Our 20 indoor displays are a liquid crystal screen that reaches an average of 20,000 faculty, staff and students who visit the Lory Student Center on a daily basis during the academic year.
A majority of our displays provide a touch-screen experience that enables users to interact with various types of content. For example, our interactive concierge appropriately named N. Dex allows users to quickly view news, weather, events and maps through a simple user-interface that can be accessed at anytime by touching the digital screen.
When visitors to the Lory Student Center are not interacting with the digital displays, advertising content will rotate continuously. This advertising opportunity provides various entities and partners throughout the Lory Student Center with an opportunity to promote their products, services or events at a discounted rate.
Reservations run on a weekly basis beginning on Fridays.
All reservations start on Friday.
