Event Parking Signs

To prevent excessive signage waste and create consistent markings on campus University Police has H-Frame sign stands available for use for on-campus events. Have a regularly occurring or annual event? You can have a sturdy, reusable sign to place. No more worry about which way to print the arrows!

The H-Frame signs are available for check-out at Weizenblatt Hall.* Each frame comes with an adjustable arrow sign in the bottom section. The department has several general area signs available for use, or you can contact FastSigns of Asheville to have your own custom re-usable sign made (approximately $20 each).

For more details contact Assistant Police Chief Danny Moss (dmoss@unca.edu or 828.350.4578)

*There will be a $40 replacement fee for lost or damaged sign frames.
