Signage guidelines apply to temporary interior signage on the USG campus for internal staff and academic programs. These guidelines do not apply to any department-managed kiosks or bulletin boards nor does it apply to signage managed by Conference & Event Services. Please help USG promote a unified and attractive campus while minimizing the need for maintenance and repair of our buildings.
