The University Centers (Price Center and Student Center) strengthens communications for the university community by broadcasting campus announcements and promoting campus activities on the Price Center Marquee.

As the community center of the campus, the mission of the University is to provide a welcoming environment to all students, meet the daily needs of the campus community, enrich students experience of campus life, and encourage members of the campus community to gather, interact, and exchange ideas and opinions.


All announcements broadcast on the Price Center Marquee must be in compliance with the UC San Diego University Centers mission and must follow the Price Center Marquee policies and procedures. The Marquee Coordinator, the Graphics Supervisor and the Assistant Director - Marketing and Programs assume responsibility for insuring full compliance with guidelines. Thus, in responding to requests to authorize a specific announcement, the Marquee staff reserves the right to edit or delete the text, written or visual, of material submitted for broadcasting.

Price Center Marquee Broadcasting Request Process

The process outlined below should be followed to request authorization for broadcast announcements.

  2. Broadcast announcements run for one week.

  3. Requests must be submitted online at least two weeks prior to the scheduled broadcast. Since announcements run for one week, you must complete your submission at least three weeks prior to the actual event.

      • JPG, PNG or PDF (preferred)

  5. The Marquee Coordinator will create or place the announcement, within the parameters of the marquee software, and with review and approval from the Graphics Supervisor and the Assistant Director – Marketing and Program.

  6. If your submission is not approved, the Marquee Coordinator will notify you.

  7. In the event of heavy volume, the Marquee Coordinator reserves the right to change the requested frequency of broadcast.
