For the reasons of safety, accessibility, sustainability, ADA compliance, and aesthetics, the campus A-Frame procedures have been revised.  A task force including representatives from Facilities, Disability Support Services, Student Leadership & Involvement Center, Dean of Students Office, University Student Union, Events & Conference Services, Office of Communication, and Safety, Health, and Sustainability created the updated procedures.  Below you will find the complete list of procedures. 

Summary of Procedures:

There are a limited number of designated spaces for A-Frames at the various campus locations: Forum Plaza, USU 1st Floor, Markstein, Kellogg Library, University Hall, Veteran’s Center/Markstein, ACD/Founders, SBSB, and the Dome Plaza.

  • A-Frames must be placed in the designated spaces (indicated by a white numbered circle on the pavement) for no more than 30 days. The blue and grey spots are not available spots. 
  • One A-Frame is allowed per white dot identifier.  Do not place an additional or move an A-Frame from a dot identifier. 
  • Organizations/Departments are allowed a maximum of ONE A-Frames in a designated area (i.e. Forum Plaza or USU Arcade).
  • All A-Frames must be identified with a luggage tag indicating the campus sponsoring organization, contact, and length of the posting.  To request luggage tags, please email with your department name, location, and number of tags. 

The spaces and limited number of A-Frames were selected for reasons of accessibility (egress, ADA, and vehicle traffic).  Thank you for your support of this new A-Frame procedure and helping to improve the accessibility of the campus plazas and buildings.
