The following regulations apply to all rooms, furniture, woodwork, windows, floors, and walls - including the parking ramp and all exterior surfaces.

  • All posting within the Memorial Union will conform to the Iowa State University Posting Policy

Bulletin Boards

Departmental Boards

The MU has several bulletin boards throughout the building that are reserved for approved postings that have been approved through our flyer distribution service. Any unapproved posters put up in these spaces will be removed and discarded immediately. 

General Board

The bulletin board in the ground level corridor between the office of Sorority and Fraternity Engagement (Room 0355) and Student Legal Services (Room 0367) are available for the public. Flyers will be cleared per the Iowa State posting policy, which states that all flyers have to be dated. Flyers can be put up with tacks or turned into the Student Activities office, and they will post the flyer. 

  • One flyer may be submitted to Student Activities in MU Room 1560. Posting will be done by MU staff as quickly as possible, but no more than two weeks before events.  Flyers will be removed after the event has passed or 30 days after posting, whichever date occurs first.


  • Decorations in the MU are generally limited to meeting rooms and ballrooms 

  • Decorations may not be attached in any way to the interior or exterior Memorial Union walls, fixtures, or property

  • Special permission needs to be granted by the Event Management Office for use of wax candles

  • Decorations should not cover windows, doors, or fire routes

All decorations must be removed by the sponsoring group at the conclusion of the event. MU Staff will dispose of any decorations remaining after the event. A minimum $100 cleaning fee may be assessed if the room or surrounding facilities requires excessive, non-routine cleaning after the event.


Solicitors, sales persons, peddlers, canvassers, or flyer distributors seeking student contact may NOT use public areas in the Memorial Union.
