Higher education campuses are veritable cities, with university lighting needs that span from small classrooms to large lecture halls, from dormitories to offices, from gymnasiums to street lighting. Enabling the student and providing the best atmosphere for student living are key priorities for a campus. The right lighting can enhance feelings of safety, enable students to perform varied tasks and boost learning ability.
