This is, at its heart, a wayfinding project.
Think back to your first time stepping on to the University of Utah’s campus. We didn’t know where we were, how to get to the building we needed to be in, or take directions based on building names with no spatial context. This initiative makes wayfinding on campus easier for all users by naming our campus pathways. Being able to identify what pathway you are on, and which pathway you need to take next, are basic needs for a university campus. With this initiative, we seek to make directions easier, give the university a sense of place, and welcome student involvement in naming their campus.
