Campus Development Guidelines

The University is currently creating campus development guidelines to improve the aesthetics of campus buildings, the site, and ultimately the entire image of the campus. These guidelines establish the foundation for which all new buildings, building additions, and renovations must adhere to.
The new standards provide direction for future facility development. They include values related to architectural consistency and issues related to the total campus environment. The guidelines are organized into six major categories:

  • Guiding Principles
  • Common Elements
  • Architectural Features
  • Walls and Color
  • Site Features
  • Campus Environment

The guidelines define what is expected in each of the above areas of emphasis and how they may be achieved in different components of a building and its site. The recommendations of the guidelines, along with other components of the master plan design, must never be compromised. The most recent guidelines completed in April 2002 are included.
