In higher education, digital signage has become more of a necessity that a luxury. By investing in digital signage, colleges are able to create their own content, personalize the campus experience to visitors, create a brand, establish a presence, stand out among the competition, and attract prospective students to enroll. Colleges can accomplish these things by installing one or more of the infinite forms of digital signage, which include video walls, video boards, video board ribbons, kiosks and 4K displays.
Umass Amherst installed a touch-screen kiosk to give current students and visitors a taste of the football team’s past. Prior to the kiosk, the university only had printed media guides to give current and prospective students information on the football program. The kiosk enables the school to display 130 years of its football history, including player stats, information on the band, mascot, helmet designs and how game days were conducted. The kiosk was geared towards winning over prospective students, to keep current students engaged with the school’s football program, to impress visitors, and provide alumni a sense of nostalgia during their visits back to campus.
Digital signage is a top technology that help schools interact with today’s college students. It provides multiple benefits in the higher education realm, from helping schools communicate messages in a more cost-effective manner, launch emergency notifications, provide wayfinding capabilities, and beyond.

Digital signage is one of the hottest forms of technology used on college campuses across the country. Colleges use their digital signage solutions to boost their sports culture, provide wayfinding on campus, teach classes, and ultimately attract prospective students. However, digital signage gets tricky and can fail if colleges make major mistakes, including not knowing what style of digital signage to use, creating boring content, investing in a solution that doesn’t fit the space they want to install it in, not being careful with the equipment, and hiring cheap labor to do the job.
