Indoor Display Ads

Our 20 indoor displays are LCD screens that reach over 20,000 faculty, staff and students daily who visit the Lory Student Center during the academic year.

A majority of our displays provide a touch-screen experience that enables users to interact with various types of content. When visitors to the Lory Student Center are not interacting with the digital displays, advertising content will rotate continuously.

Digital Display ads are $90 per week, with a discount available to Registered Student Organizations and entities and partners throughout the Lory Student Center when their VIP Discount Code is used.

Reservations run on a weekly basis beginning on Fridays.
