Hobson Memorial Union Help Desk


The information desk is an essential part of the student union operation. Located in the Upper Union, students can get information about campus events, including student programs, musical performances and workshops, as well as learn about room reservations and BSU clubs and organizations. We also provide student guides, student directories and athletic schedules. In addition to general campus information, the information desk provides the following services:

Copy Service

  • Letter- and legal-size copies: $0.05 per page
  • Letter-size transparencies: $0.25 per page


  • Business card size: $0.25
  • Letter and legal size: $1 per page
  • Anything larger: $1 per foot

Student, Faculty & Staff ID Cards

ID cards can be made when the desk is open. Your first ID card is free; replacement IDs are $20.

Poster Approval

Twenty-one (21) bulletin boards are available for postings at BSU and one (1) at Northwest Technical College. All postings must be approved in advance by the Hobson Union Information Desk and may not exceed 14″ X 22.″ Posters will be displayed for two weeks. Non-BSU related posters are considered personal and must also be approved. Personal posters will be hung on the two bulletin boards in the student union that are specifically for personal use. BSU clubs and organizations may also have banners approved for hanging in the lower Lakeside Food Court and in the library tunnel.

Every BSU poster needs to have the following content:

  • Sponsored by [name of BSU club/group/department]
  • “If you need an accommodation for this program/event, please contact the Accessibility Services Office (Decker Hall 202) at (218) 755-3883. If an interpreter is needed, two weeks’ notice is requested.”
