Campus Event Sign Posts

Campus event sign post example

Event signage is regulated by the University at Buffalo's Exterior Signage Policy.  Signage for events will be posted on Campus Event signposts (E-3). There are five of these signposts on North Campus and one signpost on South Campus (location maps are available below). 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. The sectors are: Academic Complex; Services Complex; Arts & Athletics Complex (North); Ellicott Complex (North); Medical & Dental Complex (South); and Housing Complex (South). The signs are directional only and should be used in conjunction with other directional signage on campus. The event signs will not be used for advertising purposes. Promotional literature for campus events should refer to the appropriate complex and location, including where to park.

The E-3 directional signs can be ordered through University Facilities Customer Service Department. 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. Please provide the Customer Service Department with your request for signage at least 2 weeks before the event. Forms should be faxed to 645-5965 or mailed to University Facilities, Customer Service, 120 John Beane Center, North Campus. Please contact Customer Service at 645-2025 from any campus phone with questions
