  • 1.  Themed Meeting Rooms

    Posted 09-19-2023 17:53


    We are trying to theme out all of our meeting rooms and add wall decals...etc to make them more fun and tied to campus. I was wondering if anyone had any great examples of meeting/conference rooms in their buildings that were themed out and if you have any photos to share for inspiration? 

    Thank you!!

    You should check out the Iowa Memorial Union at The University of Iowa.  You can see pics on their website.

    In the Student Centers at the University of Houston, we have themed conferences room. Each conference room is named after a neighborhood in Houston and is decorated with photos of landmarks from those areas. Some room name examples include: 

    • Uptown  
    • Midtown
    • Heights 
    • Washington Avenue 
    • River Oaks

    We recently completed some wall decor around the UWF Commons. We did not go into meeting rooms, but the idea is in line with your project. I'll attach some pics.

    Our Student Union at CSU Bakersfield has the Blue, Green, Yellow and Red conference rooms. They originally had colored chairs to match the room names. Since then, the Red Room was repurposed into offices, and all chairs were replaced with... tan. I do like the idea of changing them to the Roadrunner Room, Kit Fox Room and Coyote Room and hanging the appropriate photos.

    However, in the single, coolest thing our campus has ever done, our old dorms were named after lands in Lord of the Rings: Dobry, Entwood, Lorien, Numenor, Rivendell, and Rohan.

    Hi Jenny,

    Attached are images and other info from two recent profiles from The Bulletin's Renovation & Construction edition that show use of theme in design at Georgia Tech and UNC-Charlotte, along with an article from the 2021 Bulletin R&C edition on the topic of environmental branding.
