On Campus advertising

Advertise your message to Ohio State faculty, staff and students in the On Campus email newsletter.

Ohio State’s On Campus emails allow for limited paid advertising units in each issue. Advertisers may be from within the university or outside the university.

  • Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to four ads per issue. 
  • Specifications: Advertisements will be no more than 35 words in length, and should include contact information (email or phone number) as well as one URL. Images should be 150x150 pixels, 72DPI (dots per inch) and JPG or PNG files. 
  • We reserve the right to reject or cancel any advertisement for any reason, including, without limitation, advertisements that advocate sedition or other illegal actions; promote activities that are detrimental or damaging to Ohio State; or may be construed as defamatory, invasive of privacy, fraudulent or obscene. We do not accept advertising for the sale of alcohol, tobacco products or firearms. 

Advertising rates

Rates vary for frequency and placement. View the advertising rate card for details.  

Acceptable payments for advertising units
