Light pole banners on Grounds

As an iconic institution of higher education, and as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the University has important guidelines and a process that direct how light pole banners and other pageantry can be placed and displayed on and around Grounds.

This process — which brings together the Office of the Architect for the University, University Communications and Facilities Management — helps ensure light pole banners are hung with consideration for the historic importance of the University. The process also helps University Communications design artwork that is consistent with University brand identity and that creates a coherent experience for University visitors and community.

As a key step in the process, the three groups listed above will review all light pole banner requests that involve installation on and around buildings, bridges, light poles, etc. on or bordering Grounds. To request light pole banners, please download and fill out the Light Pole Banner Request Form Word document icon.
