Do you know what district you work in? New color-coded district signage is now being installed as part of the campus’s year-long wayfinding project. The wayfinding framework divides the campus into seven color-coded districts to make it easier to give directions in a broader context of the campus layout. The names were developed based on a combination of geography, function, and branding. For example, “the Village” is a reflection of the residence halls and student life functions of that district and “Torch” designates the academic core of campus.
