Marquee Content Guidelines
About the UTEP marquees
University Communications (UC), the University’s communications, marketing and media relations office, manages content posted to various marquees across the campus. The signs run 24/7 and provide an ideal medium for promoting campus events to the UTEP community.
The marquees are located in the following areas:
- The freeway marquee is positioned alongside Interstate 10 near the Schuster exit.
- The Mesa marquee is positioned along Mesa Street on the east side of the campus, near the Don Haskins Center.
- The museum marquee is located in front of the Centennial Museum and can be seen from Centennial Plaza.
Posting Policy and Submissions
The marquees deliver information to the campus and the community announcing events or activities on campus.
As such, any request to post information on the marquee must be made in connection with an event that is open to the public.
There is no cost to UTEP colleges, schools, departments, offices and programs to promote events on the marquee, but events must be of a large enough scale and broad enough for marquee consideration.
Content should be submitted two weeks prior to the event or desired run time. UC cannot guarantee timely posting of messages submitted less than a week prior to an event or desired run time.
Requests for new content should be directed to University Communications at the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
