Exhibit Guidelines

These guidelines pertain to Brock University departments, committees or organizations who wish to use the exhibit/display space in the Matheson Learning Commons. The Matheson Learning Commons welcomes exhibits that support/highlight the learning, teaching and research activities of Brock University.

We reserve the right to refuse exhibits, cancel displays, and request removal, if necessary.
