Hughes-Trigg Student Center

Promote Your Event

The Hughes-Trigg Student Center is one of the most-visited locations on campus. It is a great place to advertise any type of event, organization or company. Hughes-Trigg grants advertisement opportunities to members of the SMU Community and Greater Dallas area. Below is a list of various methods of advertising Hughes-Trigg can support; we are sure one will suit you and your group's needs. For more information on any of these, please contact us at 214-768-4400.

Bulletin Boards

HTSC has several bulletin boards around the building where SMU and non-SMU groups can post information. Boards can be used to post advertisements about their business, product, employment opportunities or anything else, within our guidelines. No fee or approval required; simply post your bulletin and be sure to remove it as soon as your event concludes. The boards will be cleared by the last day of finals each semester. Please note all postings must adhere to SMU's Code of Conduct. Any postings that violate this Code will be automatically removed.

The Crossing

HTSC offers a space where vendors who are unaffiliated with SMU can display and promote their products and/or services. The Crossing is located on the main level of the Student Center next to the centrally-located Commons area. The space in the Crossing is 255 square feet total and the total counter space is 10’6” long by 2’2” deep. Vendors are automatically assigned one section (3'6" x 2'2") but may request to rent of all three sections. We can accommodate almost any type of vendor in this area. For a minor fee of $150 per section per day, or $375 for all three sections, vendors have the opportunity to reach the SMU community. Read The Crossing guidelines.

Student organizations and campus departments who have requested use of the West Bridge will automatically be assigned a space at the Crossing if all three West Bridge tables are reserved.
