Design Guidelines & Standards

The guidelines and standards provided on the linked pages below outline the ways the new and renovated University buildings and spaces should contribute to the campus environment.  They should be used by consulting architects, engineers, landscape architects, and other designers to ensure that their projects support the Campus Development Plan and the proper procedures for design, construction, and renovation.

Design Guidelines and Review of Campus Projects, Instructions to Design Professionals, and the Products + Materials Summary Form.  The documents also describe the project process once a project is initiated and the design review process that is used for projects that have a significant affect on the campus.
