Communication Division manages these. We deploy these displays to inform students and employees, to brand the university, to announce events (academic sessions, conferences), and to communicate on any emergencies.

Student communication comprises all information to students relating to their studies, such as, changes in schedules. This does however not include communication from study and student associations. For these purposes, TiGeAk has its own displays on campus.

Crisis communication messages (breakdowns, emergencies, security announcements) are shown on all displays and can take precedence over other messages.

Tip the Communication department

Would you like to bring something to the attention of colleagues, students, or an external target group? Please fill out the Tip the Communication Department form so that the External & Campus Communication (ECC) staff has enough information to work with in passing on your message. You do not need to apply for a specific channel; so there is no need to specifically ask for a narrowcasting. You can just fill out the form below so that we can edit your text and decide which channels to use to communicate your message most effectively. However, if you want to express your preference for a narrowcasting (or any other specific channel), you can add your request at the bottom of the form. However, please keep in mind that we cannot guarantee that your request will be granted.

Please note that the narrowcasting editors have the right to refuse or change messages. Therefore, we strongly recommend to always first fill out the form and make your request to ECC before you have a slide made (by STUDIO).
