New wayfinding system being introduced for Princeton

May 10, 2022

In an effort to help the campus community and University visitors better navigate Princeton’s expanding campus, new, accessible map kiosks have been installed at key campus entries, in time for Reunions and Commencement. 

In order to develop the wayfinding system, Princeton partnered with the global design firm Applied Information Group, which has designed wayfinding systems for cities such as London, Madrid and Rio de Janeiro, and institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park.

Working with representatives from Campus Life, the Office of Communications, University Services and Nassau Hall, Applied Information and the Facilities team, led by Aaron Feldman and Dan Casey, held multiple naming workshops aimed at ways to make navigating campus more intuitive.  The new map incorporates campus “neighborhoods” which help users orient themselves and locate all campus destinations.
