Communication channels / promotional activities on campus


Within our university there are various media you can use to communicate a message for a general or a specific target group. In order to help you find the right medium quickly we have categorised the media we have on the page Submit news. When it's regarding a hign impact message you can contact a communication officer of MC to advise you in an effective communication mix

Please find below an overview of the communication channels of Marketing & Communications.

On campus

  • LED screens

    At the moment we have one LED screen on campus available to promote events at the Boulevard at the Vrijhof building. This screen is managed by the Student Union. For requests see the Student Union website.

  • Screens in buildings (narrowcasting)

    A number of buildings at UT have screens on which information (news, announcements, events etc.) can be projected for residents and guests of the building concerned. Management of these screens is not centralised, but the responsibility of the organisational unit within that building or location.

    You can ask a communication advisor of MC for advice on whether the screen is suitable for your message. The delivery of powerpoint slides is centralised through a web form for all buildings. 

    The submission page also contains the manual for system admins of the Appspace narrowcasting system.

    The screens in the buildings are one of the means of communication that can be used to communicate with employees and guests to the buildings. In the category Submit news and events you will find the possibilities per target group.

  • Posters in UT buildings

    Marketing & Communication can support you with various options when you want to announce an event or message on campus. One of these options is having posters printed. For example: research posters, promotional posters or informational posters. The MC Traffic department can advise you on the layout and has the equipment to print these for you.

    PLEASE NOTE! The posters may only be posted in the places intended for this purpose. Contact the Service Desk of the respective building to hang up your posters.

  • Pasting posters on campus

    We would like to keep our beautiful UT campus tidy and prevent every furnishing on the grounds, from lantern posts to rubbish bins, being covered with posters and stickers. 

    We therefore have an active policy in place in respect of unauthorised flyposting.

  • UT wide mass mail

    As an addition to our employee news on the Service Portal it is possible, in specific cases, to reach all students and/or staff at once via a UT-wide mass email.  To ensure that we don't use it too often and we keep using the employee news on the Service Portal for general nice to know information Guidelines and sending criteria were drawn up for this purpose.

    Sending messages through a UT-wide mass email will only be done if it concerns:

    Crisis and/or risk communication (disasters, safety risks and health risks)

    • Managerial information

    • Invitations to corporate UT events where the entire UT populace is invited.

    Human Resources information important to all UT staff.

    Announcements of (changed) regulations important to the entire UT populace

    For instance, FB/Procurement - NS Business Card, travel costs reimbursement).

    Digital questionnaire of research intended to improve the quality of service and/or working conditions at the UT (for instance Staff Research UT, FB).

    If you want to send out a UT-wide mass email you send a request to M&C via the Traffic order form or consult your communication officer of your unit or faculty. 

  • Social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

    There is a separate social media website available with information about UT's social media usage, including a social directory, strategy and guidelines and webcare. Furthermore, this page contains overviews of UT hashtags, best practices and useful downloads.
