Printing Your Academic Conference Posters

University Libraries waives the fees associated with printing academic conference posters for students and faculty if certain requirements are met. This service does not include class projects and/or posters presented as part of a course assignment.

Please note the following academic conference poster requirements:

  • Please allow at least 3 business days for the review and 2 business days for the printing processes.
  • Please review the academic poster design and printing guide before submitting your poster.
  • Your poster submission will be sent to the NIU Clearinghouse for review. 
  • Use of one of the templates provided in the academic poster design and printing guide in order to ensure your design meets their requirements.
  • If the Clearinghouse returns your file to you, you are responsible for making any required edits as well as resubmitting your revised file back to the Clearinghouse for another review before your poster can be printed.
  • The Libraries will contact you to arrange the date, time and location for picking up your poster. These arrangements will depend on your deadline.

Faculty submitting multiple conference posters on behalf of students are asked to please bundle their request.

Please contact CHHS Director of Marketing and Communications Jane Donahue at with any questions.
