Event notices & posters

I want to:  
Hang posters around the school to promote my event

We encourage you to use the bulletin boards that are by the elevators on every floor.

If you do post notices elsewhere inside the building, please ensure that you use fun-tak so as not to damage the painted surfaces on the doors and walls. Note: If fun-tak is not used on your posters/notices they will be removed.

Please do not post any notices on the front entrance doors on University Avenue or the two side entrance doors in that area. Any notices placed on these doors will be removed.

Once your event has taken place, please remove all posters/notices relating to the event.

Advertise my event to the school community

Add your event to the events calendar

Add your event to the weekly newsletters (This Week @ Weldon = students; This Week in Brief = grad students, school and clinic staff, part- and full-time faculty).

Send your submissions by Friday each week to:
