Project objectives

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

Although the focus of this work is on developing pedestrian wayfinding on campus, the full strategy will address and provide guidance towards how pedestrian wayfinding can be integrated with vehicular wayfinding, including public transit (including bus and ION, the region’s light rail transit system), cycling and public parking. Implementation is planned to begin in late 2018 and will be staged to initially include the University’s south, east and north campuses.
