With an audience raised on digital communications, digital signage is an ideal way to engage today’s and future generations of students. Taking advantage of the latest digital signage technologies not only streamlines communications but also reduces ongoing costs and can easily be scaled across multiple campuses.

Rapidly replacing static notice boards and posters, digital screens allow campuses to streamline communications with students, faculty and visitors. News announcements and campus events can be displayed alongside class schedules in real-time to keep students and faculty up-to-date. Even more importantly, the use of a secure and collaborative, cloud-based content management system simplifies the management of communications. This enables control of the entire network of screens whilst at the same time allowing for tailored content on specific screens. For example, an advertisement for an upcoming law student networking event can be scheduled to only appear in digital screens within the law faculty area.
For universities with multiple campuses, this provides a cost effective and flexible solution which can be implemented across multiple locations to communicate with any number of students, faculty and visitors quickly and efficiently. Digital signage can also be paired with other technology platforms to enable content to be pushed directly to student or faculty phones.
Build ambiance and create a memorable first impression in the campus foyer with a dynamic larger-than-life LED screen. Placing digital screens throughout common areas can assist in driving interest and boosting student engagement. Utilise screens to welcome new staff and students, share event highlight videos, or recognise student achievements. These forms of messages, which can be tailored to different locations of a multi-campus university, create a feeling of warmth and belonging.
University campuses are constantly evolving and expanding. By offering a digital wayfinding solution, universities can assist new visitors in navigating their way around the grounds and avoid the risk of getting lost. Current students will also benefit from digital wayfinding as locating a new classroom or facility will be easier than ever. Interactive digital kiosks located throughout campuses are an excellent means of wayfinding, with the dynamic capability of digital allowing content to be updated anywhere, anytime. The ability to customise the exterior design of a kiosk also ensures that the digital wayfinding will fit seamlessly within the campus environment and complement any existing static wayfinding signage.
Room management is a huge challenge for many universities. Linked to a calendar system, digital meeting room signs make reserving spaces simple avoiding confusion and double ups. To avoid unused rooms due to no-shows, universities can utilise a “check in” functionality which allows the central system to set a time when the meeting should be cancelled if not checked in, and the room becomes available to others. Room timetables can also be displayed on common room digital screens, so students and faculty can quickly check which room has availability.
Digital parking kiosks not only allow facilities to show parking rates but also display additional information on campus-based events and news. This can also provide an opportunity to generate an additional revenue stream by selling advertising space to nearby stores and cafes. The digital parking kiosk can provide visitors with ease of entry and exit, live traffic and safety updates, and most importantly deliver parking and pricing information.
