The UMC is visited every day by thousands of students, faculty, staff and the public. We offer many ways for your student organization, campus department or community initiative to get its message in front of this audience.

Promote your organization’s or department’s programs, events and other messages to our building visitors!

There are three digital ad screens within the UMC:

  1. First floor, West Dining Room
  2. First floor, exit of the Alferd Packer Restaurant & Grill
  3. Second floor, behind Information Desk

Each ad plays for 20 seconds every 5-6 minutes. That’s a total of 30-36 times an hour on all three signs (10-12 times an hour on each sign).

Contact us early as possible to reserve, as space is limited to maintain the 5-6-minute view cycle. Static ad artwork must be provided at least five business days in advance of ad start date. Videos must be provided at least 10 business days in advance of ad start date so they can be tested and adjusted if needed. Additional rules and restrictions apply. Contact UMC Marketing for details.

Display your message on each table in the three UMC dining areas!
