Signage

The University's signage program is fundamental on a campus. Proper wayfinding and clear identification are the most important design considerations.

Wayfinding signage shall be designed to assist both vehicular and pedestrian traffic to locate on-campus destinations. Vehicular and pedestrian directional signage and parking lot and building identification signage shall be free-standing and uniform elements. All signage should include the UT logo.
