Project objectives

The primary purpose of the project is to improve the experience of arriving and navigating in and around the University’s Waterloo campus. Aspects such as functionality, visibility, legibility, accessibility, branding, visual attractiveness, consistency, ease of maintenance, cost and adaptability to accommodate an evolving campus, were considered.

Although the primary focus of this work was on developing pedestrian wayfinding on campus, the full strategy addresses and provides guidance towards how pedestrian wayfinding is to be integrated with vehicular wayfinding, including public transit (including bus and ION, the region’s light rail transit system), cycling and public parking wayfinding. Implementation will be staged to initially include the University’s South, East and North Campuses.
