A New Generation of Wayfinding for a Smart Campus

In 2011, UTS began implementing a bold City Campus Master Plan – a vision to deliver a vibrant and engaging education precinct that will fundamentally change the way the university delivers teaching, learning and research. The City Campus Master Plan has now delivered 14 projects in eight locations including four new landmark buildings designed by acclaimed architects such as Gehry Partners, Bligh Voller Neild and Hassell.

In the midst of this $1+ billion renovation, UTS realised it needed a coordinated signage system to bring its master plan vision to life.

Delivering a Digital Wayfinding Ecosystem

UTS began collaborating with Pam Wayfinding, using the platform to audit existing signs in weeks, instead of months. It also used PAM to juggle feedback between project and faculty managers, signage manufacturers and designers while designing and implementing 8,000 signs.

UTS wanted a wayfinding system that served students in the way they know best. UTS worked closely with PAM to create a digital ecosystem of physical and digital signs using PAM OS – the first Australian university to do so. Students access wayfinding through signage and PAM 360 digital directories, kiosks, and a personal wayfinding experience called MYUTS, using PAM 360 eXplorer. The popularity of the these new wayfinding touchpoints shows that students are quick to embrace digital wayfinding solutions.

"We welcome thousands of new students every year and enrolments are growing, so taking the stress out of wayfinding is really important.

Previously, we had a lot of problems with redundant signage... a single name change can impact multiple signs across campus, which makes signage a big beast to manage. PAM reduces the costs of refurbishment by helping us to track movements around campus, and I think PAM will deliver a huge saving down track..."
