Sign Making


All Campus signage is designed, manufactured, installed and maintained by Facilities Management with the only exception for large construction projects or new buildings (where signage is part of the contract).

Design is based on signage standards or existing practice, code requirements and it is closely coordinated with the Division of Marketing and Communication (MarComm) to maintain University brand standards. 

Requesting departments are required to provide funding for any special or additional signage. Any alterations to academic/research or administrative space should include a designated portion of the budget for replacement or addition of the signage.
