• Campus Wayfinding Project

Finding Your Way Around Campus

  • Lambton College’s main campus (South Building) has undergone significant change and development with the addition of new buildings and major renovations. These campus renewal initiatives increased the need for updated wayfinding, orientation and navigation-related tools so that our students, staff and guests are able to move around campus with ease.

    The Lambton College Wayfinding Project's main goal is to provide a positive user experience by helping people reach their destination quickly and confidently. Key objectives include:

    • icon-brand-plus-g-150

      Providing a positive campus navigation experience

    • icon-brand-heart-g-150

      Creating a sense of welcoming, especially at campus entrances

    •  icon-brand-flag-g-150

      Developing a consistent, coordinated and scalable wayfinding system.

    The Wayfinding Project utilized the landscape masterplan, brand guidelines and existing wayfinding information and analysis. The project will consist of static, fixed wayfinding signage; temporary moveable signage; digital fixed wayfinding signage; as well as related wayfinding elements.

    To effectively manage this project, it was important to develop a strong stakeholder working group. This group included students, faculty, support staff, and representatives from the Office of the President, Marketing Department and Facilities Management. While all stakeholders were part of the interview process, a smaller group of decision makers was established that guided the project and made final decisions.

    To assist with the project, Lambton College partnered with Entro Communications, a firm with global experience in wayfinding design. Their clients include The Royal Ontario Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, London’s Canary Wharf and the Toronto PATH, as well as the University of Calgary, Ryerson University, Centennial College & Humber College.

    Phase one of the project will be completed by the end of August 2018.
