Signage Requests

Signage requests

In April 2022, the university announced our new name of Toronto Metropolitan University, which will be adopted in a phased approach. A project is currently underway to update Ryerson-branded signage to reflect our new institutional identity. 

Our new name provides us with the opportunity to create a cohesive experience for our students, faculty, staff, partners and stakeholders - it is critical that we maintain brand consistency. 

For information on the roles and responsibilities for replacing our institutional signage, visit the Vice-President, Administration and Operations’  Update on Renaming Activities for VPAO.

Departmental signage: Order signs for your department’s space

Examples of department signage

Departmental signage intended to be installed within a department’s space or assigned area is the responsibility of the individual department and must conform to the current TMU standards.

Departmental signs include:

  • department directories, staff directories and office plans and inner departmental wayfinding
  • name plates for offices or room IDs for assigned spaces
  • department IDs within assigned, departmentally-controlled spaces
  • signage related to a department’s rebranding
  • signage required for equipment that is specialized and operated only by particular users (e.g. research lab equipment)
  • custom three-dimensional lettering, wall graphics or window films

Employees can order interior office signage for their assigned, interior departmental spaces or building directory updates through the  (google form) Departmental Signage Request form (external link) 

Review the TMU  (PDF file) Signage Standards Manual for a full list of the types of signs available.

Production and installation timelines

It takes anywhere between two to six weeks to produce and install signage. Be sure to build this lead time into your planning. We are requesting that all departments update their branded signage by the summer of 2023. 

Leased Spaces

For changes to signage such as tenant directories and floor listings in leased buildings, please contact the Facilities Help Desk (Fixit). Our team will facilitate signage orders and updates with the property management teams of the leased facilities.
