Digital signs in Lincoln Hall

Lincoln Hall features five digital signs - four on the first floor and one on the second floor. Read on to learn about how to use them.

About our digital signs

Screens in Lincoln Hall allow campus units and registered student organizations to promote opportunities relevant to LAS students. The Office of Communications and Marketing posts content to the signs during regular business hours.

What we post

The digital signs feature content appropriate to LAS students submitted by those within the university. There's no charge to use them. Your sign's duration may depend on the volume of signs submitted. The Office of Communications and Marketing reviews all slides for appropriateness and has a final say on what slides are running.

Creating your sign

Our digital signs display landscape-oriented images that are 16 inches wide by 9 inches tall (specifically, 1920 by 1080 pixels) and 72 dpi. If possible, submit your image in these proportions. Signs run for 10 seconds each, so please make sure your slide has just one main idea. Often, it's helpful to refer those who see it to a website with more information. Try to keep your slides to 15 words or less.
