This was feedback that also came through in our building consultation earlier this year and alongside the rebrand was the reason we redesigned the signage within Student Central this summer.by Osaro Otobo
We replaced all wayfinding with clearer signage that was consistent across the whole building, making it clear which building services were run by the University and which were Students’ Union. We also clearly marked our alcohol/alcohol free and gendered and unisex toilets. In addition we included floor graphics at all major junctions throughout the building to help the journey through our building step by step.
Our WelcomeFest app included a campus map which provided turn by turn directions to help students find their lectures, seminars and teaching spaces in the first month of the year. We also fed back student comments to the University which led to the commonly used abbreviations of buildings been included on signage and university communications.
