Using Signage to Enhance Your Campus Experience

Effective university signage serves numerous practical functions, such as helping:

·       Students find their way to class

·       Prospective students and their families find the dining halls

·       Visiting speakers navigate large buildings

·       Alumni find the parking lot

Something often overlooked, though, is the role that signs play in cultivating the campus atmosphere.

One university that has successfully utilized signs to enhance their campus spirit is Lynn University, located right here in Boca Raton. The university commissioned Sign Partners to build huge monument style letters spelling out the university name in a prominent campus location. The letters are large enough and strong enough for students to climb on them. They have become a signature part of the campus where students congregate between classes and visitors pose for photos.

In addition to creating an iconic monument sign, other ideas for using signage to enliven your university’s campus could include:

·       Create wall murals with a food-related motif to add a feeling of fun and whimsy to the dining experience. The murals are made from decals, which are available in any size. They can cover entire walls or just a portion of one. Additionally, the decals can be designed to be either temporary or permanent. If you decide to create temporary murals, you can update them seasonally or during key periods, such as homecoming weekend or finals, to surprise the students.

·       Another option for dining halls is to hang modern, easy-to-read signage for each area of the room to help students find the type of food they want. The signs could be made of acrylic, aluminum, PVC, vinyl, or even LED, depending on the atmosphere you are seeking to create. Sign Partners design team can visit your location to help you brainstorm ideas that will be both fun and functional for your students and dining hall visitors.

·       In study rooms at the library or at the student center, decorate the walls with wall graphics featuring inspirational quotes from the school’s founders or famous alumni. Alternatively, create full-room murals with a unique theme for each study room, such as an island oasis, ski slope, jungle, or Egyptian pyramids to add some fun and create conversational elements.

·       In the student game rooms, create a playful atmosphere and modern, urban look by using a combination of led signage and mixed materials signs, especially ones made of metal. Creating an inviting atmosphere can help these areas become the places “to see and be seen” on campus.

·       On a more serious note, creating smaller monument signs featuring the school logo in front of administrative buildings where senior school officials work can create a feeling of trust, security, and importance. This is especially important for when donors, government officials, or dignitaries visit.
