Campus Media

When targeting youth, Campus Media outperforms alternative paid media, like Facebook Marketing. It makes sense; after all, you’re connecting with students through the trusted voice of the Students’ Union.  

Footfall, frequency of visits and dwell-time in SUs make them the optimal place to reach students with Out Of Home messages. 58% of students can recall ads displayed on digital screens in their Students’ Union vs 51% recall for traditional OOH media. 

Our partnerships with 75+ Students’ Unions in the UK make native the key to accessing on-and-offline campus media.
