Posting of signs outside the campus buildings must have prior approval. Call the us at (208) 282-4086. Do not post signs on painted surfaces inside the buildings. For posting on bulletin boards, you must ask permission from the building departments. Do not post signs on building exteriors, light poles, and trees. State law prohibits the placing of fliers on vehicles in the parking lots.

Can I have a slip n slide on Bartz Field?
Yes if you schedule it through Campus Recreation. If they approve please give the grounds department at least 3 days notice and we will provide the water supply and hose. Slip n slides are limited to a 2 hour duration to reduce the impact to the grass. There is a small fee to non-student groups. Groups are responsible for providing the slide and clean up.
