Digital signage on campus

The digital screen network can be used to welcome staff, students and visitors to campus, promote key messages, and direct people to specific event spaces and car parks, etc.

There are eight digital signs across campus, two of which also have LED screens:

  • Chancellor’s Building (car park side) – includes LED screen
  • Chancellor’s Building (atrium side) – includes LED screen
  • Chancellor’s car park (corner of Barnes Hall Road and The Covert)
  • Darwin (bottom of University Drive)
  • IC4 (Entrance on University Drive)
  • Keele Hall

The University also has a number of TV display screens situated within buildings around campus that can be used in the same way.
