Napkin Dispenser/Table Tent Policy

Most Dining Services locations allow table announcements as a form of communication to the general RIT public pertaining only to university-wide events.

Please adhere to the following requirements:

  • Permission will be granted on a first come, first serve basis. Please plan ahead to reserve your week for your university-wide event that is open to the entire RIT community. Announcements of non-university wide events that are not open to all campus members will not be permitted.
  • You are responsible for contacting the Dining Services unit manager(s) of the location(s) where you wish to place your announcement.
  • All table announcements must be approved by the unit manager prior to placing them on the tables in the napkin dispensers or as a table tent.
  • Please email or bring a copy of your announcement to the dining location you wish to display your announcement for approval in advance.
  • Only one announcement will be allowed per week and it can only be displayed for one week unless otherwise permitted by the unit manager.
  • You will be responsible for the creation and printing of your announcement, as well as placing your announcement in the napkin dispensers or on the tables.
