Signage protocol

Signage protocol ensures that we provide a structured approach to signage and way finding for the University.

An example of content from the Signage Protocol guide

This guide has been developed for a wide range of audiences, including estates development managers, project managers, capital teams and external contractors. It will help you to ensure consistency of signage across the University’s disparate properties.


  • To ensure University signage follows best practice and is clear, accessible and inclusive for all
  • To ensure all signage reflects the University’s brand, both in terms of visual treatment and in terms of quality/gravitas
  • To promote the use of high quality, ethical and sustainable materials and production methods
