University Shade Projects

Commercial shade structures can be incorporated into various areas of a college or university campus to provide shade and enhance the comfort of students, faculty, and visitors.

Shading Your University or College Campus Amenities

Here are some areas where shade structures can be added:

  1. Outdoor Seating Areas: Install shade structures over outdoor seating areas such as courtyards, patios, or campus gathering spaces. This creates shaded spots for students and faculty to study, socialize, or relax.

  2. Cafeterias and Dining Halls: Enhance outdoor dining spaces with shade structures to provide students with comfortable shaded areas to enjoy their meals.

  3. Campus Walkways: Place shade structures along campus walkways to offer shade for students as they move between buildings or attend outdoor classes.

  4. Student Recreation Areas: Install shade structures in outdoor student recreation areas, such as sports fields, tennis courts, or basketball courts. This provides shade for athletes, spectators, and participants during games and practices.

  5. Outdoor Classrooms: Create shaded outdoor learning spaces by adding shade structures to facilitate outdoor classes or study areas. This allows students and faculty to enjoy a comfortable learning environment while being protected from the sun.

  6. Campus Bus Stops: Install shade structures at campus bus stops to provide shelter and shade for students waiting for public transportation.

  7. Libraries and Study Areas: Place shade structures near library entrances or outdoor study areas. This allows students to study outdoors comfortably while having protection from direct sunlight.

  8. Campus Entry Points: Enhance the entrances to the campus with shade structures, providing shade for visitors, students, and faculty as they enter and exit the campus.

  9. Event Spaces and Amphitheaters: Install shade structures in outdoor event spaces and amphitheaters to offer shade for attendees during performances, concerts, or outdoor lectures.

When selecting shade structures for a college or university, it's important to consider the campus's architectural style, durability, and functionality. The structures should blend seamlessly with the campus environment while meeting the needs of the students, faculty, and visitors.
