Student Housing Digital Signage Guidelines

Digital Signage (LCD screens) managed by UC Davis Student Housing provides a means to reach students living in the residence halls or dining in one of the three dining commons. Currently, only campus departments will be provided access to Digital Signage.

If you are looking to reach students in other campus facilities please visit the UC Davis Division of Student Affairs LCD Display Guidelines website.
