Campus Design Standards

The Campus Design Standards are 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.

In 2019, the standards are being revised and, except where noted, are provided below.  All 2019 PDFs are bookmarked by section.  As additional revisions become available the documents will be updated here.
