SPO handles requests for signs that:

  • Identify an office, lab, room, or special-use area
  • Indicate directions
  • Provide information or special instructions

Although there is a predetermined size, format, and lettering style for all office and laboratory signs, there may be an occasional opportunity to be more creative with directional signs, storage space signs, etc. Graphic images may be used for those signs as long as there is no conflict under the university's policy and procedures.


Room and lab signs are provided at no charge. Whether you are ordering a new sign or a replacement, use one of these request forms:

Please fill out the proper form completely. For laboratory signs, the correct warning label information must be provided. Signs cannot be posted without all applicable labels.

Use the directory request form to add information to the directories located in PSOM buildings.

Lead Time

Turnaround is based on the number of requests. Office signs generally take two (2) to five (5) days. Labs signs may take from five (5) to ten (10) days, since all requests must be approved by the Department of Environmental Health and Radiation Safety.  SPO must ensure that appropriate licenses (e.g., radiation, infectious waste) are on file with EHRS.
