Communications Toolkit

We’re all in this together! As UW–Madison reopens, we want to encourage all members of the campus community to do their part in following health protocols and safety guidelines. Help us share a consistent message across campus by using these assets in your communications.

Order Signage

We collaborated with DoIT printing to stand up a store to order operational signage at no cost to departments, schools, colleges, and units. Signs include campuswide health and cleaning protocols, physical distancing floor decals, symptom tracking, and guidelines for handwashing, meeting rooms, kitchens/breakrooms, water fountains, and more. We will continue to work on best practices for installing signage.

Physical Plant will provide and hang the public health protocol signage designated for major entrances of campus buildings. They will also provide and hang elevator signage.

Install Signage

Facilities Planning & Management requests that departments use adhesive command strips to affix signage in order to minimize damage to paint and plaster. DoIT will include command strips with signage orders placed through the online store (center one strip approximately an inch below the top of the sign and center another strip approximately one inch from the bottom). Command strips can also be ordered through Shop@UW if you are creating your own custom signs.

Guidance and instruction on signage is available at https://go.wisc.edu/signage-guidance-smartrestart. FP&M also created a compendium of sample room layouts for reference on sign placement: https://go.wisc.edu/sample-room-layouts-smartrestart.
