Green exit signs now appearing on campus

Members of the Queen’s community may notice new signs marking exits in some buildings. New green signs that feature a person running and an arrow marking the direction to the nearest exit are being used in all new buildings and new renovation projects, instead of the red-letter EXIT signs.

The green signs are the new international standard to mark emergency exits and are required in any new construction or new renovation on campus, according to the revised Ontario building code.

The signs are already in place in the recently renovated first floor of Dunning Hall, and will be installed in the two new residence buildings now under construction.

The university is not required to replace existing red-letter EXIT signs.
