Campus Design Standards


The design standards used in Planning and Projects for all University projects are based on three divisions,

  1. Site Guidelines
  2. Building Guidelines
  3. Precinct Studies

Site Guidelines - Site guidelines provide a set of design principles to guide the siting of buildings and formation of open spaces. These guidelines include,

  •  Linear Framed Views
  •  Discreet Outdoor Rooms
  •  Modest Entrances
  •  Rectilinear Building Form
  •  Legacy of Landscape Features
  •  Covered Walkways and Arcades

Building Guidelines - Building guidelines highlight the key architectural form and character appropriate to building design. These guidelines include,

  •  Building Scale & Massing
  •  Architectural Character
  •  Porches & Arcades
  •  Ground Level Treatment
  •  Building Entrances
  •  Windows
  •  Materials & Color
  •  Roof Treatment

Precinct Studies - Precinct studies provide examples of applying site design and guidelines to a specific precinct to create a coherent site design concept for that area.
