Campus Signage and Wayfinding Project
Starting on Monday, March 4, you will see several new directional signs, banners and other displays that will help campus visitors find their way around campus. This effort, which will take several weeks to implement, constitutes Phase I of an overall signage project that has been developed under the direction of the university’s Wayfinding & Signage Workgroup, a subset of the UNC Asheville Campus Master Planning Process. The goal of the project is to define and identify the campus perimeter, visually create a strong sense of place, create a welcoming campus environment, promote the UNC Asheville brand, help visitors find their way to and around campus, provide simple and clear directional information for visitors, reduce confusion on University Heights, and enhance ADA accessibility. Phase I will focus on the visitor experience, with an emphasis on prospective students and their families.
New light pole banners will define our campus perimeter, while about 40 new vehicular and pedestrian wayfinding signs and information kiosks will be installed.
In the second phase of the signage project, specific building signs will be installed, as well as more directional signage.
More information and a preview of the signage designs can be found in the Wayfinding and Signage Manual.
Those who have worked on the Wayfinding & Signage implementation team include: Rob Nelson, facilitator, Fuquay Solutions; David Todd, director of Facilities Management; Eric Boyce, director of Public Safety; Garrett Male, transportation coordinator; Shannon Earle, director of Admissions; Debbie Griffith, associate vice chancellor for Communication & Marketing; Christine Riley, chief of staff; and Elizabeth Becker, chancellor’s office assistant.
This group has been advised by Chad Roberson and David Lancor from PBC+L, the design firm on this project.
