The university is working in compliance with the American with Disability Act (ADA) to provide the ability to purchase ADA interior room signage.
ADA interior room signs, type A1.1, can be ordered through our local vendor. This is a billable service and the sign company will charge a fee of $59.50 per sign (price valid through 06/30/2019). This fee does not include installation but you can either pay for our vendor to install the signage or put in a billable work order to have University Facilities install the signage.
Once a request is recieved by Customer Service:
Once the ADA signs are installed, you may download the customizable ADA Signage Insert document. Once downloaded, you can edit the file that follows the university sign standards to create your own inserts.
Signage for UB events is posted on campus event signposts (E-3 signs). Complete the Signage Request for Event form two days in advance of your event.
E-3 event signs can be ordered through University Facilities Customer Service. This is a billable service and a fee of $75 will be charged per sign per location. The sign will be displayed for up to 2 days before the event and the day(s) of the event. Additional posting days, if available, will be $5.00 per day. Since there are a limited number of signs that can be up at any time, requests will be filled on a first come-first served basis.
Each sign accommodates a maximum of 3 lines with 14 characters on each line. To begin the request, submit a Work Order at least 2 weeks before the event.
There are five E-3 signposts on North Campus and one signpost on South Campus. Each signpost contains 4 individual signs. These signs are color-coded and will identify the general sector of the campus where the event will take place.

Laboratory door signs must be displayed on laboratories that use hazardous materials. Complete the Laboratory Door Sign Request form.
Facilities coordinates planting trees and placing identifying plaques on campus to serve as recognition or memorial markers for university colleagues. These markers are sponsored by individual or departmental donors. Donors may choose the general marker site location. If a tree will be planted, Facilities will specify its exact location based on the location characteristics.
To request a recognition or memorial marker, submit a Work Order Request. Click Yes on the Form to request a price quote before work is scheduled.
Facilities provides the donor with a list of trees to choose from that will suit the location they selected.
The price of a tree ranges from approximately $100 - $200 depending on the size and type. Tree planting costs approximately $200 and includes the cost of transporting, planting, fertilizing and irrigating the tree. The donor will pay the vendor directly.
Tree options include:
Facilities provides the donor with contact information for a vendor who will manufacture the plaque. The donor will work with the vendor to determine wording and payment for the plaque. The plaque is 6 inches by 8 inches, is made on cast bronze, has raised lettering and is permanently mounted to a concrete base.
The price of a plaque is dependent on the wording and ranges from approximately $100 - $175. The cost of plaque installation is approximately $150 and includes the cost of fabricating the base, mounting the plaque and placing the plaque and base at the site location. The donor will pay the vendor directly.
