Submit a request for a new digital sign

How do I post?

Follow these instructions to post your sign: 

  • Contact Information:
    Start by filling out your name, email and phone number. Add any comments if you have them. These are only for the approvers, they will not show up on the sign. 

  • Playtime Info:
    Start Date: Select from the calendar the date and time you want your sign to display. The system will only allow you to display your sign for a duration of two weeks. If you would like your sign up longer you will have to re-submit.

    For example, if your event is on October 24, select October 10 as your start date.

    End date: Select the time and date you would like the sign removed. We recommend scheduling the sign to end one hour before your event starts to avoid having outdated information on our campus monitors.

  • Select your type of sign:

    Option 1: OCC Template:
    If you do not have a sign created you will select this option.

    If you would like your sign to display on all campuses, select
    “All Campus Ad”

    If you only want one campus, select just that one, for example, “Auburn Hills Campus  Ad.”

    Enter a Headline to grab attention.

    Add a secondary headline if you have one. 

    In the details add a brief description and any relevant information including date, time and location, and web URL,

    Enter your email address and phone number.

    Remember that the signs are on a 12-15 second rotation so keep the information brief so that people can consume the information before the screen changes.

    Option 2: Pre-made Digital Sign
    You will only select this option if you have a pre-designed sign (1920 x 1080) created by your business/organization or OCC's Creative Services team. 


    If you want your sign to display on all student life boards throughout all campuses, please select “All campus-Image Upload”

    If you only want one campus, select just that one, for example, “Auburn Hills Campus-image upload”

    We recommend adding a short link or QR code to your webpage so people can scan it and find more information.

    Attach the image from your computer and hit submit. Once the sign is approved by student life it will automatically be placed on the appropriate boards.

  • Preview your sign and if all looks good, submit.
