Room Signage

Wichita State University has adopted standard interior signage for most of its buildings. These signs are designed to: 

  • Bring uniformity to interior signs across campus
  • Make changing the signs flexible for departments
  • Meet basic ADA requirements

The sign holders are constructed to accept a paper insert that any department can create using Acrobat and a laser printer. Templates may be downloaded that allow you to create a sign for a person’s office or for a common space, like a conference room or computer lab. When using the templates, please follow these basic rules:

  1. For personal offices, you may include the individual’s name (always in CAPS) and title (in upper / lower case).
  2. For common spaces, like conference rooms and labs, use the name of the space (always in CAPS).
  3. Do not change the prescribed fonts, colors, type sizes or basic layout for inserts.
  4. When information does not need to be added to a sign, leave space empty for Style 1 or Cubicle or print a blank insert for a finished look Style 2.

Download templates

You may download a fillable PDF to use as a template. Click links below to begin download. Use the edit PDF option in Adobe Acrobat to fill in your information.  The templates are set up to print one per page. 

All questions about door signage should be directed to Facilities Planning at 316-978-3030.
