Who is responsible for signage?

Estates Operations are responsible for:

  • External and internal building name signs.
  • Way-finding and directional signs (including map panels).
  • Fire and safety signs.
  • External signage to buildings and campuses may require planning/advertorial permissions, and some of our buildings are listed and therefore subject to additional legal constraints.

Faculties and Departments are responsible for additional signage:

  • All additional signage must also be chosen from the College's approved signage system.
  • Please note the proper College font and recommended software must be used when updating inserts for door labels. Please contact your Building Manager who has access to the relevant software.
