University Unions DigiKnow Screens

 

The University Unions provides the opportunity for university departments and registered student organizations to advertise events and activities on campus.

There are 12 screens located throughout the Texas Union Building (UNB), Student Activity Center (SAC), Prufrock’s Coffee Shop in the PCL, and the Wendy’s in Jester Center. If you are a Registered Student Organization (RSO), as defined by the Dean of Students Student Activities Office, or a department of the University, providing events, activities or services for students you can apply to have a slide for your event or activities show on the University Unions DigiKnow system (digital screens).
