All exterior campus signs must follow university-wide design standards and procedures. Exterior campus signs include all gateway signs, regulatory signs, vehicular and pedestrian wayfinding signs, building and parking lot signs, event signs, seasonal signs, temporary signs and directories.
UB follows a set of design standards that outlines the specifications for the size, shape, color and font for all exterior signage. Eighteen sign types and two variations were created for the campus and are illustrated in UB Signage Types.
To ensure a uniform aesthetic look of all exterior signs on campus, procedures have been established to handle all signage requests. Requests for new signs and changes to existing signs must first be approved by the office of Facilities Planning and Design, and the Signage Review Committee.
The offices of UB Police and Parking and Transportation manage all regulatory signs related to vehicular traffic and parking which are not covered in this policy.
There are two types of temporary signs, seasonal and special event signs.
1. Seasonal signs
2. Special event signs
