Revise the signage around the university

The signage around the university needs to be revised so it is clearer and less complicated.

This would not only help students on a daily basis but would also help people with sight issues, people with Dementia and people suffering from other mental or memory illnesses.

The design is poor, the signs do not even have the Health Centre on them, and a less confusing, perhaps larger and clearer design would be an improvement.

Complete 12/06/18 Following conversations with the national Alzheimer's Society and other research body’s I have had discussions with the University estates team and passed on a list of recommendations to make the signage clearer and easier to understand. I am very pleased to say that over the summer period signage will be updated across the university with greater emphasis on where the health centre is and a new icon to make it clear to everybody that this is a doctor’s surgery. This was made possible with the help and assistance of the university estates team.

Update 20/11/17 I will be working with the university to look to ensure that signage is as clear. I will be working with the Alzheimer's student led project and relevant partners and organisation for best practice guidelines in relation to making the signage more dementia friendly. I will also work on ensuring the on campus health centre is clearly labelled on university signage and ensure that this is understood by international students as well as home students.

This seems like a basic thing to get right.
