Campus Design Standards

Our Campus Design Standards have been established to generate a consistent approach to designing and constructing buildings on the University of Oregon campus. These standards emphasize the importance of Life Cycle Costs and Maintenance Reliability over time. The University anticipates each of the buildings it constructs will be occupied for at least 100 years. We are targeting a building quality that will endure this test of time. The following links will take you to our Design Standards. The Table of Contents has bookmarked links to each individual section of the standards, as they are organized in CSI format. The current standards were drafted in 2011. Design Standards will be updated in 2019.
